With significant increases each year, cyber attacks are already a recurrent and worrisome topic that is expected to become even worse with the growing phenomenon of IoT (Internet of Things) and the millions of new interconnected devices that will enter the world wide web. At LabSecIoT, we aim to study information security problems in these new digital infrastructures, particularly in the domain of Smart Cities, where most systems have been found lacking the necessary protection against cyberwarfare, and consequently devise, with the proper development and testing, possible solutions for said issues considering the usage of adequate security communication protocols, the implementation of efficient Access Control techniques and the integration of digital certification.
These are the supporting features for our innovative development!
Adopting the best security-by-design practices to promote privacy and security, even with authentication enforced by certification, allows for a controlled level of trust.
Besides HTTP and MQTT (with or without certificates, tokens or passwords), a new lightweight and smart city oriented protocol is now available - the SCLP.
Related, useful and trustworthy information (generated by powerful algorithms) is provided, avoiding silos of information with an horizontal integrated solution.
A powerful, secure and real-time API delivers high-level relevant information (alongside its confidence ranking) as it is available (no pulling required).
Real time device tracking and lifecycle maintenance is available by managing status, position, low-level data and other relevant information.
A forward-thinking way to visualize information in real time built with cutting-edge libraries, to deliver the best user experience for decision-makers .
Our team and projects will be present and on display at the upcoming 4th annual Smart City 360˚ Summit, an event featuring a full 360° perspective on Smart Cities, bringing researchers, industry representatives, as well as up-and-coming innovators under one roof to share insights, experiences, and to connect and collaborate.
The conference will be held from 21st - 23rd of November 2018 at the beautiful Centro Cultural Vila Flor at our hometown of Guimarães, Portugal. Be sure to find us if you plan on attending!
