Cyber Security in the IoT

Data security is playing an increasingly important role in many fields. The security mechanisms at interfaces to industrial plants, residential buildings and people must be adapted to the latest requirements as needed.

Edge Computing

Our framework collects all data and stores it securely internally. It then pre-processes the data and sends the relevant information for further processing to local servers or, if necessary, to the cloud.

Technologies for IoT-Systems

Overview of our technologies

The IoT Systems research area combines many years of experience and expertise at Fraunhofer IIS. With our new technologies, we can assist you with getting fit for the Internet of Things.

 

Cyber Security

The progressive digitization in the industrial sector requires the development of new security concepts to meet changing needs. In the M2M communication, we deal with device-to-device authentication, context-aware authentication, life-cycle management, and key management.

 

Edge Computing

For many applications it becomes clear that data processing only in the cloud is not the optimal solution. There are currently two complementary approaches to data storage and processing: cloud and Edge Computing. Our Edge Computing platform ensures the economical and secure handling of information in the vicinity of the application.

 

Wireless Sensors

Together with industrial partners, we develop wireless sensors for different application scenarios. Our goal is to create a modular hardware and software system that can collect different environmental metrics. Afterwards, they are simply integrated into an IoT platform so that they are individually available for each target group.

 

Energy Harvesting

Self-powered, maintenance-free and wireless systems with unlimited uptime – that's the goal of our Energy Harvesting technologies. Available energy sources from the environment such as light, heat, or motion serve as an energy source for wireless sensors, displays and other small consumers.

 

IoT-COMMs

The research center IoT-COMMs aims with its work to bundle the competences of different Fraunhofer institutes. The focus here is on IoT basic technologies, information security and application know-how. Cognitive IoT-Systems provide a large contribution in the areas of industrial production, logistics and smart cities. These three areas are currently in a constant state of change due to digitization and service orientation.
