ATHENA DeSSUF : A Methodology for the Design of a Safe, Secure and User-Friendly Reactive Programming Language for the Internet of Things

In the Internet of Things (IoT), billions of devices are connected. Very often, these devices are programmed with the C programming language, mostly because of the limited hardware resources of such objects. However, C is error-prone, and software bugs make devices both unreliable and vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Several cases of massive cyber-attacks using IoT devices are documented. Moreover, the IoT is more and more deployed in areas such as energy, transportation and health: it is of paramount importance such systems are reliable, safe and secure. The goal of the DeSSUF project is the design, implementation, and the evaluation of the safety, security and ease-of-use of a new programming language for the IoT.

This is a joint project between the University of OrleansLIFO, France and the University of MariborLPM, Slovenia both members of the Athena European University.
