Emerging technologies for the Internet of Things (IoT) have the potential to provide many benefits to improve eHealth where the Things include smart phones, tablets, sensors, sensor nodes, and actuator nodes. The IoTs successful deployment depends on ensuring security and privacy, which need to adapt to their processing capabilities and resource use.
The primary objective of the ASSET project is to research and develop risk-based adaptive security methods and mechanisms for IoT in eHealth using game theory and context-awareness that increase security to an appropriate level. The security methods and mechanisms will adapt to dynamic changing conditions of IoT, including usability, threats, and diversity/heterogeneity.
The secondary objective is to increase understanding of, and thus ability to develop, interoperable techniques and algorithms which will predict and measure the risk of damages and future benefits and adapt their decisions upon those predictions.
ASSET's case study will lead to the design of adaptive strategies for the dynamic interplay between security and data transmission in a mobile patient monitoring system. This will use information of link quality, data transmission rate, and processing capabilities of sensor nodes and smart phones. The security adaptation will take into account the latency, energy consumption and reliability as quality of service (QoS) metrics.
The ASSET project is financed by The Research Council of Norway in the VERDIKT (Core Competence and Value Creation in ICT) program
