GOVPIMIT aims at clarifying the relationship between Internet of Things and Networks of the Future by creating mutual interest for corresponding research challenges and approaches in both communities.
In particular, GOVPIMIT will analyze the governance, privacy and security implications of the "Internet of Things". Governance implications emerge in particular with policies that cover the registration of objects in various configurations of the ONS. Privacy implications emerge with the deployment of governance policies and of the ONS service in EPCglobal network.
Governance, security and privacy issues are raised when an ONS registered "object" with a RFID chip meets "the subject", i.e., the individual Internet user, registered as registrant in the DNS with an IP address. The proposed research project will give special emphasis to this "rendezvous" point. It will address how the various governance scenarios will have impact on privacy and security issues of endusers when they interact with the IoT infrastructure, and particularly with the ONS information system services.
- Integration scenarios of IoT with EuroNF and use case scenarios of links between IoT and Euro-NF
- Recommendations on policies and governance for the ONS service
- Impact of policies and governance to ONS architecture
- Analysis and evaluation of privacy and secure authentication and identity management
