As the adoption of digital technologies expands, it becomes vital to build trust and confidence in the integrity of such technology. The SPIRIT project investigates 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 IoTbased systems. The proposed system integrates three highly novel technology concepts developed by the consortium partners. Specifically, a technology, termed ICMetrics, for deriving encryption keys directly from the operating characteristics of digital devices; secondly, a technology based on a contentbased signature of user data in order to ensure the integrity of sent data upon arrival; a third technology, termed semantic firewall, which is 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.
