UBITECH undertakes the technical coordination of the CONNECT Research and Innovation Action on CCAM trust and resilience

UBITECH hosts, in Athens, Greece, the kick-off meeting (September 22-23, 2022) of the CONNECT Research and Innovation Action, officially started on September 1st, 2022. The project is funded by European Commission under Horizon Europe Programme (Grant Agreement No. 101069688) and spans on the period September 2022 – August 2025. CONNECT addresses the convergence of security and safety in CCAM by assessing dynamic trust relationships and defining a trust reasoning framework based on which involved entities can establish trust for cooperatively executing safety-critical functions. This will enable both a) cyber-secure data sharing between data sources in the CCAM ecosystem that had no or insufficient pre-existing trust relationship, and b) outsourcing tasks to the MEC and cloud in a trustworthy way.

UBITECH successfully concluded the DOOR cascading grant project from NGI eSSIF-LAB

UBITECH successfully concluded the DOOR project (Hardware Roots of Trust as an Enabler of Trustworthiness in Digital Transactions) that empowers participating entities in the ESSIF-Framework to establish trust by providing strong verifiable evidence and assurances on the origin and integrity of the presented verifiable credentials. DOOR achieves this goal by building a trusted layer between interacting parties that is based on strong cryptographic privacy-preserving tools. In this way, DOOR can enable the handling of VCs requiring higher level of assurances locally at the holder’s wallet.
