OPen and Sustainable IoT Security (OPSIS)

Security and data protection for the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) plays an important role in the digitalisation of the state, the economy and society. In the IoT, physical and virtual systems are interconnected, increasing the dependencies between those individual components. In addition, IoT components are mostly used – for example in industrial production – for a long period of time, during which security has to be ensured. From this, new threats and risks arise, since the interconnected (and oftentimes unsecured) devices and the wireless communication protocols present an attack surface for cyber-criminals. ATHENE is analysing security flaws in widely used protocols such as Bluetooth or LoRaWAN and developing appropriate testing processes for the protocols to ensure long-term security for systems used in the IoT.
