Secure Transparent Communications in the Industrial Internet

PI: Andrei Gurtov (LiU).

Industry 4.0 (Focus theme 4) calls for combining industrial machine sensor connectivity with cloud big data analytics. Sample application areas include smart factories, autonomous ships and vehicles, predictive maintenance and optimizations of flights. This project builds new collaboration with Lund University, Prof. Christian Gehrmann (Lund University) in the area of Industrial Internet for a postdoc position. It focuses and secure and scalable interworking of industrial equipment with assets protection and privacy control. Thus, Secure Data Sharing and Privacy with Standardization are main proposed thrust areas. It is of high relevance to industrial partners such as Combitech, Ericsson and ABB.
