TanSec aims to provide high-grade secure communications between roaming smartphones and in-home networked equipment such as Databox.
There is increasing interaction between user’s smartphones and smart devices in the house. Data is transferred over networks or services which may not be secure, opening vulnerabilities for potential misuse.
The project defines, implements, and evaluates new protocol and router functionality required for secure end-to-end communications. It also investigates physical interaction methods to make the system easy to use. Designs are evaluated with prospective users.
