Software Campus (Project ADRAS)

Automated Detection and Reaction to Anomalies in Smart Home Environments

The internet of things is growing rapidly and its devices are an integral part of nowadays smart home environments. However, this rising number of interconnected devices introduces novel attack vectors that cannot solely be addressed by proactive security mechanisms, like firewalls and anti-virus software. The ADRAS project aims to approach these problems through novel detection and reaction mechanisms, specifically tailored to the smart home environment. The software campus project is initiated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
