S1 - Scalable Trust Infrastructures

S1 – Scalable Trust Infrastructures (ended after CROSSING I)


Trust assessment of digital objects and the provision of trustworthy cryptographic keys are the foundation for secure communications. Exiting solutions mostly focus on “hard trust” and only insufficiently link trust to the physical world, making them inadequate for the Internet of Things (IoT). The goal of Project S1 is to provide a foundation for tamper-proof, context-aware and decentralized trust mechanisms for the IoT. This goal will be achieved by leveraging a cross-layer approach for establishing context information, and adapting the consensus guarantees of blockchain technology to make trust information tamper-proof.
