Sample Nationally Funded Projects

nSHIELD – nSHIELD is a project co-funded by the ARTEMIS JOINT UNDERTAKING (Sub-programme SP6) focused on the research of SPD (Security, Privacy, Dependability) in the context of Embedded Systems.The nSHIELD project is, at the same time, a complement and significant technology breakthrough of pSHIELD, a pilot project funded in ARTEMIS Call 2009 as the first investigation towards the realization of the SHIELD Architectural Framework for Security, Privacy and Dependability (SPD). The roadmap, already started in the pilot project, will bring to address SPD in the context of Embedded Systems (ESs) as “built in” rather than as “add-on” functionalities, proposing and perceiving with this strategy the first step toward SPD certification for future ES.

The purpose of the RADIR Project is to develop a security framework for detection of targeted cyber attacks, incident handling, and forensic analysis with a focus on critical infrastructures. This framework will be mainly based on special honey pots and heuristic anomaly detection algorithms, static and dynamic program analysis tools, techniques for anonymous information sharing for global incident handling, and tools for advanced forensic analysis.

The SecSES-EU activity has two objectives. First, it will implement securtiy and privacy related features for an energy box in a smart home gateway, which is the interface between a HAN/BAN and the external network. Second, the activity will implement attack detection schemes for targeted attacks against the IT infrastructures and for the software systems used in smart energy systems. Both host based and network based targeted attacks will be considered. The CrySyS Lab will use the security framework developed in the RADIR Project to the specific case of Smart Energy Systems, and it will implement a testbed and a prototype for honey pot based detection of targeted attacks on Smart Energy Systems.
