CERTIFY is a multi-partner research project which got funding under HORIZON-CL3-2021-CS-01.

  • Achieve High Level Security

  • Detect and Respond to a wide Spectrum of Attacks

  • Powered by Collaborative/Decentralized Technologies

CERTIFY will validate the architecture through cutting-edge use-cases and pave the way towards innovative security in a broad spectrum of IoT environments.

Start: 1st October 2022

Duration: 36 Months


CERTIFY has SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely) Specific Objectives.

  • Cybersecurity awareness for IoT-enabled environments through a multi-stakeholder sharing of threats and mitigations

  • Secure reconfiguration and maintenance of customizable embedded devices by means of open hardware primitives and services

  • Perform security operational management based on bootstrapping and monitoring of attacks and malicious behaviours

  • Runtime security compliance and continuous certification methodology via objective metrics

  • Foster knowledge delivery via wide dissemination, capacity building and supporting standardization activities. Build a robust exploitation plan to boost ROI by optimizing current and future EU cybersecurity capabilities

  • Industrial validation of the CERTIFY framework in IoT ecosystems

All objectives will be validated against well defined KPIs.
