Overview

Home device and network security is an area with major research challenges and great potential for very short concept-to-market cycles and rapid commoditisation of innovative solutions. Security in this space often builds on already established research trends, but demands that known theoretical methods are applied on new innovative contexts and new concepts with often extreme requirements with respect to usability, ubiquity, privacy and simplification.

This project is researching and developing home network and service security, including development of security frameworks for devices such as smart phones, digital cameras, home hubs and Internet TVs; protocols to connect devices with cloud services; security analysis of remote management systems for home appliances; and a security framework for content sharing between the home and social networks.
