Increasing control and trust of Smart Home

SIFIS-Home aims at providing a secure-by-design and consistent software framework for improving the resilience of Interconnected Smart Home Systems at all stack levels. To this end, the framework enables the development of security, privacy-aware and accountable applications, algorithms, and services. It makes it possible to detect and dynamically react to cyber-attacks and intrusion attempts or violation of user-defined policies, thus increasing the control and trust of Smart Home end users.

Concern about cyber-security and safety

Smart Home is an emerging application paradigm which has been gaining increasing popularity. Most recently, the Internet of Things (IoT) has been fostering a vision of Smart Home systems, where users can install connectable (smart) devices and appliances that cooperate to automatically manage home services and functionalities. This emerging market is rapidly attracting software developers to produce novel applications and services, to provide additional Smart Home functionalities. However, noticeable barriers and concerns are still present, mainly related to cyber-security and safety within Smart Home systems, as well as to the privacy and integrity of produced and consumed data, most of which are personal and sensitive.

Smart interactions

Also, many Smart Home devices use custom and proprietary security solutions that do not account for interactions with other devices in the Smart Home system. Plus, developers have to develop applications adaptable to different systems and architectures, where security aspects are often neglected or poorly addressed.

SIFIS a combination of IoT, telecommunication, cyber-security, research and standardization

The consortium combines leading industry players in the IoT, telecommunication and cyber-security markets with research and academic institutions, also involved as key contributors to premier international standardization bodies (e.g. IETF), and having leading roles in the SPARTA, CONCORDIA and CyberSec4Europe projects of the European Cyber Competence Network. SMEs active in the Smart Home and IoT markets and Open Source community complete the consortium.
