(Image source: joffi/Pixabay)A European consortium of 12 industry and academy partners from France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, including Airbus CyberSecurity, has won the approval of the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 to begin working on Brain-IoT

The focus will be on interoperability and cybersecurity in the context of the internet of things (IoT).

As IoT products and services are being deployed more regularly in real life scenarios, concerns have raised in terms of dependability, security, privacy and safety.

The Brain-IoT project, funded by the EU with a budget of US$5.96mn, aims to establish a framework and methodology that supports users of IoT platforms, providing model-based tools that are expected to aid the development of innovative, tightly integrated solutions for interoperability and cybersecurity.

As a security work package leader, Airbus CyberSecurity is expected to provide its expertise and latest technologies to the Brain-IoT framework. The company will work with a particular focus on the areas of secure IoT devices and service provision, with the objective of deploying a state-of-the-art security layer and innovative lightweight mechanisms to secure all kinds of IoT elements.

These solutions will apply to unilateral devices, such as sensors, as well as to more complex equipment, such as smartphones. Airbus CyberSecurity is also set to provide expertise to the IoT working group in promoting and strengthening security solutions for entire IoT ecosystems.

The Brain-IoT consortium is coordinated by Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (ISMB), Italy, and includes companies and institutions from five European countries.
