2018-02-22 South Korea: Partners for Developing Integrated Analysis Platform Utilizing Cloud-Based Block Chain for Cyber-Attack Prevention and Threat Management of IoT Devices



Partners for Developing Integrated Analysis Platform Utilizing Cloud-Based Block Chain for Cyber-Attack Prevention and Threat Management of IoT Devices


A Korean SME specialized in IT security evaluation and cloud-based security solutions is preparing a project proposal under EUROSTARS2. The R&D project is about further developing and designing of the integrated analysis platform which could prevent and manage cyber-attack and attempts using block chain in cloud environment. A reliable and technological company, university, and a laboratory for cloud systems is welcomed to join for R&D collaboration.

With the rapid spread of smartphones and Wi-Fi, the provision of various services using the cloud system and the possibility of new cyber-attacks such as APT (Advanced Persistent Threat: a network attack in which an unauthorized person gains access to a network and stays there undetected for a long period of time) are increasing. Various IoT devices and sensors are used in industries and services, but many of these are not sufficiently protected from cyber-attacks and hacking. As a result, leakage, loss of data, and forgery and falsification of data occur, resulting in additional damage and threats to the service system. Thus, needs for new security solutions is rising.

The Korean company was founded in 2006 to support the IT security businesses that are trying to obtain the IT security evaluation and certification on the basis of the Common Criteria(CC), an international standard for computer security certification. Evaluation and certification by the CC are now considered as an essential part for an export of the IT security products. For the IT security companies who want to export their product, the company provides security evaluation service, consulting and a basic/advanced level of education on Common Criteria. The company also recently developed cloud-based security solution and cloud system vulnerability scanner.

The company would like to further expand their area of business by developing and designing of the integrated analysis platform which could prevent and manage cyber-attack and attempts using a block chain in cloud environment. A block chain is a continuously growing list of records, called blocks, which are linked and secured using cryptography. The solution, which will be jointly developed with a partner under Eurostar2 or Eureka, will be able to ensure stability of services and systems by detecting and preventing internal and external threats.long the annual schedule, the project will be following below progress overall:


1) Developing and sharing the role allocation and detail module for each participating company, focusing on project managers

2) After the development of the module, the overall management and integration of each module in the host company and implementation of platform

3) Integrated operational test and pilot service launch using analytics platform

4) Establishment of utilization strategy for joint commercialization

The company aims to join Eurostars 2 Project with the deadline of a call on September 2018.

EoI for the September call will be accepted only until August 20, 2018.
