About us


The Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Project DOSS: SECURE-BY-DESIGN IOT OPERATION WITH SUPPLY CHAIN CONTROL focus on improving the resilience of IoT supply chains.

The 12 member DOSS consortium of industrial actors, research institutes and academia from 6 European countries encompasses all stakeholders of the IoT ecosystem, including service operators, OEMs, technology providers, developers, and security research experts. End users will be involved in a living lab environment.

The project, based on the secure-by-design principle, introduces innovations at several stages of the IoT supply chain:

  • Integrated communication flow between the key stakeholders – “Supply Trust Chain”
  • Comprehensive security descriptor of IoT devices – “Device Security Passport”
  • A multifunction testing module for the testing of IoT devices, 3rd party applications, open-source applications and in-house development
  • A digital cybersecurity twin to simulate IoT architectures
  • An architecture security validator to assure compliance with legal requirements and industry standards.

The results will be demonstrated with three IoT use case implementations – automotive, smart home, and energy.

The work shall lead to the following project results which constitute the DOSS secure-by-design operation concept and technical architecture.

The overall work will be performed in three major phases, continuously advancing the TRL level of the system.

Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe is the 9th framework programme of the European Union (EU) and is its main funding tool for research and innovation with a budget of 95.5€ billion spanning from 2021 to 2027. Through financing research and innovation projects, Horizon Europe tackles climate change, helps to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and boosts the EU’s competitiveness and growth.

The budget is divided amongst three main pillars that will support all the areas of research and innovation: excellent science, global challenges and industrial competitiveness, innovative Europe, and widening participation and strengthening the European Research Area.

Managed and implemented by the European Commission, the programme facilitates collaboration and strengthens the impact of research and innovation in developing, supporting, and implementing EU policies while tackling global challenges. It supports the creation and better diffusion of excellent knowledge and technologies.

It creates jobs, fully engages the EU’s talent pool, boosts economic growth, promotes industrial competitiveness, and optimizes investment impact within a strengthened European Research Area.
