SarDiNe - Network Security in Companies and Authorities Based on Software Defined Networking

01/01/2015 to 31/12/2018

Project Description:

The aim of the project SarDiNe is to fully exploit the advantages of virtualized network functions in terms of efficiency and flexibility while ensuring network and IT security.
In traditional networks, basic physical security is achieved through the physical separation of components, for example, by the separation of data and data streams. This level of security must be effectively modeled in virtualization concepts through software components. In the SarDiNe project, two different concepts ("Software Defined Networking" (SDN) and "Network Function Virtualization" (NFV)) are combined and additional aspects of IT and network security are taken into account.

In the technical implementation, for example, an additional level of manipulation-resistant control information for data streams is being developed in order to be able to offer the functionalities of a firewall as network-internal service.
In this way, various levels of security appropriate to the application can be offered within a virtualized system environment. As a result, an optimum of necessary security and available resources is achieved and the administrative burden is reduced.

Cyber Insurance and its Contribution to Cyber Risk Mitigation - Leiden March 25-29
25/03/2019 to 29/03/2019

The rise in both the scale and severity of recent cyberattacks demands new thinking about cybersecurity risk and the mitigation and transfer of that risk. Cyber insurance is one potential way to manage risk by transferring damage liability, but the cyber insurance market is immature and the understanding and actuarial knowledge of cyber-risk is currently underdeveloped.
