About SANCUS Project

Aiming to integrate contemporary technologies for automated security validation and verification, dynamic risk assessment, AI/ML processing, security emulation and testing, with unique optimisation modelling.

Call: H2020-SU-ICT-2018-2020 (Cybersecurity)
Topic: SU-ICT-02-2020 | T0: September 1st 2020



To identify and classify the technical requirements and the EU SELP policy aspects for designing, developing and integrating the proposed system platform and the intended engines, mechanisms and tools


To design and implement methods of automated firmware security validation (FiV) and testing based on wide‐ranging pipeline of analysers and samplers for maximising the surface of vulnerability and risk discovery


To design and develop new method of automated code integrity verification (CiV) by combining taint, fuzzing and symbolic execution analysis for improving security assessment accuracy, efficiency and searching speed


To design and develop new method of automated network security validation and verification (SiD) focusing on open‐source network development environments based on Docker and Kubernetes technologies


To design and develop new network attack configuration and emulation tool (AcE) using state‐of‐the‐ art AI/ML techniques for emulating complex cyber‐attacks and generating traffic in container environments


To propose revolutionary MiU modelling of the IoT unit for expressing the trade‐off between cyber security, digital privacy and QoS reliability by means of final formulas based on fundamental mathematical theories


To design game implicit optimisation (GiO) approach for maximising the security‐vs‐privacy‐vs‐ reliability efficiency subject to the outcomes of Objectives #2‐#6 using effective duality‐free solution methods


To design and establish operational cloud‐native network testbed prototype platform that integrates the enabling 5G technologies and the engines, mechanisms, tools, solutions developed in Objectives #2 to #7


To test and demonstrate the effectiveness, efficiency and complexity of the developed system network and each of its engines, mechanisms and tools by performing thorough testing using specific use case scenarios


To communicate and disseminate the project outcomes, exploit business planning of the outcomes, and contribute specific project outcomes to relevant standardisation bodies
