Researchers from the IoTalentum project held the network meeting (NM4), organised at Aalborg University, Copenhagen. The purpose of the meeting was to assess the progress of the project and determine whether the proposed objectives are being met. One of the objectives consists in analysing the main cybersecurity problems that arise from the implementation of IoTalentum’s infrastructure for next generation IoT and in developing new cybersecurity techniques to avoid or mitigate these problems.
In this regard, Juan Manuel Corchado, director of the BISITE Research Group of the University of Salamanca, took part in the event as leader of the cybersecurity work package, giving a presentation that helped attendees understand the current state and challenges of cybersecurity in different areas, but above all within the Internet of Things.
One of the sub-objectives of the project involves the development of cybersecurity techniques for the IoTalentum infrastructure, hardwareless identification tools for distributed data centres (MEC) and a blockchain benchmarking platform for the IoTalentum infrastructure.
The BISITE Group has extensive experience in these areas, therefore, we are keen to collaborate in the development of the project and in the training of IoTalentum researchers.
