IoT-based airport systems: A unified approach towards establishing trust for high security and integrity of industrial IoT platforms and sensors

This paper introduces the latest research information on the emerging importance of internet of things (IoT) and edge or fog computing in modern Operational Technology (OT) based airport systems. It cites the novel aspects that arise as they become integral parts of critical systems such as airport; building automation; energy; environmental, physical and perimeter security; passenger processing and other airport systems. IoT-based sensors provide a whole new range of features considerably advanced than those of previous generations of sensors, by capturing and processing data and information at the source. Although the benefits of using IoT-based platforms and edge computing have proven a game changer for airport systems, aspects such as the privacy, security and safety and risk of utilising IoT-based architectures emerged from airport operators, as they were introduced and employed at airport operational environments. It is the aim of this paper to provide readers with the latest research on technologies that address those topics and their importance within an airport business and operational framework. This research has taken place in the context of CHARIOT project under the funding of Horizon programme by a consortium of companies that developed and validated those methods and tools that aim to address the privacy, security and safety aspects of IoT-based airport systems.
