EXUS security research and innovation activities focus on fight against terrorism and organised crime, the protection of the external European maritime and land borders, critical infrastructure protection, civil crisis management and cybersecurity resilience.
EXUS’ vision towards a Secure Society aligns with the strategic research roadmap of the European Commission, as this was depicted in FP7 and is extended into Horizon 2020. See below some of our most recent innovation projects in the area of security focusing on:
From Real-world Identities to Privacy-Preserving and Attribute-Based Credentials for Device-Centric Access Control
The main idea behind ReCRED is to design and implement mechanisms that anchor all access control (AC) needs to mobile devices that users habitually use and carry.
Inspiring Citizens Participation for Enhanced Community Policing Actions
Community policing allows the police and the community to work together in new ways to solve problems of crime, disorder and safety, contributing to improving the quality of life for everyone in that community. INSPEC2T develops a sustainable framework for community policing that effectively addresses and promotes seamless collaboration between police and community.
IN-PREP will develop and integrate novel tools to enhance the Preparedness phase of transboundary crisis management through scenario building and response planning.
Its main technological objective is to develop a metasystem that will be implemented and tested in realistic conditions to assess the effectiveness of the present framework and mechanisms to train for the unexpected. Since existing systems that support the organisations (governmental and non-governmental) are not only diverse but also very basic due to limited and fragmented budgets, IN-PREP proposes a state-of-the-art system that will overcome these limitations. This new platform will be designed with interoperability in mind, providing capabilities to exchange data in trans-organisation and transnational modes.
Radars for long distance maritime surveillance and search and rescue operations
EU trade, transport, tourism and economic development are directly dependent on open and safe seas and oceans. EU's maritime borders are widely spread including various topologies from open sea to semi-enclosed cabins with islands and islets. This poses great challenges that affect securing maritime border areas.
Secure and Trusted Paradigm for Interoperable eHealth Services
KONFIDO advances the state of the art of eHealth technology with respect to four key dimensions of digital security, namely: data preservation, data access and modification, data exchange, and interoperability and compliance.
The data intensive target sector selected for the DataBio project is the Data-Driven Bioeconomy, focusing in production of best possible raw materials from agriculture, forestry and fishery/aquaculture for the bioeconomy industry to produce food, energy and biomaterials taking into account also various responsibility and sustainability issues.
