The Secure Industrial IoT Gateway project aims to push the state-of-the-art in secure communication for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), focusing on the gateways that connect equipments and machines to the Internet and the Cloud. The project addresses the issue from two perspectives: making gateways more robust against attacks and detecting violations in case they occur. For the first aspect, the project will explore tools to validate the software at the core of gateways, mechanisms to isolate such software in Trusted Execution Environments, and techniques to promote redundancy and diversity in the sense of fault tolerance. For the second aspect, the project will investigate secure protocols to check the integrity of the data generated by IIoT devices on their way to the Cloud, and also non-intrusive monitoring systems to detect anomalous behavior of gateways. The project will be validated through a proof-of-concept implementation (for performance and energy-efficiency assessment) and simulations (for scalability assessment). Security will be evaluated in terms of robustness, hit rate, and false-positive rate. (AU)
