  • Contribution:
  • description:

    DIAMONDS will enable efficient and automated security testing methods of industrial relevance for highly secure systems in multiple domains (incl. e.g. banking, transport or telecommunication). As pointed out by the Software Engineering Institute, US, 2009: "The security of a software-intensive system is directly related to the quality of its software”. In particular, over 90% of software security incidents are caused by attackers exploiting known software defects. DIAMONDS addresses this increasing need for systematic security testing methods by developing techniques and tools that can efficiently be used to secure networked applications in different domains. Goals DIAMONDS will leverage systematic, model-based testing and monitoring approaches for security testing to enable highly secure systems by early testing and test automation. Advanced model-based security testing methods will allow the early identification of design vulnerabilities and efficient system/test design targeting security aspects. top Innovations DIAMONDS will introduce four main innovations in the field of security testing methods and technologies: 1. Advanced model-based security testing methods that combine different techniques to obtain improved results applicable to multi-domain security. 2. Development of autonomous testing techniques based on automatic monitoring techniques to improve resilience of dynamically evolving systems. 3. Pre-standardization work on multi-domain security test methodologies and test patterns allowing DIAMONDS to offer interoperable security test techniques and tools. 4. Open source platform for security test tool integration to provide a common platform, which provides the user a single user interface towards various test tools, as well as a single reporting interface to have concise report from the various tools. These innovations aim at building a pre-standard for model-based security testing targeting heterogeneous and distributed systems and services and represent the enabling technology necessary for the introduction of formal security testing in industry. top Expected Results The four main results of DIAMONDS will be: 1. Security Fault Models 2. Risk-driven Security Test Methology 3. Model-based Security Test Methodology 4. Security Test Patterns Catalogue

WG: Sensor Web

Project: RUBICON (Robotic UBIquitous COgnitive Network)

  • Funding: European FP7
  • Status: Active
  • Date: 0000-00-00 to 0000-00-00
  • Contribution: 2.3 Million
  • description:

    This project will create a self-learning, self-organizing, and goal-oriented robotic ecology, called RUBICON (Robotic UBIquitous COgnitive Network), where a robotic ecology is defined as a network of heterogeneous computational nodes interfaced with sensors, effectors and mobile robot devices. The nodes of a RUBICON ecology mutually support one another’s learning through the ongoing exchange of information. Enabling robots to seamlessly operate as part of such robotic ecologies is an important and extended challenge for robotics R&D and a key enabler for a range of advanced robotic applications. The specific requirements for RUBICON have been driven by the need to provide dedicated learning solutions yielding cheaper, more adaptive and more efficient configurations and coordination of robotic ecologies. In particular it is imperative to support open, dynamic, heterogeneous and computationally-constrained systems, in tandem to a wide range of services and end user applications. The research emphasis of the RUBICON project lies in the concept of self-learning for robotic ecologies. Specifically, the RUBICON project will investigate: • How all the participants in a RUBICON ecology (mobile robots, sensors and effectors) can cooperate in using their past experience to improve their performance by autonomously and proactively adjusting their behaviour in response to a changing environment. • How the system can act as a shared, open, and distributed memory and learning infrastructure by encoding and distributing intelligence across the ecology. Such a system will tolerate the removal of any of its participant elements (graceful degradation), while new participants will be able to automatically benefit from past experiences and abilities learnt within the system. • How to create a mutually self-learning system, in which the behaviours of the different participants will not only satisfy application objectives set for the whole ecology, but also validate the performances of the ecology and provide the feedback required for distributed learning. Within this project two memebers of the Sensor WEb group are represened namely those of University College Dublin (UCD) and the University of Pisa. The initial idea gemerminated from intial discussions between the sensor web members and thereafter UCD undertook the role of Coordinator with the University one of the partmers. A new partner to the Sensor Web group, the University of Ulster constituted a third partner within the consortium. The full consortium is as follows: University College Dublin (Coordinator) Universitá di Pisa Orebro University Robotnik Automation SSL Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche Fundación ROBOTIKER University of Ulster Pintail Ltd Fondazione Stella Maris

