Description Supporting basic security mechanisms such as trust assurance, encryption, signing, authentication, key storage on both virtualized and dedicated HW. This will help the make security features more efficient (power, time, trust) and increase the security level within a WSSN.
Main output Common SCOTT hardware chip(s) plus guidelines on how to use and integrate the security chip in existing hardware and software stacks, as well as an API to simply integrate the hardware module in an existing software implementation.
BB category Methodology (for SW/HW development), HW component
Baseline Chip manufactorers already provide security modules for different purposes (HSM, TPM). Within SCOTT we want to define guidelines on how to choose and use the right module depending on the application and its requirements w.r.t. power consumption, time, speed etc.
Current TRL TRL 3-4, HW modules exist (mainly for IT security) but cannot directly be used in WSNs and smart sensors
Target TRL TRL 5-6, the HW module will be integrated in SCOTT‘s demonstrators and resulting prototypes
