Cloud Computing and mobile applications are key drivers for innovation. However, mobile device limitations still hinder today’s mobile applications from reaching their full potential. The joint South-Korea and EU Horizon 2020 project BASMATI is developing an integrated brokerage platform that targets federated clouds and supports the dynamic needs of mobile applications and users.

In order to support knowledge extraction from data streams, we propose a visual platform for quickly identifying main features and for computing predictive models in real time. To this end, we have adapted state-of-the-art algorithms in stream learning and visualisation.

Recent years have seen a dramatic increase in damage caused by cyber-criminals. Although there are many IT security tools on the market, there is currently no way to test, compare and evaluate them without actually running them in real systems. The BÆSE testbed offers a solution to challenge and benchmark IT security solutions for dedicated network environments under attack conditions, without putting real systems in danger.

Behaviour-based security enables industrial control systems to address a wider range of risks than classical IT security, providing an integrated approach to detecting security attacks, dependability failures and violation of safety properties.

The objective of our project is to adapt and facilitate Information System (IS) security risk management in the telecommunications sector. To this end, we have developed: first, a model-based approach and a tool to support the adoption of IS security risk management by Luxembourg’s telecommunications service providers (TSPs); and second, a framework to analyse the data collected by  Luxembourg’s National Regulation Authority (NRA).

MUSA (MUlti-cloud Secure Applications) is an EU H2020 funded research project which is aimed at ensuring security in multi-cloud environments. The main goal of MUSA is to support the lifecycle of applications with strict security requirements over heterogenous cloud resources. MUSA will result in a security framework that includes security-by-design mechanisms as well as runtime security monitoring and enforcement to mitigate security incidents.