WG: Sensor Web

The Sensor Web Working Group has had a successful year. The highlight of this has been the securing of an FP7 project coordinated by Professor Gregory O'Hare the chair of the Sensor Web group. This project entitled RUBICON is situated at the confluence of the areas of Robotics and Wireless Sensor Networks. The project is of particularly important to the WG as it provides a funding vehicle within which three WG partners can collaborate on an on-going basis. The partners are those of University College Dublin (UCD), University of Pisa and the University of Ulster. 2010 also saw a failed joint bid that involved a collaboration between UCD and VTT. However the group looks forward to further joint bids and funded projects in 2011. The group will meet in Trondheim on 10th June 2011 during the ERCIM days in Trondheim. One of the activities that the Group are keen to establish in terms of visibility is an International Joint Conference on Sensor Web (IJCSW). The group are committed to trying to establish such a high profile flagship conference. In addition there is interest in establishing a Journal associated with the area.

WG: Data and Information Spaces

After the WG in Amsterdam Christos Papatheodorou; Athena Research Centre; Institute for the Management of Information Systems, Greece; has made a draft for future topics and cooperation in the WG (dated 21.12.2010) to be discussed further. I am currently contacting persons for being the new leader of the DIS WG.

WG: Grids, P2P and Services

CoreGRID was one of the first European Networks of Excellence funded by the sixth Framework Programme. CoreGRID brought together over 150 researchers from 42 partner institutes. The network started in 2004 and its original funding period ended 2008. Since then CoreGRID continued under the umbrella of an ERCIM working group. While CoreGRID gained significant international visibility in the Grid realm, there is no similar impact in the Cloud community. However, many (not all) of its members are very active in service-based computing and Clouds. This is quite natural as the research challenges mentioned above are shared in Grids and Clouds. Unfortunately, we see again a large fragmentation in the European research landscape. CoreGRID can play an important role to support such efforts. However, this will require a significant evolution in its research structure and membership. Despite the overlap in research questions, the scientific community for cloud research is not identical. It will require again a gathering of experts from different disciplines to achieve a similar successful network as CoreGRID constitutes for Grids. This year, we noticed a drop in the activities of the working group. This is due to the numerous funded projects in the same areas and some overlap with our activities (FP7 DEGISCO project, COST Action ComplexHPC: Open European Network for High-Performance Computing in Complex Environments, ...). However, the workshop during EuroPAR was again a success.

WG: Software Evolution

Since this year, 2010, Anthony Cleve has become a co-chair of the WG Software Evolution, because of his continued involvement and activity in the European software evolution community. Anthony Cleve won the IBM Belgium / F.R.S.-FNRS 2010 Award for the best PhD thesis in Computer Science and Applications on "Program Analysis and Transformation for Data-Intensive System Evolution" Our WG wiki contains more detailed information about our achievements, including a list of PhD theses obtained in 2010 on the topic of software evolution.

Activities of the Working Group in 2010 were restricted to exchange of information and invitation to contribute and take part in the reviewing process of conferences and workshop sessions organized by working group members.__The Working Group has currently no common project. Last Working Group meeting took place in summer 2009 in Paris. Thus no common publications could be reported for 2010.____The Group plans to discuss in more detail topics for closer cooperation, in particular, __-_Application of methods of data analysis for decision support,__-_model coupling over different scales and scientific domains (local to global, short term to climatic effects, physical/chemical models),__-_research and development of the necessary numerical and informatics supporting tools,__with the aim to create proposals for joined projects and contributions to scientific conferences and workshops.__Based on the results of this discussion a meeting will be scheduled for the end of this year.__

The annual meeting of the working group has been quite successful. It has attracted over 800 participants. A number of them has joint the working group. The non active specialized group on Computational clinical trials has been deleted and new one on Quantitative Finance has been added. The working group is organizing through with a specialozed group the meeting Computational and Financial Econometrics which is associated with the journal of Computational Statistics and Data Analysis. The Working Group had a number of exchange research visits among its members (too many in order to be listed).
