SCOTT – Secure Connected Trustable Things

SCOTT – Secure Connected Trustable Things


The acceptance of the Internet of Things (IoT) idea goes hand in hand with the level of security and privacy. In SCOTT 57 industrial and research partners over multiple domains (automative, aeronautics, rail, building&home, health) work on the trust in wireless solutions. The addressed use cases reach from air quality monitoring solutions to trustable wireless in-vehicle networks.

SCOTT intends to expand the Internet of Things:

  • For wirelessly connected “smart” sensors and actuators used in “Building & Home / Smart Infrastructure” -,

  • Mobility and health domain,

  • Ensuring operational and information security, privacy, trustworthiness and usability.

Relevance and Impact

The partners of the SCOTT consortium cover the entire value chain from IC production to final operators. This makes it possible to build an entire portfolio around trusted wireless systems and services for both residential and business customers. This will create new markets for European industry, reduce the time to market for new products, and lower the cost of trusted wireless solutions. SCOTT will work on 15 different use-case scenarios from six different application areas:

  • Aeronautics
  • Automotive
  • Building & Home / Smart Infrastructure
  • Health
  • Rail
  • Cross Domain

LCM will introduce and expand the expertise in energy-efficient real-time WSNs (wireless sensor networks), physical layer and out-of-band security concepts, security mechanisms for efficient, dependable and energy autonomous WSNs, and secure lifecycle concepts regarding authorization and online security.
