New NWO grant cooperations with the Informatics Institute

The University of Amsterdam’s Systems and Network Engineering Lab at the Informatics Institute, with assistance of the Leibniz Center for Law, have recently been awarded several new grants from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The Leibniz Center and SNE already cooperate in the long-running SARNET project (1 PhD student and 1 Post-doc) on Internet Security. The projects will take place within the Informatics Institute, but with personnel involvement of the Leibniz Center for Law.

A round-up of the new NWO grants:

DL4LD or Data Logistics for Logistics Data: The proposed research (2 PhD students, 1 Post-doc) focuses on 1) the design and implementation of capabilities that are required for creating value-rich logistic information services and 2) creation of innovative solutions that allow stakeholders to agree on how data is stored, accessed, shared and transformed in a controllable, enforceable, accountable, auditable and goal-oriented fashion.

Secure Scalable Policy-Enforced Distributed Data Processing: The project (1 PhD student) combines big data, high performance computing and cryptology in multidisciplinary fundamental and applied research. The project aims to develop integrated secure, end-to-end trusted, scalable and future-proof solutions for the problem of policy-enforced distributed data sharing and processing across multiple logistic domains. This NWO ‘Big Data: Real Time ICT for Logistics’ grant is part of the Commit2Data initiative, a national public-private research-and innovation programme intended to to keep and strengthen the Dutch top 5 position in Big Data.

Distributed FAIR information systems to enable federated learning and reasoning: The project (1 Post-doc) aims to find solutions for constructing FAIR (Findable Accessible Interoperable Reusable) data services that allow competing organizations to share & analyse data for a common and agreed goal but not for any other purposes.

SARNET: NWO grant for Internet Security

The University of Amsterdam has been awarded a grant from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for the Security Autonomous Response NETworks project (SARNET). This project falls under the NWO Cyber Security programme, which seeks to increase the security of our digital society while at the same time addressing privacy concerns.

The SARNET project explores what is needed to provide an autonomous means of Internet security at the supra-company level. The research employs software-defined networking technology, with Internet provider networks and company networks working together on detection and defence. This means companies will be no longer be alone in their fight against cybercrime. When an attack is detected by a provider and/or company, protection will also be programmed at other companies and providers. This information technology allows SARNET to be jointly managed by Internet service providers and specialised companies.

The research is being conducted at the UvA, in the Informatics Institute, and involving the Leibniz Center for Law, while the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) and network manufacturer Ciena are working to put it into practice at Air France-KLM.

The SARNET grant is €680,000, of which €400,000 is funded by the NWO and the remainder by industrial partners KLM, CIENA and TNO.

Key assessment criteria were the scientific quality of the research proposal, the knowledge utilisation factor and the relevance of the research to the National Cyber Security Strategy (NCSRA-II). The NCSRA-II is part of the IT Roadmap of the government’s Top Sectors policy.

This research programme is part of the second investment round of the cyber security study. Financiers and initiators are the ministries of the Interior & Kingdom Relations, Defence, Economic Affairs, Finance, Infrastructure & the Environment and Security & Justice (coordinated by the Ministry of Economic Affairs), the Governing Board of the NWO and the NWO areas of Exact Sciences (EW), Social and Behavioural Sciences (MaGW), and the STW technology foundation.
