The IoTSec - Security in IoT for Smart Grids initiative was established in 2015 to promote the development of a safe and secure Internet-of-Things (IoT)-enabled smart power grid infrastructure. The 5-year Research Project received funding from the Research Council of Norway (RCN)to contribute to a safe information society. IoTSec evolved to a large research network with 9 core partners, 10 associate members, and 8 international partners. A total of 11 professors were involved, leading directly to 3 PhDs and indirectly to another 5 PhD projects.
IoTSec addresses the basic needs for a reliable and efficient, uninterrupted power network with dynamic configuration and security properties. It addresses in addition the needs of businesses and end users of additional IoT services by exploring use cases for value-added services with the intent to design the building blocks for future services that consider the necessary security and privacy preconditions of successfully deployed large-scale services. IoTSec will apply the research in the envisaged Security Centre for Smart Grids, co-located with the Norwegian Centre of Excellence (NCE Smart).
Our aim is to contribute to a secure and privacy-aware ecosystem for the Internet of Things. If you want to become part of the Initiative, please contact us. We envision your challenges, your industrial requirements, your knowledge or your infrastructure. Read more ...
