The University of Oxford is a globally leading research university regularly in the top three in the world.
Participation within the project will come from two of its leading departments, the Oxford e-Research Centre and the Department of Computer Science.
The Oxford e-Research Centre (OeRC) focuses on research and development of new information technology to enable groups of researchers to tackle problems with increasing scale and complexity, facilitating interdisciplinary research and creating appropriate e-Infrastructure for the support of research. It works with academic and industrial collaborators to enable the use and development of innovative computational and information technology in multidisciplinary collaborations. Through the application of distributed computing and information technologies the Centre aims to accelerate research and allow the exploration of new areas in the sciences, humanities and social sciences, and the development of multidisciplinary collaborations both nationally and internationally.
There is a strong track-record of participation in collaborative projects from the Department of Computer Science, and particularly from the team participating in this project. This group has a long-standing interest in the technologies of trusted computing, particularly in their application to commodity computing applications – first, the concept of computational grids, more recently to cloud computing. This has been extended to cover innovative architectures incorporating mobile devices and embedded systems in the internet of things. The group interacts with industrial partners through projects such as those described below, and also through active membership of the Trusted Computing Group’s Academic Liaison Programme.
Wojciech Wideł, Preetam Mukherjee, and Mathias Ekstedt from our partner KTH published in IEEE Access about their work in the SOCCRATES project.
In context of the annual Internet Festival in Pisa, the CNR Institute of Informatics and Telematics and Registro.it are organising the workshop Cybersecurity Day 2022.
The event will take place on 7 October 2022 at the Auditorium Giuseppe Moruzzi 1 in Pisa and will be attended by industry experts, researchers, representatives of the business world.
SOCCRATES provides a deep dive session on the SOCCRATES platform at the ONE Conference 2022.
Within the H2020 EU project SOCCRATES a security decision support platform has been developed for Security Operation Centres (SOCs) and Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs). This, so called ‘SOCCRATES Platform’ is targeted at organisation’s inhouse SOC and at Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP) that provide SOC services.
