The NECOMA project addresses objective (c), Cybersecurity for improved resilience against cyber threats, of the ICT-EU Japan Coordinated call FP7-ICT-2013-EU-Japan. It aims at providing new means to understand cyberthreats and to mitigate their effect on infrastructure and endpoints. This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 608533.
The ICT environments of critical infrastructures (such as energy distribution systems) are composed of a large number of systems connected to form a complex system of systems. Recent initiatives to upgrade power systems into smart grids target an even tighter integration with information technologies to enable the integration of renewable energy sources, local and bulk generation and demand response. To fully estimate the security of an enterprise’s system architecture, a large number of issues must be considered.
CYBERWISER.eu pragmatically addresses the urgent need to count on highly-skilled, multi-disciplined cybersecurity professionals, given the increasingly aggressive cyber-landscape that Europe and the world is facing.
The CS-AWARE project approach will be a big step towards automation of cyber incident detection, classification and visualisation, and will be based on mature big data analysis tools and methodologies provided by consortium partners.
This project will provide solutions to the increasing demand of cybersecurity by developing cryptographic protocols optimizing confidentiality, integrity and availability of data, while preserving privacy for persons and entities. We propose the following general objectives:
The main ambition of the Horizon 2020 project CREDENTIAL is to realize an end-to-end secure and privacy-preserving platform for managing and storing users' digital identity information, ranging from authentication credentials over medical reports to tax data or similar.
