CERCES - Center for Resilient Critical Infrastructures

CERCES responds to the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency’s (MSBs) intention to finance a program of research on information security in the industrial information and control systems area. The center's research is organized into four main activities that focus on security in embedded systems, wireless communication, communication and computing infrastructures, and control of cyber-physical systems.

RICS - Research Centre on Resilient Information and Control Systems

RICS will increase the competence in the area of ICT security for  critical infrastructures through research and education related to this domain. The research is carried out within three interdependent areas:

  • Data analysis and emulation
  • Risk and vulnerability analysis using attack modelling
  • Real-time detection of adverse events and anomalies

CLAS - Cyber-safe learning control system

The advances in ICT have led to a dramatic increase in the number of deployed devices that can communicate, sense, and actuate. Such devices and adjoining computing infrastructures enable a plethora of new applications, but they rely on open systems and networks, which suffer from potential vulnerabilities.

aSSIsT - Safe Software for the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT), connecting large numbers of small embedded devices to the internet, is currently being deployed in critical society infrastructures, factories, hospitals, smart buildings, and so on. In this situation, security concerns must be taken very seriously.

TrustFull - Reliable full stack software system

A typical modern application stack involves a large number of untrusted, subsidiary third-party services, even for security critical information flows. A graphical user interface, for instance, has a large attack surface involving devices, networks, operating systems, and a range of middleware, most of which is essentially untrustworthy and beyond user scrutiny. To address this problem, reducing the attack surface is essential.

Secure software updates for the smart city

New software vulnerabilities are discovered each day, rendering deployed devices insecure and exposed to attacks. As the number of connected devices is rapidly increasing, and attacks become easier to mount and more sophisticated in nature, devices and systems must support robust and secure means of updating software.

SEC4FACTORY - Cyber Security for Next Generation Factory

The purpose of the SEC4FACTORY project is to design and analyze security solutions for the next generation factories, allowing access control and secure communication, device and system life-cycle management, and privacy conscious data analysis in the cloud.

Octopi - Safe Programming for the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) conceives a future where “things” are interconnected by means of suitable information and communication technologies. Unfortunately, recent events have demonstrated the high vulnerability of IoT. This situation calls for immediate action: most European industries will move to IoT by 2020, where the ability of Swedish industry to confront this shift will determine its competitiveness in the near future.

LifeSec - Do not chop my body!

The number of people with implanted devices is increasing rapidly. In the future more and more people will have multiple implants that must be networked. We have recently shown that the human body’s adipose can be used for radio frequency (RF) communication. By enabling higher data rates than conventional in-body communication methods, our approach makes novel applications such as brain-to-machine interfaces possible.

WebSec - Security in web-driven systems

Our society relies on the web to support the economic, governmental, and military infrastructure. Billions of devices from printers to smart TVs and cars routinely run web servers and clients, forming a heterogeneous Web of Things. Web security is thus critical for Cybersecurity and Information Security at large. The project WebSec: Securing Web-driven Systems sets out to develop a principled security platform for the web. WebSec is a unique opportunity to break away from temporary patches and short-term mitigations and tackle the challenge of web security at scale.

CYBERUK is the UK government’s flagship cyber security event. Hosted by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), it features world-class speakers, solutions and opportunities for interaction between the public and private sectors. You will be briefed on the evolving cyber threat and how we must respond as individuals and as a community to keep Britain safe in cyberspace.
