Tightening security on the Internet of Things

“The Internet of Things is rapidly becoming embedded in everyday lives, but daily we hear reports of security failures and data breaches, inevitably undermining consumer trust. Alongside enhanced security features, we must also address some fundamental design questions, like why does your central heating control need to share your personal data with a service on the far side of the planet?” Professor Derek McAuley, Director of Horizon Digital Economy Research

EPSRC recently announced funding for PETRAS 2 (Privacy, Ethics, Trust, Reliability, Acceptability and Security) – a National Centre of IoT Excellence enabling the UK to become a world-leader in IoT security and associated systems security.

PETRAS 2 will build further on the established and successful platform of the PETRAS hub.
