The Ministry of Defence is calling for research proposals to identify innovative technologies or approaches to meet the security challenges created by the Internet of Things.
For phase 1 of the programme, a number of projects of around £60,000 to £90,000 for a duration of around 3 months are expected to be funded.
We live in a ‘sensor-rich’ environment. These sensors connect in ad-hoc, local and mesh networks, operate using different protocols and standards, and use encryption to protect communications. Through this competition we want to know:
- how can we pull together and visualise data on subjects of interest from a diverse, sensor-rich, loosely connected environment that operates across different protocols and across standards?
- how can we show how sure we are of a hypothesis that 2 events/users/devices are connected, based on the data gathered?
