Development of a probe for preventive protection of IoT devices before attempts to take over

01/09/2017 to 31/08/2018

The aim of the project is to develop and implement a probe, including SW accessories, to prevent devices in the Internet of Things from attempting to take over. The proposed probe will make it possible to increase the security and reliability of the operation of the equipment or devices conected to IoT, used to solve tasks in the Industry 4.0 concept, which is also a device not originally designed for this purpose.

With the applied probe, it will be possible to safely use existing facilities and infrastructures, which can hardly be replaced immediately with new investment opportunities. Its benefits will contribute to, or even enable, the development of new types of secure services in the IoT, both in industrial, private, energy or even intelligent cities applications.
