Is research in security important? Yes it is!

Over the last three years (from 2018 till 2020), the IoT4CPS project has addressed the challenges arising from the use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in real industrial environments. Since in this context, in addition to cybersecurity issues, aspects of availability and (physical) security from the design to the operation of the plant must also be addressed, the project developed methods for a joint consideration of safety and security over the entire life cycle. The topic of security was considered on all levels, i.e. from the sensor to the communication interfaces and all the way to networked systems. The suitability of the innovative project results for use in networked industrial production facilities and in the area of networked vehicles was evaluated by means of various industrial demonstrators.

Safety & Security Design & Methods

Complex Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) require to have dependable security embedded already on their design stages in order to avoid invasion of privacy as well as to ensure safety at all times.

Security Verification & Analysis

The digitalization and the increasing connectivity of (critical) cyber-physical objects enable the development of new applications but also leads to new safety and security related requirements in the design, testing, production and operation of these systems with resource constrained devices.

"We are convinced that IoT4CPS has provided us with extensive scientific groundwork with a high degree of practical relevance, so that next year we will be able to bring the topic of security in the context of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and the ever faster development of autonomous vehicles to a wider European audience as part of the new European research program "Horizon Europe”. Our project results very clearly reflect the combined technological competence of Austria's leading industrial companies and research partners.”

says project leader Dr. Mario Drobics, Head of Competence Unit Cooperative Digital Technologies at the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology
