Secure Urban Infrastructures (SecUrban)

Secure information and communication systems for the Smart City

The Smart City concept aims to make cities more efficient, technologically more progressive and intelligent. Complex IT infrastructures and sensory webs deployed in a city can help protect resources and improve its citizens’ quality of life. In order for a Smart City to operate successfully, it needs information and communication systems (ICT) that are reliable and well equipped against cyber-attacks.
In close cooperation, ATHENE and Digitalstadt Darmstadt are developing sustainable concepts that ensure reliable implementations for the infrastructure and the applications. Beyond that, ATHENE develops guidelines for the prevention, detection and reaction of and to incidents, for instance by assisting those in charge at the local level.
