The Choice of Architecture Methodology in the Design of the CyberTrust System

CGI, October 2020 At the time when the project CyberTrust is progressing towards the implementation of the pilots, it’s timely to talk about the architecture methodology chosen by the consortium of the project CyberTrust which is the backbone of the technological platform has been built. Important interim validated outcome is that the CyberTrust architecture is robust and resilient. The conclusive outcomes will be reported when the pilots are completed. Architecture in the digital world is not just a good idea;…

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…

Blockchain solutions and chain-of-custody

Sotirios Brotsis, Nicholas Kolokotronis, 5 July 2020 The technological evolution, which is derived from the development of the Internet of things (IoT) is accompanied by new forms of cyber-attacks that exploit the heterogeneity of IoT ecosystems and the existence of vulnerabilities in IoT devices. Thus, the detection of attacked IoT devices, as well as, the accumulation and maintenance of forensic evidences emerge as areas of immense priority [1, 4]. Most of the IoT devices are highly resource-constrained, while their computational…

COVID-19: Amid a “pandemic” of cyber-attacks

A Cyber-Trust Brief by Olga Gkotsopoulou, VUB Even though companies have become more resilient over time, studies show that cyber-attacks have evolved and have become even more frequent [i]. This is more so true, especially in times of emergency and disaster at a national or global level. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak which led in an increase in the number of people staying at home and the turn into digital services, a significant upsurge has been noted in…

Threat sharing methods: comparative analysis

Organizations worldwide, from governments to public and corporate enterprises, are under constant threat by evolving cyber-attacks. The fact that there are literally billions of IoT devices globally, most of which are readily accessible and easily hacked, allows threat actors to use them as the cyber-weapon delivery system of choice in many today’s cyber-attacks, e.g., from botnet-building for launching distributed denial of service attacks, to malware spreading and spamming. The sooner an organization knows about emerging threats, the more efficiently cyber-defense…
