3. SMOG-DEV: Security Mechanisms for Fog Computing - Advanced Security for Devices. MINECO, Ref. TIN2016-79095-C2-2-R (2017-2019)

2. CIBERDINE: Cybersecurity, Big Data, and Risks. CAM, Ref. S2013/ICE-3095 (2014-2018)

Cyberspace plays a key role in modern societies and economies. Over the last decade Internet has changed the way we interact with Public Administrations, has given rise to new business and entertainment models and influenced the way we communicate. However, as acknowledged by the National Security Strategy, cyberspace is nowadays an open and uncontrolled space. The complexity and globalization of cyberattacks has increased very significantly in the last years, causing an important breach between the capabilities of attackers and defenders. This project aims at strengthening our capabilities to prevent, detect, and respond to cyberattacks by developing techniques that improve situational awareness and cater for a dynamic threat management.

1. SPINY: Security and Privacy in the Internet-Of-You. MINECO, Ref. TIN2013-46469-R (2014-2016)

In the last few years, various intersecting technological advances have made it possible to develop reasonably powerful computers and sensors small enough to be embedded almost everywhere. This has translated into a proliferation of smart devices that can be carried in, on, and around the human body. In SPINY, we present a research program to address some of these challenges with four general goals. Firstly, we plan to explore security models, design principles, and architectures for the IoY that minimize risk exposure against realistic adversaries. Secondly, we will develop mechanisms to maintain the integrity of the network and the confidentiality of the information that travels about. Thirdly, we will investigate novel solutions to increase trustworthiness in apps and services for the IoY and to thwart attacks based on malicious code. Finally, we will develop smart models and tools that take a holistic approach to the security and privacy governance issues of the IoY, with particular emphasis on the definition and enforcement of usable, flexible, user-dependent and context-specific policies.
