This ARC Discover Project aims to investigate privacy preservation protocols in a 5G integrated IoT environment through an analysis of the depth of smart-device use in common smart domains. 5G’s addition to IoT-based smart devices will be effectively deployed and utilised by a large majority of individual and organisation-based users. The knowledge-based ontology and tools developed in the project will help form the new privacy preservation mechanisms that are required for the 5G enabled environment. The construction of new AI-based tools and testing facilities as well as the generation of new knowledge in the field of privacy preservation and collaboration between universities are expected outcomes of this project.
