A EU-Japan collaboration which stands for “Multi-layered Security technologies to ensure hyperconnected smart cities with Blockchain, Big Data, Cloud and IoT”.
The main goal of M-Sec project is to research, develop, deploy and demonstrate multi-layered Security technologies to ensure hyper connected smart cities and empower IoT stakeholders with an innovative platform which leverages blockchain, BigData, Cloud and IoT security, upon which they can build innovative smart city applications.
The project explores secure, interoperable interactions between IoT elements based on a holistic secured cloud/edge/IoT context within a future smart city. Overall, the M-Sec paradigm complements mainstream IoT/cloud technologies, through enabling the introduction and implementation of specific classes of applications and services, which are not efficiently supported by state-of-the-art architectures.
M-Sec will achieve 4 main results:
The M-Sec smart city platforms will be distributed and robust, and based on IoT, cloud, Big Data and blockchain technologies. Through this trusted infrastructure, IoT stakeholders will be empowered to develop and operate new IoT applications for smart cities on top of smart objects. Follow our pilots in real-life smart cities: Santander (Spain) and Fujisawa (Japan)!
Build and experiment with new ideas and application services for smart cities! Startups, SMEs and developers will be connected to the M-Sec actors and be given access to a complete set of tools and infrastructures.
Our open market of applications, data and services will facilitate the exchange of value and information between IoT devices and people through virtual currencies. Check the incentives that motivate the interaction between smart objects and humans.
Learn how to replicate the M-Sec approach in your city! Our revenue model will guarantee the return on investment and all M-Sec benefits.

SensiNact is designed to allow platforms to interoperate, thus coexist and benefit from the richness of the variety. Additionally, it provides a fine grained security mechanism to allow access to services by only authenticated and authorized entities
& Visualisation Tool
Management Engine (T&RM Engine) is a tool working on top of the M-Sec
blockchain/Marketplace and in parallel with the corresponding
middleware so as to provide a ranking system assessing the
reliability, trustworthiness and reputation of resources providers
within the MSec ecosystem.

TPM, is added to the physical platform, It is used to store any
sensitive information that shall be protected from people having
physical Access to the electronics, such as IoT devices and gateways.
The secure element handles the integrity of the device during the
boot process and also handles the authentication and encryption for
external communication channels.
malicious activities using defense-in-depth mechanisms and threat
monitoring, thereby providing multi-layered security against policy
violations and cyber attacks, along with security health-checks
IoT application use cases such as smart cities, personal information
is often a problem. GANonymizer is a technology that automatically
deletes personal information contained in such videos using AI
functions that are necessary to ensure end-to-end security, privacy
and therefore digital trust. It is designed to support several
security functionalities aggregated in a single backend using the
LDAP standard. The central element for the security manager is a
directory service containing all information to manage security
services for clients, such services known as AAA for Authentication,
Accounting and Authorization.
where the components are organized in horizontal layers. This is the
traditional method for designing most software and is meant to be
self-independent. This means that all the components are
interconnected but do not depend on each other.
whole framework that provides a set of functionalities based on the combination of other components.
introduce the functional group component. A component is an self-contained software which can
communicate with other components. In this representation a component can also represent a set of components. We are not representing interfaces and connectors.
