The heterogeneous, distributed, and dynamically evolving nature of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) based on Internet of Things (IoT) and virtualised cloud architectures introduces new and unexpected risks that cannot be solved by current state-of-the-art security solutions.
For this, new paradigms and methods are required in order i) to build security into the ICT system at the outset, ii) to adapt to changing security conditions, iii) to reduce the need to fix flaws after deploying the system, and iv) to provide the assurance that the ICT system is secure and trustworthy at all times.
ANASTACIA will thus develop a trustworthy-by-design security framework which will address all the phases of the ICT Systems Development Lifecycle (SDL) and will be able to take autonomous decisions through the use of new networking technologies such as Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) and intelligent and dynamic security enforcement and monitoring methodologies and tools.
The framework will dynamically orchestrate and deploy security policies and actions that can be instantiated on local agents. Thus, security will be enforced in different kinds of devices and heterogeneous networks, e.g., IoT- or SDN/NFV- based networks. The framework will be designed in full compliance to SDN/NFV standards as specified by ETSI NFV and OFN SDN, respectively, and will include:
A security development paradigm based on the compliance to security best practices and the use of the security components and enablers (to provide assisted security design, development and deployment cycles to assure security-by-design)
A suite of distributed trust and security components and enablers, able to dynamically orchestrate and deploy user security policies and risk-assessed resilient actions within complex and dynamic CPS and IoT architectures (online monitoring and testing techniques will allow more automated adaptation to mitigate new and unexpected security vulnerabilities)
A holistic Dynamic Security and Privacy Seal, combining security and privacy standards and real time monitoring and online testing (to provide quantitative and qualitative run-time evaluation of privacy risks and security levels, which can be easily understood and controlled by the final users)
The main objective of the ANASTACIA project is to conceive, develop and demonstrate a holistic solution enabling trust and security by-design for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) based on IoT and Cloud architectures.
All partners meet in Genoa to officially launch the project, share a common project vision and define
its scientific and technical roadmap.
Activities are proceeding: partners meet to assess the first ANASTACIA reference architecture, check advancements and plan the delivery of the first milestones and deliverables.
Our project is presented in the IoT Risk Management section (IoT Security & Privacy Track)
ANASTACIA is presented in the 2nd Workshop on User centric security, privacy and data governance in smart cities (USP4SC) session
Dense agenda for the 3rd plenary meeting - use cases, requirements and architecture are available and technical activities can be started accordingly
16+ EU funded projects presented their objectives and results and shared their implementation experiences. An important dissemination event that facilitated the discussion between partners, the knowledge exchange between different projects and also enabled future synergies and collaborations. ANASTACIA was represented by UBITECH, WP6 leader.
UBITECH (WP6 leader) represented our project in the workshop organized by the SAINT Project. SAINT is an EU H2020 project which examines the problem of failures in cyber-security using a multidisciplinary approach that goes beyond the purely technical viewpoint, by combining economic analysis with behavioral, societal and institutional views, targeting in new methodologies that will improve the cost-effectiveness of cyber-security.
Cyberwatching.eu is creating a catalogue of cyber security & privacy service offers from research projects and ANASTACIA’s Offer has been published too. This event was a great opportunity to give a lightning talk on our project during the break-out and networking sessions.
The 4th plenary meeting was kindly hosted by ATOS: the Consortium worked in particular on integration, use case implementation and architecture update.
The IoT Week gathered the community of stakeholders engaged in developing new Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and solutions. During the IoT Week 2018, the Euskalduna Conference Centre hosted prominent IoT experts, researchers, IoT focused companies, research centres, European research projects, start-ups and international organizations to meet, discuss and identify emerging trends and technologies that will impact the future.
A technical integration meeting was kindly hosted by UMU to work on integration of technical results in preparation of the first project review.
First official review for the ANASTACIA project with external reviewers and European Commission Project Officer.
The 5th plenary meeting was hosted by Montimage: the Consortium focused on the results of the first validation and evaluation phase and will launch the second development and integration cycle.
AALTO University welcomed the ANASTACIA Consortium in its premises to discuss about the project Key Innovations, related technical development and integration, with an eye on exploitation paths too.
Latest Internet of Things (IoT) technologies and solutions were showcased in the IoT Week. The ANASTACIA project was be there too with a dissemination booth to illustrate latest achievments.
Swiss ANASTACIA partners hosted the plenary meeting focused on integration and on planning of final evaluation and validation phase, launching the last semester of activities.
The ANASTACIA project was invited to meet the COMMUNITY OF USERS ON SECURE, SAFE, RESILIENT SOCIETIES during its 14th meeting in Brussels: latest results on the achievements of the addressed Key Innovations will be presented, with a look at the final integrated framework and contribution to EU policies in cyber-security & privacy
Partner UTRC will host the plenary meeting that will mostly close the integration activities and launch the final evaluation and validation phase from the organizational point of view.
The University of Murcia (Scientific Coordinator) will host the final plenary meeting, where technical integration of the ANASTACIA framework will be achieved to showcase the main cyber-security and privacy-preservation functionalities in the dedicated Campus testbed - a workshop with the research community and other stakeholders will be organized, together with an IAB meeting for a final overall validation and assessment before the Final Review
