Secure COnnected Trustable Things
Creating trust in wireless solutions and increasing their societal acceptance are major challenges to achieve the full potential of the Internet of Things. Therefore, SCOTT – Secure COnnected Trustable Things, a European effort with 57 partners from 12 countries (EU and Brazil), will provide comprehensive cost-efficient solutions of wireless, end-to-end secure, trustworthy connectivity and interoperability to bridge the last gap to market introduction. SCOTT will not just deal with 'things that are connected', but with 'trustable things that communicate securely ', i.e., things connected by secure and dependable wireless technology. SCOTT uses a standardized multi-domain reference architecture, created in a predecessor Artemis project (DEWI), which fosters reusability, scalability, and interoperability of SCOTT solutions. SCOTT also utilizes a clearly use-case driven approach with 15 use cases to build up digital ecosystems to achieve a broader market penetration for ‘trustable things that communicate securely’. Tangible results from all use cases will ultimately be shown to the public in the form of more than 20 demonstrators. SCOTT will open up new market opportunities for the European industry, reduce time to market, and decrease costs for trustable wireless solutions. SCOTT will also develop methods and tools capable of meeting use-case requirements on reliability, robustness, security, and functional safety even in harsh environments.
