Plegma Labs has been awarded cascading funding from the NGI DAPSI 3rd Open Call in order to conduct the Selectshare experiment alongside the Selectshare consortium. Selectshare will innovate in two directions: Firstly, it will provide a framework for allowing discovery and selective disclosure of IoT data without violating their integrity. Secondly, it will provide user-friendly, intuitive mechanisms allowing efficient, fine grained access control over the shared data.
The project will leverage recent advances in the areas of Self-Sovereign Identities, Verifiable Credentials, and Zero-Knowledge Proofs, and it will integrate them in a platform that combines the industry-standard authentication and authorization framework OAuth 2.0 and the Web of Things specifications. We will pilot a real-world use case of sharing energy related data from two industrial partners. Our prototype will (a) include IoT devices from smart homes and buildings provided by the project partners, and (b) demonstrate controlled, privacy-preserving, and tamper-proof data sharing with stakeholders such as energy providers, utilities, and Distribution System Operators (DSOs).
