City-level Cyber-Secure Multimodal Transport Ecosystem

CitySCAPE H2020

EC funded project

The Challenge

The traditional security controls and security assurance arguments are becoming increasingly inefficient in supporting the emerging needs and applications of the multimodal transport systems, allowing threats and security incidents to disturb all dimensions of transportation. Therefore, the enormous potential of the multimodal ecosystem, namely a more efficient transportation, which lies on the extent to which it globally remains cyber-secure, is becoming vulnerable.

The Proposed Solution

CitySCAPE puts the multi-modal transport ecosystem under the microscope while also considering its interplay with related critical NIS Directive sectors (energy, banking). It introduces innovative risk analysis techniques and orchestrates a number of software solutions to realize an interoperable toolkit that seamlessly integrates to any multimodal transport system.

More specifically, the CitySCAPE software toolkit will:

  • Detect suspicious traffic-data values and identify persistent cyber-threats

  • Evaluate a cyber-attack’s impact in both technical and financial terms

  • Combine external knowledge and internally-observed activities to enhance the predictability of zero-day cyber-attacks

  • Instantiate a networked overlay to circulate informative notifications to CERT/CSIRT and support their interplay.

The proposed solution will be validated in regional-level pilots (in Tallinn, Estonia and Genoa, Italy) over a timely set of use-cases carefully selected by the end-users (i.e., transport operators). The findings will steer training sessions of expert/non-expert audience and shape the standardization contribution to security (labelling) protocols.
