IoT Security Framework for Smart Cities and Critical Infrastructure

Released under a common criteria licensing agreement, the IoTSI framework can be implemented without licensing costs or additional charges.

The Internet of Things Security Institute (IoTSI) has released an IoT security framework for smart cities and critical infrastructure which will enable and facilitate the secure and safe deployment of IoT & IIOT eco-systems.

IoTSI is a not-for-profit academic and industry body dedicated to providing frameworks and supporting educational services to assist in managing security within an IoT eco-system.

The Institute’s President Alan Mihalic said that the objective of the IoTSI is to provide the cyber and privacy frameworks that can be implemented from the base build through to the build completion.

For maintaining data confidentiality, privacy and public safety levels that meet community and corporate expectations, there is a need for a globally available cyber smart cities and critical infrastructure framework, Mihalic noted.

IoTSI framework provides business, government and industry a publicly available framework capable of addressing emerging and existing IoT security challenges within the built environment.

Common criteria licensing agreement

Released under a common criteria licensing agreement, the IoTSI framework can be implemented without licensing costs or additional charges.

“The IoTSI does not even charge membership dues. We did not want to be caught up in forcing membership in order to participate. It too often drives many not- for-profit agendas. We simply and easily want to get the framework to cyber and privacy professionals where it is needed,” said Alan Mihalic.

Though the framework is not a commercial offering, Mihalic is expecting that there’ll be organizations that will provide professional services to assist with the framework’s deployment.
