“Corona brings Digitization Push” – an Interview with Project Coordinator Mario Drobics

Corona tracking, resilience and trust, open innovation and standards – the crisis has brought many IoT issues to light.
Under the title “With standards into the future” these will be examined in more detail at the IoT Fachkongress on 4 November.

Networked systems must function robustly and data must be exchanged securely and confidentially. This is a big issue not only in the private sector, but also in the industrial sector, because this is industrial espionage. In most cases, it is not only about data, but also about the control of industrial plants. If these are manipulated, the result can be very massive damage to equipment and infrastructure.

6th IoT4CPS Plenary Meeting conducted as Remote Session

The last large internal IoT4CPS plenary meeting took place on May 14, 2020 as a remote session via Zoom. The inevitable online format however did not in any way effect the meeting´s productivity and dynamic. Many thanks to all partners for a valuable exchange of insights and fruitful discussion.

We are currently in the process of preparing white papers in order to put all findings into plain language. We look forward to sharing results, challenges and outlooks with the public in the course of the upcoming months.

14th IoT Talk in Salzburg on the topic of “Security and Trust in the IoT”

Salzburg Research is organizing “Security and Trust in the IoT” on Ocotober 1, 2020.

The 14th IoT Talks will focus on concepts and solutions in the field of “Security and Trust in IoT”. A research report published by Microsoft (“IoT Signals”) in July 2019, based on a survey of 3,000 companies, showed that 97% of all respondents had security concerns when implementing IoT projects. However, this does not affect the acceptance of the technology.

So what can be done to ensure confidence in the security and protection of the Internet of Things?

IoT4CPS to host WISI Workshop at ARES 2020

The factory of the future requires an effective interconnection of machinery, robots, lines, products, sensors and operators to each other and to back-end systems. The industrial propagation environment may also be harsh, mostly metalized, and suffering from man-made, impulsive interference. Industrial IoT priorities are security, low latency, reliability and low cost. However, smart factories are also looking for enhanced services for people and machines that create an added value that is beyond the limits of the production environment, such as indoor localisation, smart logistic support, remote maintenance and access to machine data and advanced IT infrastructure, smart tracking of connected components and products.

In this workshop we invite papers to discuss security demands of Industry 4.0, as well as specific security tools and methods, which enable interconnection of engineering activities at multiple levels of security and safety, in order to improve system resilience and to support security lifecycle management.

This year´s event will be hosted as an all digital conference.

IoT4CPS Demo Video: MQTT Security and AMiner Anomaly Detection

The IoT4CPS demo video gives a short introduction to a demonstrator developed within the IoT4CPS project. This demonstrator integrates the logdata-anomaly-miner (AMiner) in a small testbed, consisting of a cyber-physical system (a robotic arm) and IoT devices communicating via MQTT. It shows the benefits of using anomaly detection and security measures in a CPS / IoT environment.
