The main objective of the ANASTACIA project is to address cyber-security concerns by researching, developing and demonstrating
a holistic solution enabling trust and security by-design for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) based on IoT and Cloud architectures.
The heterogeneous, distributed, and dynamically evolving nature of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) based on Internet of Things (IoT) and virtualised cloud architectures introduces new and unexpected risks that cannot be solved by current state-of-the-art security solutions.
For this, new paradigms and methods are required in order to:
- build security into the ICT system at the outset,
- adapt to changing security conditions,
- reduce the need to fix flaws after deploying the system,
- provide the assurance that the ICT system is secure and trustworthy at all times.
ANASTACIA will thus develop a trustworthy-by-design security framework which will address all the phases of the ICT Systems Development Lifecycle (SDL) and will be able to take autonomous decisions through the use of new networking technologies such as Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) and intelligent and dynamic security enforcement and monitoring methodologies and tools.
