Security Architecture for the Internet of Things (IoT) in Commercial Buildings

Sharing a common, IP-based infrastructure can bring a host of benefits for building automation and control systems in commercial buildings. These include centralized monitoring and control, real-time insights and status updates across the entire building, remote access via the Internet, easier maintenance and more.

However, there are significant security risks for systems that are always connected and remotely accessible via public Internet.

The security architecture developed by the Fairhair Alliance aims to address these risks by specifying device-, network- and application-level protections for systems operating in a more open, IP-based environment.
