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.
The main objective of the ANASTACIA project is to address these concerns by researching, developing and demonstrating a holistic solution enabling trust and security by-design for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) based on IoT and cloud architectures.
To this end, ANASTACIA will 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 will meet in Genoa to officially launch the project, share a common project vision and define
its scientific and technical roadmap.
The ANASTACIA project is about to start: along the way, we will publish here our main scientific and technical results.
