Partners from four European countries are participating in the project: Softeam (Technical coordinator) and Montimage EURL from France, Åbo Akademi University from Finland, Ikerlan S. Coop and Fagor Arrasate S. Coop. from Spain, and ABB AB and University of Mälardalen (Administrative Coordinator) from Sweden.
ABB is a company producing solutions for ports and cargo terminals that delivers automation and electrical systems for container and bulk cargo handling. ABB will bring its know-how and challenges related to developing control systems from functional to safety and security requirement engineering. ABB coordinate tasks related to the collection of use case requirements and evaluation of the developed VeriDevOps technologies. ABB will provide requirement data and its development environment consisting of the system object itself, whether it is software only or software and hardware and the automation framework.
IKERLAN will contribute to VeriDevOps with its expertise in security. It will participate in all security-related activities related to software development and operation phases. IKERLAN will work on the design and development of a Threat Oracle Engine, a tool for gathering vulnerabilities, exploits and threat detection for industrial components. IKERLAN will play an important role in the security evaluation of proposed VeriDevOps tools using the evaluation Cybersecurity Testbed that is part of the Basque CyberSecurity Center (BCSC) and the Basque Digital Innovation Hub (BDIH).
MONTIMAGE has a deep expertise in continuous risk analysis and relies on a set of software tools to detect Software/ Hardware related vulnerabilities at runtime (rule based detection as well as anomaly detection) and apply corrective actions to improve security levels of applications running in different environments. We will provide, in VeriDevOps, its Monitoring Framework (MMT) to introduce new AI/ ML techniques for the detection, mitigation and prevention of different cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities targeting the different sectors treated by the project. It will develop the concepts of continuous risk analysis, root cause analysis to obtain a security intelligent defence management that is able to handle end-to-end security in different environments (IoT, Cloud etc.).
