CYBER-TRUST: Advanced Cyber-Threat Intelligence, Detection, and Mitigation Platform for a Trusted Internet of Things

Project: Research


The CYBER-TRUST project aims to develop an innovative cyber-threat intelligence gathering, detection, and mitigation platform, as well as, to perform high quality interdisciplinary research in key areas for introducing novel concepts and approaches to tackle the grand challenges towards securing the ecosystem of IoT devices. The high level project objectives, which summarize the specific challenges of the work programme are:
1. To create a new paradigm for the next generation cyber-security systems, especially suited for the IoT, that will greatly increase the capability of CIIs to counter threat actors and their methods.
2. To quickly detect and effectively respond to/mitigate sophisticated cyber-attacks by advancing the current state-of-the-art of numerous existing techniques and by introducing new ones.
3. To deliver advanced solutions for collecting forensic information from the defending systems in order to identify the attackers and further use it as evidence in court.
4. To minimize the impact on sensitive data protection and user’s privacy of the proposed tools and methods by addressing any issues during the design and the development phases.
