Start of "CyberSEAS" - Over 30 IT security solutions for critical infrastructures.
The EU-funded project CyberSEAS will deliver an open and scalable ecosystem of thirty customizable security solutions to enhance the resilience of value chains in energy systems.
The EU-funded project CyberSEAS will deliver an open and expandable ecosystem of thirty customizable security solutions to enhance the resilience of value chains in energy systems.
Within the framework of the project, which is supported by the European Union with 7.99 million euros, several pilot infrastructures and test infrastructures will be utilized to explore over 100 IT security scenarios. The consortium, composed of 29 partners and led by Engineering Ingegneria Informatica S.p.A, aims to improve the overall resilience of value chains in energy supply. Complex attacks on the increasingly deployed information technology in various energy supply actors will be analyzed, taking into account both existing systems and new technologies used by energy infrastructure operators and service providers (cloud, data storage, etc.). In addition to IT security, the privacy of existing and future IT solutions will also be examined.
The Fraunhofer Center Digital Energy, in collaboration with RWTH Aachen University, will contribute a laboratory focusing on the grid integration of decentralized energy generators and e-mobility. Through simulation and emulation, current and future challenges in the value chains of charging infrastructures and energy infrastructures regarding their IT security will be investigated.
Dr.-Ing. Markus Mirz, as a representative of the Fraunhofer Center Digital Energy, participated in the project's kickoff meeting.
