Adaptive Network Filtering of DDoS Cyber Attacks

01/01/2017 to 31/12/2020

The aim of the project is to develop a modular system to protect against DDoS cyber attacks that present a current threat. The proposed system addresses the shortcomings of commercially affordable solutions, the possibility of sharing protection for multiple users, modularity, redundancy and, in particular, the possibility of linearly increasing filtering capacity. The major benefit of the project will be a drastic reduction in cybercrime by extending protection against DDoS for a wide range of end-users.

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.
