The digital transformation is going to change our society in almost every aspect. The marriage of cyber-physical systems via wireless connectivity with powerful cloud applications will bring along the industrial internet of things (IIoT), pushing digitalization not only into our home and our cities but also to our industry. Establishing trust and dependability is especially challenging in wireless communication networks in industrial settings. In this workshop we therefore will highlight recent advances in secure and trustable wirelessly connected IIoT.

This workshop is organized by the European research project SCOTT (Secure COnnected Trustable Things), which started 2017 with a clear vision: “Building Trust in the Internet of Things” ( In this workshop, the SCOTT consortium explicitly invites contributions from outside SCOTT to complement the research within the project with a strong “outside-in view” to stimulate discussions and further research and raise awareness about the importance of the topic. Therefore we call for contributions from both, industry and academia, in the field of dependable, secure and energy efficient local wireless communication. With respect to applications, we target industrial domains like automotive, aeronautics, building, health, robotics, smart manufacturing, etc. While our focus is on creating trust in wireless communication, we invite also OSI layer 2 and above research aiming at security, safety and dependability applicable to wired and wireless communication.


The Workshop will be focusing on (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Advanced wireless sensor networks (WSN) and IIoT concepts for industrial use cases in domains like automotive, aeronautics, building, health, robotics, smart manufacturing, with the focus on one or more of the following attributes: security, safety, reliability, trustability.

  • Theoretical aspects of security, privacy, safety and trust for IIoT.

  • Innovative energy-constrained and autonomous IIoT components.

  • Dependable WSN with enhanced energy efficiency, robustness and quality-of-service.

  • Physical layer and out-of-band security in WSN applications.

  • Routing and scheduling algorithms for reliable real-time WSNs.

  • Secure identification, authentication, authorization and communication in WSN.

  • Trust anchors and trust indicators for secure IIoT systems.

  • Edge and Cloud computing services for safe and secure connected mobility applications.

IoT in aerospace: The challenge of long device lifetime


Talk title. IoT in aerospace: The challenge of long device lifetime

With IoT, the world of connectedness dives deeper into our lives. Such embedded cyber-physical systems occur in almost all areas: home, lifestyle, transport, and producing industries. It already reaches down to a simple consumer’s light bulbs and for me it is a strong indicator that this connectivity provides a lot of gains for our society. Given that, secure communication is obviously animportant ingredients to keep our society intact. However, the needs on security differ in those areas as products have varying life spans, e.g. a mobile phone gets replaced after twoyears, yet the hard- and software for flight control in an aircraft stays the same for 30+ years.

Having more than a single “one-size-fits-all approach” to secure communication for IoT becomes in interesting aspect and will be the subject in this presentation.

Martin KUBISCH's biography

As a child Martin was taken by the magic that a soldering iron can achieve. It led him to study electrical engineering andeventually discover the field of digital communication – finished with a PhD from Technical University Berlin. Since his graduation he worked fr Airbus in the Research &Technology department in Singapore, Hamburg, and Munich. Since 2013 he focused his workon secure communication technologies and their application to products and processes in the aerospace domain.
