The protection of information systems and the data they transmit (Smart City, SmartGrids, Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, Connected Health, Internet of Things, BigData, Cloud, etc.) requires complex choices to be made between ease of use, the cost of security, safety of operation, the respect of constantly evolving digital rights and understanding and forecasting the market and its players. The development of the cybersecurity market, one of the plans selected by the New Industrial France Committee (NFI), needs progress to be made in systems of systems engineering.
The EIC project therefore aims to create an experimental and technical cybersecurity platform called CHESS (Cybersecurity Hardening Environment for Systems of Systems) which will allow assessments to be made of the combination of cybersecurity technologies through innovative use cases in the field of SmartGrids, the Factory of the Future, Connected and Autonomous Transport and the new services of the Internet of Things.
The human, political and economic elements cannot be dissociated from the technologies designed to protect these new interconnected information systems. The EIC project also conducts concerted and coherent research in the economic and legal fields. This involves, for example, anticipating the ergonomics that will be accepted in the security functions of the new smart systems.
The project aims to:
A new typology of threats will be studied using a Systems of Systems approach:
New concepts and methods will be developed for the operational management of cybersecurity:
Tools will be developed and evaluated:
New avenues will be explored:
Innovative modelling work on the economics of cyber-security will be carried out according to two complementary focus areas:
The legal and regulatory work will focus on essential operators in six complementary fields:
Doctoral thesis supported by the project
SMEs and integrators: cyber-security solutions and integrated packages; innovative security products and software
Large users / Essential operators: evaluation of choice of architecture and security solutions; new-generation operational security centres; new services linked to cyber-security (insurance, etc.)
