Currently, when an IoT device (a “node” on the network) is attacked by hackers, the entire network can be affected, as can internet-connected third-party infrastructure services.
A new solution called iMRC uses a control server to detect attacks and takes over any devices that have been compromised to find out what vulnerability the hackers used to get in so that a software patch can be sent out.
Developed by CEA-Leti, CEA-List, and Tiempo Secure, iMRC won a Grand Défi Cyber award from the French government.
The solution includes a secure physical element and an embedded supervision system that interacts with the control server.
It should be ready for production by the end of next year and will be of particular interest for critical systems for the energy industry, the medicine of the future, and transportation.
