Congratulations to Gareth and John

Congratulations to Dr Gareth Howells (PI) and Professor John Batchelor (Co-I) upon their successful enterprise award of £22,421.14 from the University of Essex (CDE) for the project entitled ‘Security for the Internet of things challenge’.

The project forms part of ‘The High Entropy Internet of Things (HERIoT)’ initiative, a collaboration between the Universities of Kent and Essex and Metrarc Ltd. It will investigate the feasibility of adapting novel secure systems techniques for deriving encryption keys from the operating characteristics of electronic devices (termed ICMetrics) for operation on networked Internet of Things (IoT) devices with a specific focus on the characteristics of the antennas and sensors associated with the devices.
