Defence against Dark Artefacts – the enemy within the wall

Led by Professor Derek McAuley, Director – Horizon Digital Economy Research, University of Nottingham, the Defence Against Dark Artefacts (DADA) project is one of eleven projects receiving a total of £11m from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

DADA will address the challenges resulting from the current, widely-adopted approaches in which cloud services underpin IoT devices, in the context of the home, where network infrastructure protection is minimal and little or no isolation is provided between attached devices and the data traffic they carry.
