SERENITI: Cyber Security and Resilience of Networked Critical Infrastructures (NCI)

The project aims at elaborating novel methodologies for the design of security and resilience-aware ICT infrastructures for Networked Critical Infrastructures, e.g., water plants, oil and gas pipelines, power grid, and the emerging Smart Grid.

It addresses several research gaps by providing:

  • A new approach for designing more secure and resilient NCI. In particular the project will develop unique techniques to aid engineers in designing their networks according to a wide set of requirements.
  • A novel Distributed IDS (DIDS) that glues together existing cyber and physical IDS.
  • A novel approach for DIDS placement in NCI that takes into account security and resilience design requirements.
