In this project we continue our work on mutually complementing theoretical and practical aspects of information systems' security. The main directions of the project are 1. Secure Multiparty Computation, 2. Structured Risk Assessment of information and related systems, 3. Internet voting. Our work will result in much greater practicality of privacy-preserving computations also in areas where they are currently not considered at all, based on much-improved cryptographic protocols and ways of combining these. It will result in new and better, empirically verified methods for deriving the attack scenarios against, and measuring the security of information systems and designing secure systems on this basis. It will also result in different practical i-voting protocol sets that have formally verified security properties. The properties of each protocol are well-aligned with the expectations of the community that uses it.

Outcomes and key themes from ICT 2018 Session on Cybersecurity as key for a Digital Economy and Society

On 5 December 2018, the Digital Single Market of the European Commission sponsored a session on the topic of “Cybersecurity as key for a Digital Economy and Society”. The highly-popular session (over 90 attendees) took place on 5 December 2018 within the flagship ICT2018 Conference in Vienna, Austria.

Khalil Rouhana, Deputy Director General, EC – DG CNECT, kicked off the session with an overview of some of the most pressing issues of the day in cybersecurity:
