£2m fund to meet security challenges posed by the IoT


A £2million funding competition is being launched by Innovate UK and the Centre for Digital Enterprise on behalf of MI5, MI6 and the Government Communications Headquarters, to identify innovative technologies or approaches to meet the security challenges created by the IoT.

The IoT is a ‘sensor-rich’ environment where these sensors communicate in ad-hoc, local and mesh networks, operate using different protocols and standards and use encryption to protect communications.

The aims of the competition are to work out how to pull together and visualise data on subjects of interest from this diverse, loosely connected environment and how to be sure of a hypothesis that two events, users or devices are connected, based on the data gathered.
