SCOTT – Secure Connected Trustable Things

Creating trust in wireless solutions and increasing their social acceptance are major challenges to achieve the full potential of the Internet of Things (IoT). Therefore, SCOTT – Secure COnnected Trustable Things, a pan-European effort with 57 key partners from 12 countries (EU and Brazil), will provide comprehensive cost-efficient solutions of wireless, end-to-end secure, trustworthy connectivity and interoperability (Technology Readiness Level 6-7) to bridge the last mile to market implementation. SCOTT will not just deal with ‚things that are connected‘, but with ‚trustable things that securely communicate‘, i.e. things interconnected by dependable wireless technology and valuing the end-users‘ privacy rules.

SCOTT uses a standardized multi-domain reference architecture, created in a predecessor project (DEWI and its "Bubble concept”) and being fully compliant with ISO 29182 – Sensor Network Reference Architecture, which fosters reusability, scalability, and interoperability of SCOTT solutions. SCOTT also utilizes a clearly use-case driven approach with 15 use cases from different areas of high relevance to European society and industry; a specific focus will be put on cross-domain use cases and heterogeneous environments, emphasizing 5G and cloud computing aspects to build up digital ecosystems to achieve a broader market penetration.

Tangible results from all use cases will ultimately be shown to a broader public via more than 20 demonstrators all over Europe.

Use Cases will be further substantiated by the development and utilization of nearly 50 technical building blocks for security/safety, distributed cloud integration, energy efficiency/autonomy of devices and reference architecture/implementations, which are all necessary to realize the SCOTT use cases and facilitate composability of systems as well as cross-domain sharing of trustable wireless technologies and services.
