The challenge

A multiply of IoT devices, a multiply of security concerns

The IoT device market is thriving and there is no sign of it slowing down. IoT devices are used in every industry – from precision agriculture and health monitoring to smart cities and smart homes. It’s expected that by 2020 there will be over 30 billion IoT devices and nearly $6 trillion dollars will be spent on IoT solutions.

These handy IoT devices are designed to make our lives easier. They’re even more useful when they can talk to one another, combining information from various viewpoints to create a more customised user experience. However, up until now, there hasn’t been a central and secure platform via which users can add and connect multiple IoT devices.

Our response

Empowering users to manage multiple IoT devices on a secure and central platform

Data61 has developed a secure and modular IoT platform that enables multiple IoT devices such as sensors, actuators, and cloud services to send signals to one another while maintaining security.

Available as a smart phone app, the platform provides users with a central command centre from which to register and authenticate devices to talk to one another.

Once registered to the platform, the status of each device is monitored to ensure its security is not compromised.

The communication between the devices is also protected using Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS), a security feature to protect data confidentiality and integrity.

The multiple levels of security built into the platform ensures users can confidently operate in a secure and flexible environment.

The results

Linking IoT devices securely to support collaboration and innovation

This platform serves a wide variety of customers and industries. For example connecting multiple devices within the smart cities sector to enable a more in depth and holistic understanding of how the environment works or a home security alarm system that connects motion sensors, cameras and cloud visions together to encompass a more insightful monitoring service.

With more devices being connected to the Internet of Things than ever before, it is increasingly important to manage devices in a streamlined and secure way to maintain efficiency and scale operations.
