PRIViLEDGE - Privacy-Enhancing Cryptography in Distributed Ledgers

Introduction:

PRIViLEDGE realises cryptographic protocols supporting privacy, anonymity, and efficient decentralised consensus for DLTs. In PRIViLEDGE, several European key players in cryptographic research and from the fintech and blockchain domains unite to push the limits of cryptographic protocols for privacy and security. Results from PRIViLEDGE are demonstrated through four ledger-based solutions:

1. verifiable online voting;

2. contract validation and execution for insurance;

3. university diploma record ledger;

SPEAR - Secure and PrivatE smArt gRid

Introduction:

 

The SPEAR (Secure and PrivatE smArt gRid) project is a research program, co-funded by the Horizon 2020 framework programme of the European Union. SPEAR aims at developing an integrated platform of methods, processes, tools and supporting tools for:

 

- Timely detection of evolved security attacks such as APT, Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed DoS (DDoS) attacks using big data analytics, advanced visual-aided anomaly detection and embedded smart node trust management.

PoSeID-on - Protection and control of Secured Information by means of a privacy enhanced Dashboard

Introduction:

PoSeID-on is aimed at developing a novel Privacy Enhancing Dashboard for personal data protection supporting the pillars of the new EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with regards to digital security, that will be implemented within a single, integrated tool, adopting blockchain and smart contracts technology.

CYBER-TRUST - Advanced Cyber-Threat Intelligence, Detection, and Mitigation Platform for a Trusted Internet of Things

Introduction:

The CYBER-TRUST project aims to develop an innovative cyber-threat intelligence gathering, detection, and mitigation platform to tackle the grand challenges towards securing the ecosystem of IoT devices. The security problems arising from the flawed design of legacy hardware and embedded devices allows cyber-criminals to easily compromise them and launch large-scale attacks toward critical cyber-infrastructures.

DEFeND - Data Governance for Supporting GDPR

Introduction:

The rapid advances in ICT have raised the need to adapt to this progress for organisations (pushing them towards e-services and increase their efficiency), public authorities (stimulating new services to citizens and reducing complexity) and individuals (enabling them to communicate personal information more efficiently).

DEFeND is an international partnership that will deliver a platform to empower organisations in different sectors to assess and comply to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

FutureTPM - Future Proofing the Connected World: A Quantum-Resistant Trusted Platform Module

Introduction:

FutureTPM will provide a new generation of TPM-based solutions, incorporating robust and formally verified QR cryptographic primitives.

BPR4GDPR – Business Process Re-engineering and functional toolkit for GDPR compliance

Introduction:

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy.

The BPR4GDPR project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 innovation programme under grant agreement No.787149 (Innovation Action) and coordinated by CAS SOFTWARE AG.

Reinforcing Cyber Security in the EU: Building Coordinated Security, Confidence and Capability in the Cyber Domain

With 315 million Europeans using the internet each day, the provision of critical services and the functioning of a modern economy are now entirely dependent upon the robustness and safety of cyberspace and its infrastructure. Cyber security attacks are a growing source of threat and concern, while also representing a growing economic opportunity for Europe, with the market predicted to be worth over $100 Billion by 2018 (European Commission). Moreover, cyber attacks in the EU are constantly growing in both their frequency (quintuplicate between 2013 and 2017) and sophistication.
