Titolo URANIUM – Unified Risk Assessment Negotiation via Interoperability Using Multi-sensor data
Finanziatore European Commission – DGJFS
Bando Prevention Preparedness and Consequence Management of Terrorism and other Security related Risks CIPS Grant Action 2013 (HOME/2013/CIPS/AG 2013)
Descrizione In this project we propose to study a new Situation Assesment approach in which interdependency model of Critical Infrastructures, whose output is the computation of the risk level for, is fed by several different sources of data, such as alarms directly collected by SCADA systems (e.g., faults), alarms generated by low-level sensor fusion on continous systems able to estimate the state of a system, alarms generated by single sensors (e.g. video cameras), and software agents able to generate alarms using Complex Event Processing (CEP) on multisensor data able to recognize complex sequences of events.The objectives of URANIUM project are:1. Stimulating, promoting and supporting the development of methodologies for the protection of CI, in particular risk assessment methodologies;2. Stimulating, promoting and supporting risk assessment on Critical Infrastructure (CI), in order to upgrade security.
Keywords Risk assessment, Interdependencies modelling.

Titolo LEONE – From global measurements to local management
Finanziatore EU
Bando FP7-ICT-2011-8
Descrizione  The Leone project is an FP7 STREP targeting “Future Networks”, which addresses “Novel Internet architectures, management and operation frameworks”.  The main goal is to research and develop an innovative network management framework that has two major novelties:  (i) it is focused on Quality of Experience: probes sited alongside end users measure performance and functionality to websites and test servers, both local and distant; (ii) it integrates multi-dimensional information: it combines measurements made by probes in the local ISP, probes in other ISPs, control plane information etc.  These two novelties enable network management to focus on improving the user’s experience of the Internet in a world of highly distributed and increasingly meshed applications.
Keywords Network management, distributed systems, visualization, probe, Quality of Experience, Future Networks.

Titolo FACIES – online identification of Failure and Attack on interdependent Critical InfrastructurES
Finanziatore European Commission – DGJFS
Bando Prevention Preparedness and Consequence Management of Terrorism and other Security related Risks CIPS Grant Action 2011
Descrizione The interdependence among critical infrastructure is now a reality. Interdependency becomes evident when a loss or a failure in an infrastructure generates repercussions and cascade effects on other infrastructures, and not always links are obvious and well-known. Since 90s infrastructures make use of SCADA systems, enabling the control and supervision of large plants and buildings. These SCADA systems are vulnerable to possible deliberate and malicious intrusions, known in literature as cyber attacks. The FACIES project aims both at identifying methodologies and metrics for the protection of infrastructure from cyber attacks, and determining possible countermeasures to these vulnerabilities.
Keywords Cybersecurity, CIP, Risk Prediciton, Early Warning, Interdependencies modelling.

Titolo CockpitCI – Cybersecurity on SCADA: risk prediction, analysis and reaction tools for Critical Infrastructures
Finanziatore EU
Bando FP7-SEC-2011.2.5-1 Cyber attacks against critical infrastructures – Capability Project
Descrizione CockpitCI project aims to improve the resilience and the dependability of CIs through the design and the implementation of the CockpitCI Alerting System that improves the MICIE alerting system developed within the MICIE Project, providing to CI operators an efficient tool to support them: (i) in the prevention of cyber attacks, and (ii) in the implementation of consequence containment strategies in case of attack.

Titolo REFIRE – REFerence implementation of interoperable Indoor location and communication system for first REsponders
Finanziatore European Commission – DGJFS
Bando Prevention Preparedness and Consequence Management of Terrorism and other Security related Risks CIPS Grant Action 2010
Descrizione REFIRE wants to integrate the results of previous R&D projects on deep indoor localization and industrial solutions to offer a solution ready to the market, which will pave the way for a day-to-day use of effective location and communication services for indoor and deep-indoor emergencies. In a nutshell, REFIRE is project aimed at tailoring exiting capabilities to a specific package and at integrating them in a reference implementation. Such reference implementation will be developed around a non-proprietary standard for data and equipment interfaces, so that future interoperability of devices manufactured by any vendor across Europe is ensured. The proof-of-concept implementation will be validated as living validation of the standards and concepts in real trials. In parallel, a first industrial set of prototypes will be developed and tests, so that the validity of the protocols set out by the project will be demonstrated. The validation of both the reference implementation and the pre-industrial prototypes in complex trials will further demonstrate such points, eventually boosting an early adoption of integrated tools and devices at European level.

Finanziatore EU VII PQ
Bando FP7-ICT-SEC-2007.1.7 – INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGIES
Descrizione The MICIE project, being in line with EU initiative to establish a Critical Infrastructure Warning Information Network (CIWIN), aimed to design and implement a so-called “MICIE alerting system” able to identify, in real time, the level of possible threats induced on a given CI by “undesired” events happened in such CI and/or other interdependent CIs. In particular, whenever such events occur, the MICIE alerting system supports the CI operators providing them with a real time risk level.
