As digitisation becomes a business priority for many organisations in Europe and around the world, the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will generate huge opportunities for key industries like manufacturing, oil and gas, agriculture, mining and transportation. IIoT is bringing machines, analytics, and people to form a network of industrial devices connected by communications technologies. Machine-to-machine communication, however, increases the risk of cyberattacks.
AERAS aims to develop a realistic and rapidly adjustable cyber range platform for systems and organisations in the critical healthcare sector, to effectively prepare stakeholders with different types of responsibility and levels of expertise in defending high-risk, critical cyber-systems and organizations against advanced, known and new cyber-attacks, and reduce their security risks.
The EU-funded 5GZORRO project (Zero-touch security and trust for ubiquitous computing and connectivity in 5G networks) will develop these envisaged solutions for zero-touch service, network and security management in multi-stakeholder environments (ubiquitous), making use of Smart contracts based on Distributed Ledgers Technologies to implement required business agility.
The project ELIoT Pro (Easy& Lightweight IoT Protector) an end-to-end cybersecurity solution for IoT networks. For H2M authentication in IoT environments the solution eliminates passwords – nothing for hackers to steal. Our core technology is based on the One-Time Password (OTP) user authentication protocol, mathematically proven unbreakable. For M2M in IoT environments ELIoT Pro ensures secure device-to-device authentication and data security using a lightweight encryption protocol.
The main goal of AF-Cyber is to investigate and analyse the problem of attributing cyber attacks. We plan to construct a logic-based framework for performing attribution of cyber attacks, based on cyber forensics evidence, social science approaches and an intelligent methodology for dynamic evidence collection. AF-Cyber will relieve part of the cyberattacks problem, by supporting forensics investigation and attribution with logical-based frameworks representation, reasoning and supporting tools.
E-CORRIDOR aims at providing a flexible, secure and privacy-aware framework allowing confidential, distributed and edge enabled security services, as threat analysis and prevention as well as privacy-aware seamless access mechanism in multi-modal transport systems.
Critical-Chains is a 3-year research and innovation programme funded with the support of the European Commission Horizon 2020 Programme with a focus on IOT & Blockchain-Enabled Security Framework for Fintech Integrated New Generation Cyber-Physical Systems to support the Financial Sector. The Critical-Chains Consortium represents a strong chemistry of relevant expertise and an inclusive set of stakeholders comprising end-users (customers), CERTS, the financial sector (Banks & CCPs) and the Insurance sector.
SWForum.eu aims to create a self-sustainable online forum that facilitates and encourages both researchers and practitioners as well as projects in software, digital infrastructure and cybersecurity to create intersections of expertise and a multidisciplinary approach to research and innovation. This forum seeks to set in place the European research roadmap and offer cross-fertilisation of competencies to all other research and innovation areas.
