Develop an innovative cyber-threat intelligence gathering, detection, and mitigation

innovative cyber-threat platform

Our Test Cases
CyberTrust will be carrying our two main pilots

OTE is the largest telecommunications company in the Greek market, providing broadband and fixed line telephony services to Greek and international companies, consumers and public sector bodies. The OTE Group – comprising OTE S.A. and its subsidiaries – also offers mobile telephony services, Internet access, digital communications, leased line services and high-speed data communication.

OTE has the role of the end-user, who will integrate the resulting security platform on premise.

Communications Provider

Primary Pilot

The Hellenic Cyber-Crime Division with its HQs established in Athens, since 2004, when the unit was upgraded to a full department of the Hellenic Police, it has resolved over 6,000 cases of fraud, extortion and child abuse, while several resolved cases were only partially committed in Greece.

KEMEA and the Hellenic Cyber-Crime Division, using the data produced by the first pilot, will test the platform regarding its capabilities w.r.t. (e) forensic evidence collection.

Hellenic Police

Secondary Pilot
What are the platform aspects...
Zero-day vulnerabilities, threat sharing, network monitoring, blockchain, forensic evidence, device tampering, DDoS attacks, detection and mitigation, reputation systems, data protection and privacy.

Statistical & Signature based detection

Real time DDOS and RoQ attack detection Deep packet inspection Protocol analysis Anomaly detection

IoT Device Tampering Detection & Remediation

Autonomous health monitoring of IoT devices Tampering attempts Abnormal payload and traffic

Cyber-threat Intelligence Gathering & Sharing System

Novel approach: Deep and machine learning techniques Game-theoretic framework to provide recommendations for IoT service providers based on the information regarding vulnerabilities Game-theory and machine learning to create patterns and predict the evolution of malwares and botnets Intelligence gathering from: Clearnet Deep and dark web Intelligence sharing to: Organisations SOC teams Security experts LEAs CERTs

Cyber-Trust Blockchain

Provide trusted transaction processing and coordination between IoT devices Ensure security: Identity Data Communication Safeguarding critical files and software binaries Minimize the damage caused by tampered devices and malware as well as single points of failure Collection and storing of forensic evidence

IoT device Profiling

Develop a privacy-preserving IoT device (vulnerability) profiling framework, so that any communications with high risk devices are subject to more thorough analysis.

Self-adaptive Virtual 3D environment

The flat representation (on the screen) may provide synthetic information about the status of the IoT network that can be used for the monitoring phase. It will use BODY OCULUS (or similar viewers) and body movement(e.g. hand gestures) to navigate and inspect the network. Through the VR mode it will be possible to cover more network area per analyst and see more in less time; it will also allow to see panels of related information surrounding the operator in a…

The importance of planning in data representation processes

ΜΑΤΗΕΜΑ The world we live in is increasingly driven by data: real-time information, updates, notifications have become an integral part of our daily life to such an extent that it is no longer possible to do without them. Accessing and consuming this data has become progressively more and more important, and this has led to a progressive increase in the data available, so much so that it is impressive to compare the volume of data to which it was possible…

The CYBERTRUST testbed, short implementation overview

OTE, February 2021 Testbeds were always important, as all new services and products always need to be tested thoroughly, especially the ones that operate in complex environments with many prospective users, although this is not always the case. Additionally, proper testing environment and procedure can help avoid later hardships. Nevertheless, this is the case with most of the research projects at EU, where the validity of a project’s outputs are checked and verified. As the pilots are progressing, we can…

Cyber-Trust: Pilot Evaluation strategy and road ahead

To address the major challenges of securing the IoT ecosystem from cyber threats, the Cyber-Trust project has developed a revolutionary framework that will first identify, then analyse, and next mitigate these threats. To achieve this, the Cyber-Trust project conducts research in the following main cyber-security areas: develop state of the Art (SOTA) cyber security tools identify cyber-attack and mitigate their consequence use of distributed ledger technologies The Cyber-Trust project has developed an innovative platform based on end user specifications that…

Cyber Security Challenges during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Gueltoum Bendiab, Stavros Shiaeles, Gohar Sargsyan The COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus pandemic, was an unprecedented event that altered the lives of billions of people globally and greatly increased the risk of cyber-attacks. The pandemic pushed organisations to adopt remote working method and forced employees to work from their homes, which bring new security risks. Due to this new working model, personnel computing devices have been extensively utilised for work purposes. Video conferencing tools have become the primary environment…

The ever-evolving IoT landscape: Blessing or Curse?

The ever-evolving IoT landscape: Blessing or Curse? Vasiliki-Georgia Bilali, Antonia Kardara, Dimitrios Kavallieros, George Kokkinis IoT landscape is ever-evolving, influenced mutually (or both) from technological and social needs. IoT applications are evolving as the technological services and products are updated and different industry tendencies and policies are applied. This perpetual evolution emerges from the need to automate, facilitate, and enhance daily routines and operational processes. The long-term goal is to provide technological innovation to users/experts and operational innovation in targeted…
