Test-arena Blekinge – INventory REcognition (INRE)

INventory REcognition (INRE) for next-generation secure network
One of the basic prerequisites for stable IT security is that you have control over the resources available on the network, that these resources are properly configured and updated. In terms of technical resource networking, implementation and deployment can be done with reasonable efforts for IPv4 networks. But, as the transition to IPv6 networks, it is no longer as easy.

There is a potentially large number of nodes in an IPv6 network, where each node has its unique IPv6 address (or a plurality of them). This makes it difficult and time consuming to have control over their network and thus have control over their security.

Our aim with project INRE is to find a quick and efficient way to detect “hosts” in an IPv6 network and to create a test bed for IT security in Blekinge.

About Internet of Things
With the Internet of Things we face the biggest expansion ever of the network. Boilers, door locks, cars, lathes, drillers, toothbrushes, dog doors, parking lots, contact lenses. Every day more than 5 million new things are connected to the Internet. 2020 is estimated to be 50 billion things connected, something that will change our everyday lives and also create completely new challenges from a security perspective.
