Establishing trust in the home

1 min read

Looking to address what is seen to be growing security and management challenges presented by the IoT – particularly when it comes to services and technologies entering the home – BT, Imagination and Intercede have developed the Trust Continuum.

According to the partners, the Trust Continuum focuses on architectural innovation in SoCs for gateway routers, allowing the devices to become secure, intelligent hubs for all IoT devices and services within the home. Consumers, it is suggested, will benefit from added security, privacy and an intuitive user experience, while operators will see new business models and the flexibility to add and manage new trusted services.

The Trust Continuum, which is being demonstrated at BT’s Innovation 2017 event, brings together Imagination’s MIPS CPUs and Intercede’s MyTAM solution. MIPS CPUs feature Imagination’s OmniShield technology, while MyTAM enables the development of trusted applications for Android devices.

BT’s chief security researcher Paul Kearney said: “The Trust Continuum approach promises to provide a basis for security while also providing operators with the flexibility to innovate and experiment with new business models and service, as effectively illustrated by the demonstration.”
