-The aim of the SPIRIT project (U. of Kent, U. de La Rochelle, U. of Essex, U. of Geneva) is to investigate the Proof-of Concept of employing novel secure and privacy-ensuring techniques in services set-up in the Internet of Things (IoT) environment,​ aiming to increase the trust of users in IoT-based systems. The proposed system will address distinct issues related to security and privacy, hence, overcoming the lack of user confidence, which inhibits utilisation of IoT technology.+The aim of the SPIRIT project (U. of Kent (coordination), U. de La Rochelle, U. of Essex, U. of Geneva) is to investigate the Proof-of Concept of employing novel secure and privacy-ensuring techniques in services set-up in the Internet of Things (IoT) environment,​ aiming to increase the trust of users in IoT-based systems.

 One of the key points of the project is to study the notion of Semantic firewall. A semantic firewall must be able to allow or deny the transmission of data derived from an IoT device according to the information contained within the data and the information gathered about the requester, hence ensuring that access to such data is governed by the access permissions commensurate with the requester. ​ One of the key points of the project is to study the notion of Semantic firewall.
