The goal of the LV-Pri20 project is to aid our ICT-driven lives, by “safeguarding the human right of privacy in the digital society”. Concretely, the main focus of LV-Pri20 is the formal and automatic analysis of privacy-preservation in today’s ICT. LV-Pri20 will focus on the prevalent wireless media, e.g., RF-identification protocols, remote car-unlocking, wearables, machine-to-machine communication in the Internet of Things (IoT)/ubiquitous computing, but it will not neglect wired environments (given their common cloud-connection).
Until now, research in efficient cryptographic protocols has typically been in two different directions. The first direction, and the major one, is to construct more efficient protocols and prove them secure, where efficiency is measured by the amount of communication sent, the number of heavy cryptographic operations carried out (e.g., exponentiations), and so on. The second direction is to take the state-of-the-art protocols and implement them while optimising the implementation based on systems concerns.
FIDELITY is a multi-disciplinary initiative which will analyse shortcomings and vulnerabilities in the whole ePassports life cycle and develop technical solutions and recommendations to overcome them. FIDELITY will demonstrate privacy enhanced solutions to:
ECRYPT-NET is a research network of six universities and two companies, as well as 7 associated companies, that intends to develop advanced cryptographic techniques for the Internet of Things and the Cloud and to create efficient and secure implementations of those techniques on a broad range of platforms.
The goal of ECRYPT-CSA is to strengthen European excellence in the area of cryptology and to build on the Network of Excellence ECRYPT and ECRYPT II to achieve a durable integration and structuring of the European cryptography community, involving academia, industry, law enforcement and defence agencies. The project has the following concrete objectives:
This Marie Curie career integration project considered the whole data release process, from the data owner to the data user. It laid out a set of principles for privacy tool design that highlight the requirements for interoperability, extensibility and scalability. The aim of the project was in Delivering Anonymization Practically, Privately, Effectively and Reusably (DAPPER). It produced published results under the following four themes:
The CockpitCI vision identifies the need to complement business awareness with cyber-security awareness in order to reach a superior level of awareness (global awareness) and increase the business continuity of the infrastructure.
The core intellectual aim of BIOSEC is to explore whether concerns about biodiversity protection and global security are becoming integrated, and if so, in what ways. It will do so via building new theoretical approaches for political ecology.
The ASAP FP7 research project developed a dynamic open-source execution framework for scalable data analytics. The underlying idea was that no single execution model is suitable for all types of tasks, and no single data model (and store) is suitable for all types of data. Complex analytical tasks over multi-engine environments therefore require integrated profiling, modeling, planning and scheduling functions.
The current IoT ecosystem is however fragmented: a series of vertical solutions exist today which, on the one hand, integrate connected objects within local environments using purpose-specific implementations and, on the other hand, connect smart spaces with a back-end cloud hosting dedicated often proprietary software components.
