Maintaining a secure configuration of current IoT networks such as “smart homes” or industrial networks overburdens even skilled integrators, administrators and end users. To avoid and mitigate existing security risks, CONSENT (Conformance-driven and Auto-configured Security for Home and Industrial Networks) aims at developing a new methodology that enables largely automated integration, configuration and operation of new IoT devices and, furthermore, checks the compliant behavior of the devices during operation. This new methodology leads to a robust, zone-based IT security architecture that is easy to extend and whose overall security remains at a high level even if individual devices get compromised.
Finally, this approach nicely complements existing security mechanisms and minimizes human error sources.
