The Concept

The DOSS – Secure-By-Design IoT Operation With Supply Chain Control – project aims to improve the security and reliability of IoT operations by introducing an integrated monitoring and validation framework to IoT Supply Chains, including all the relevant stakeholders. DOSS elaborates on a secure-by-design methodology and implements related technology based on formalized data exchange, component testing, and architecture modeling.

What is this solution offering that’s different?
End-to-end communication

The DOSS “Supply Trust Chain” connects all relevant stakeholders with a formalized communication flow to facilitate monitoring of the movement of IoT devices from manufacturers all the way to decommissioning.

Multi-level security testing

DOSS establishes a comprehensive testing model covering all IoT components, including the binary testing of IoT devices, black-box analysis of 3rd party applications, vulnerability assessment on open-source applications, and internal developments the result of which will provide solid evidence of the existence or absence of vulnerabilities.

Security modeling in digital twin

DOSS will use an AI-assisted, flexibly configurable cybersecurity digital twin to simulate already in the design phase the architecture of selected IoT operations to identify potential attack scenarios, to analyze their impact, and to elaborate the necessary countermeasures. 

Security feedback from operation

The DOSS IoT “Supply Trust Chain” also comprises the highly protected IoT operation itself, which is integrated into the communication loop to provide relevant security-related information to other actors of the IoT supply chain.
