We aim to protect

Continuous assurance and Zero Trust at the Router and Gateway Secure IOT networking

The ManySecured project’s aims are to protect people, organisations, business, infrastructure and industry from the cyber security risks posed by the Internet of Things (IoT).

We aim to do this automatically with cognitive security built on solid foundations with the power of the open source community, developing next generation technologies based on open security requirements, open specifications, an assurance certification scheme and ‘smart’ controls.

Introductory presentation

Introduction to ManySecured

Dr. Nick Allott, leading ManySecured, describes the project as:
‘a collaborative response to the problem of Router and IoT network security‘.

Collaboration is essential

Meet our partners

No single company can do it alone – Collaboration is essential to ensure interoperable security.
To facilitate this collaboration, the IoT Security Foundation has created the ManySecured Special Interest Group (SIG).
ManySecured is about leveraging the power of the crowd – working on open technical standards, specifications and finding solutions first and foremost.

  • Applicable to edge and core

ManySecured was set up to develop solutions for the Emerging threats to cyber security

Issues affecting cyber security

  • Increasing number and sophistication of cyber security attacks on iot devices and gateways
  • Large numbers of existing IoT devices installed with poor security postures
  • Increasing IoT security legisalation and responsibilities
  • Rise in importance of zero trust and continuous assurance
  • Industrial scale exploits and botnets for hire
  • Reputational damage and network resources degraded
