Disruptive Cybersecurity for Cyber-physical Society
At Exalens, we have deep roots in research and innovation in AI-driven security solutions for networks and cyber-physical systems. Over the past five years, we have participated in over 15 international research projects, tackling complex security challenges across a wide range of emerging and digitally transforming industries (from Industry 4.0, 5G, Automotive to Maritime and Defence), all in support of our mission to enhance operational resilience and safety for the emerging equip cyber-physical society.
5G-CARMEN addresses these challenges harnessing the concept of “Mobility Corridors”. In 5G-CARMEN important European industries, academics and innovative SMEs commit to achieve world-wide impact by conducting extensive trials across an important (by people/goods traffic volumes) corridor, from Bologna to Munich, spanning 600 Km of roads, connecting three European regions (Bavaria, Tirol and Trentino/South-Tyrol) across three countries.
Cyberlens will be the main responsible for the design and development and integration of privacy, security, and data protection mechanisms that are necessary for delivering CCAM services in cross-border situations.
CARAMEL’s goal is to proactively address modern vehicle cybersecurity challenges applying advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques, and also to continuously seek methods to mitigate associated safety risks. In order to achieve a secure vehicle development process with explicit cybersecurity considerations, well established methodologies coming from the ICT sector are required, allowing to assess vulnerabilities and potential cyber attack impacts and considering the entire supply chain of operations. In order to address cybersecurity considerations for the already here autonomous and connected vehicles, well established methodologies coming from the ICT sector will be adopted, allowing to assess vulnerabilities and potential cyber attack impacts.
Cyberlens will lead the effort of eliciting the security and privacy requirements that will drive the implementation of the CARAMEL global security solution. Cyberlens will also assist the modelling of the threats affecting the cybersecurity posture of connected vehicles as well as the development of the hardware security modules of the CARAMEL anti-hacking device.
ISOLA project combines state-of-the-art technologies blended with novel solutions to enhance the Situational Awareness and support the assigned Ship Security Officer & Crew to the execution of their duties especially to the Ship Security Plan. The suggested system is contextually aligned and harmonised with the existing regulations. Constraints to integration will also be looked at with attention given to key architecture framework criteria: standardisation, interoperability, openness, flexibility, adaptability, ability to evolve, scalability, modularity, simplicity, usability, robustness, information management, decision support and mission effectiveness, and legacy integration. ISOLA develops, integrates, tests, deploys, demonstrates and validates a systematic and fully automated security approach by incorporating innovative technologies for sensing, monitoring, data fusion, alarming and reporting real-time during illegal incidents.
This will ensure high level of security among all the passengers of the ship and augmentation of the Ship Security Plan. The main objectives of ISOLA are: (i) to create strategies and methods in order to a ship to easily integrated solutions regarding passengers and crew safety in the existing ship systems; (ii) to propose innovative sensor and visual technologies to support security safety; (iii) to create a complex collaborative system for monitoring and detecting security incidents and events; (iv) to create early warning methods for the ship security crew to prevent security issues; (v) to collect incident evidences by exploiting the Augmented Reality; (vi) to allow easy engagement of different authorities in a ship related crisis; (vii) to model, classify and easily report a security event.
