analySis softwAre scheme of uNiform statistiCal sampling, aUdit and defence proceSses

Duration: 01/09/2020 - 31/08/2023

Total funding: EUR 4,999,731.00

Challenge & Objectives

The project involves 15 Partners from 8 European countries, and aims to design and develop an analySis softwAre scheme of uNiform statistiCal sampling, aUdit and defence proceSses (SANCUS – Roman god of trust). The main idea draws on formalising the logic of expressing (for the first time) the notions of cyber security and digital privacy by means of final formulas and fuse them into optimisation strategies to acquire the truly optimum defence recommendation in dynamic manner, i.e., with respect to the runtime changes of the telecommunications network environment. In this respect, SANCUS will dimension new inclusive Key Performance Indicator metric, namely, the security‐vs‐privacy‐vs‐reliability efficiency trade‐off, for measuring the system network cybersecurity and privacy performance explicitly, flexibly, automatically and agnostically. To realise the heterogeneity of the security and privacy levels across the system network and its supply chain, the proposed scheme resides on six efficient engines, which combine unique modelling of the Internet of Things units, cutting-edge methods for automated firmware and software validation and verification, and innovative Artificial Intelligence driven game techniques for the automated optimisation of the control and trust of digital services.

Extended evaluations of the project outcomes are also considered by means of developing contemporary network testbed prototype built on latest 5G and cloud‐native system setting and running three pilot use cases for examining the scheme performance across Firmware, Virtualisation and Management software layers. The SANCUS scheme will be delivered as integrated software suite and it is expected to revolutionise the European research and development efforts, in and out, the cybersecurity regime. All outcomes are planned to be audited and disseminated extensively.

Through SANCUS, eBOS aims to advance knowledge and reinforce understanding in cybersecurity, 5G and IoT technologies, extend the company’s R&D activities in these areas, and eventually apply the results in the company’s product portfolio for developing new innovative applications and solutions, while expanding the customer base.

eBOS will coordinate the project’s Dissemination and Communication activities, also undertaking the role of Dissemination and Communication Manager, in view of maximising the impact created by the project and enabling various target audiences to make use of the project’s results. Among other activities, eBOS will design, implement, and maintain the project’s website, prepare and publish press releases, social media posts, and web articles. In addition, eBOS will liaise with a wide range of interested stakeholders in Europe as a member of relevant pan-European organisations, alliances, and relevant European Technology Platforms (5G-PPP, ECSO, NESSI, NGI, etc.). eBOS will also participate in at least two industrial exhibitions and conferences to present the project and its innovation.

Furthermore, eBOS will also be involved in the following activities:

  • Identification and classification of security concerns in the Original Equipment Manufacturer supply chain;
  • Contributing to the SANCUS system demonstration, validation and integration;
  • Elaboration of a compelling evidence-based business plan for the SANCUS innovation.
