Secure Open Federation for Internet Everywhere

Secure open federation is the key concept of SOFIE approach, aiming to enable creation of business platforms, based on existing IoT platforms and distributed ledgers, without needing to negotiate with any gatekeeper (neither technology- nor business wise).

SOFIE addresses the challenges of the call by creating a secure and open IoT federation architecture and framework. We use Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), including blockchains and inter-ledger technologies, to enable actuation, auditability, smart contracts and management of identities and encryption keys, and to enable totally decentralised solutions with virtually unlimited scalability.

Here are the set of SOFIE's objectives:

Objective A: Define a secure, open, decentralised and scalable IoT federation architecture for sensing, actuation, and smart behaviour.
Objective B: Make IoT data and actuation accessible across applications and platforms in a secure and controlled way.
Objective C: Develop a solution to provide integrity, confidentiality and auditability of IoT data, events and actions.
Objective D: Develop an IoT federation framework to facilitate creation of IoT business platforms.
Objective E: Deploy and evaluate the SOFIE federation framework in three field trials.
Objective F: Evaluate the commercial viability of the SOFIE federation approach.
Objective G: Establish the SOFIE IoT federation approach as a major enabler for the IoT industry.
