UBITECH publishes an e-print on Oblivious Remote Attestation for Secure Service Function Chains at arXiv

In collaboration with Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the European Research Center of Huawei Technologies in Germany, UBITECH publishes a preprint entitled “BLINDTRUST: Oblivious Remote Attestation for Secure Service Function Chains” at the arXiv open-access repository of electronic preprints and postprints (known as e-prints) approved for posting after moderation. Dr Thanassis Giannetsos, Head of UBITECH’s Digital Security and Trusted Computing Research Group, and his co-authors present a lightweight dynamic configuration integrity verification that enables inter and intra-device attestation without disclosing any configuration information and can be applied on both resource-constrained edge devices and cloud services. Their goal is to enhance run-time software integrity and trustworthiness with a scalable solution eliminating the need for federated infrastructure trust.

Successful first review for the FARCROSS H2020 Innovation Action

The first review of the FARCROSS H2020 Innovation Action research project with external reviewers and the Project Officer from the European Commission side took place (virtually) on June 16, 2021, wherein the FARCROSS consortium successfully presented the results of the work of the project during the first 18 months of the project. The FARCROSS project aims to connect major stakeholders of the energy value chain and demonstrate integrated hardware and software solutions that will facilitate the “unlocking” of the resources for the cross-border electricity flows and regional cooperation. The project will promote state-of-the-art technologies to enhance the exploitation/capacity/efficiency of transmission grid assets, either on the generation or the transmission level.

UBITECH undertakes the technical coordination of the 5G-IANA Innovation Action on 5G Intelligent Automotive Network Applications

UBITECH participates at the virtual kick-off meeting hosted by ICCS (June 16, 2021) of the 5G-IANA Innovation Action, officially started on June 1st, 2021. The project is funded by the European Commission and the EU Member States under the Horizon 2020 Programme (Grant Agreement No. 101016427) and spans on the period June 2021 – May 2024. The 5G-IANA project aims at providing an open 5G experimentation platform, on top of which third party experimenters (i.e., SMEs) in the Automotive-related 5G-PPP vertical will have the opportunity to develop, deploy and test their services.

Successful first review for the PolicyCLOUD H2020 Innovation Action

The first review of the PolicyCLOUD H2020-870675 project (https://policycloud.eu/) was successfully held by the European Commission on the 19th of May 2021. The PolicyCLOUD project aims to harness the potential of digitisation, big data and cloud technologies to improve the modelling, creation and implementation of policy. The project addresses challenges faced by many businesses and public administrations for improving how they make policy decisions by accessing and using data. The PolicyCLOUD consortium successfully presented the project results, where UBITECH’s Computing Systems, Software and Services research group displayed the work done on the Data Governance model, as well as on the overall Protection and Privacy Enforcement. More specifically, UBITECH’s role is to fulfil the need to acquire and manage the data that will be used by PolicyCLOUD, as well as to provide the tools that can be used to control data in the different phases of the data lifecycle. The reviewers and the PO were very satisfied with the overall results of the project and provided some really interesting feedback and recommendations for future work.
