ETSI Specialist Task Force on Privacy, Security and Interoperability (STF 547) launched

ETSI has launched the STF (Specialist Task Force) 547, funded by the European Commission, on "Security/Privacy and Interoperability of standardised IoT Platforms". The purpose of the project is to refine the current status of standardisation regarding Privacy and Security (and to provide related Teaching Material) and to address the question of interoperability both from the angle of Semantic Interoperability and of the Interoperability of Platforms. The main objective is to ensure that all the results will be coherent and present an holistic view of IoT systems that can be used by IoT practitioners. To this extent, a set of guidelines will be provided to the various stakeholders (from end-users to developers or device manufacturers).
