The SOFIE Project

SOFIE facilitates the smooth creation of new IoT business platforms through secure open federation - powered by the SOFIE architecture, software framework, and reference implementation.

SOFIE project is based on four pillars

I Federation

Instead of integration, we have chosen federation as SOFIE’s approach. This means that each siloed IoT platform remains internally intact.

II Openness

From the business point of view, anyone can join an open system, as there are no gatekeepers or organisational architectural barriers. At the technical level, virtually any IoT platform can be joined to the federation, provided that it has some open interfaces, often even without support of the technology vendor.

III Security

We exercise security by design. We build the necessary new security and privacy features to offer better protection against cyber-attacks through the unforgeable DLTs establishing transparency and accountability, and give users better control of their data.

IV Data sovereignty

Data is shared in a controlled way, within the bounds of security and privacy policies defined by the owner of the data. While strongly coupled with security, this aspect has characteristics which go well beyond traditional information security.
