GHOST: New EU-funded research project launched

The project deals with Smart Homes - households in which domestic appliances and multimedia equipment interact and can be centrally remote controlled. These Smart Homes give rise to diverse and complex cyber-security challenges, on which GHOST reacts using a pioneering, software-compatible and usable security solution. GHOST provides a transparent cyber-security environment for all Europeans living in a networked world: with minimal effort, consumers shall be aware of and understand cyber-security risks and shall make informed decisions regarding their cyber-physical security and privacy.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No GA-740923").
