Security is a major hindrance for wide scale adoption of IoT. Constant sharing of information between devices and users could occur without the consent of related and authorized personnel. In addition, there is a lack of a security platform that provides access control and personalized security policies based on users’ needs and context, across different types of IoT ‘things’ and smart mobile devices. The availability of such security platform in the market will enable developers and service providers to develop and offer innovative end-to-end secured IoT services that able to meet various security and privacy needs for their customers in various industry verticals.
The technology offer presents a patented solution that enhances the security of the wireless systems and devices by grouping security parameters required by the respective wireless network and from multiple layers (application/network/system) and re-sequencing them to generate a unique security key management scheme. This provides the flexibility for a user to choose or define his/her own combination of the security parameters using information from the applications, network, and systems levels, then sequence and synchronise these parameters in a manner he/she prefers to form a security key.
Three collaborative cross-layer secure IoT gateways have been successfully developed targeting at advanced manufacturing, smart home, and outdoor environmental monitoring applications.
The features and advantages of the mentioned technology include the following:
The Secured IoT Gateways enhance the security of the wireless systems and devices. Some of the applications of the Secured IoT Gateways include, but are not limited to, the following areas :
To accelerate the creation of innovative secure IoT solutions and services to meet business needs using collaborative cross-layer secure IoT gateways based on the patented ideas to strengthen the security for IoT nodes, smart devices, and services.
