Our project portfolio reflects our commitment to collaborative and multidisciplinary research.
The CONCORDIA project formed a dedicated consortium of international partners to integrate Europe’s excellent cybersecurity competencies into the network of expertise to build the European secure, resilient and trusted ecosystem. The purpose is to promote Europe's digital sovereignty, to help the EU retain and develop the cybersecurity technological and industrial capacities necessary to secure its Digital Single Market, boost security and improve quality of life.
CyberSec4Europe is a Horizon 2020 pilot project by a pan-European research-based consortium with 43 participants from 22 countries. It will test and demonstrate potential governance structures for the network of cybersecurity competence centers using the best practice examples from the expertise and experience of the participants, including concepts like CERN.
At the Faculty of Informatics, the project is led by the Centre for Research on Cryptography and Security (CRoCS) in collaboration with the Cybersecurity Laboratory. The research work carried out by our laboratory involves an open portable virtual lab environment for cybersecurity education and validation.
NC3 – National Cybersecurity Competence Centre
National Cybersecurity Competence Centre has been established in response to growing demands for practically applicable products and solutions for ensuring cybersecurity of critical and noncritical information infrastructures.
KYPOLAB – Research of New Technologies to Increase the Capabilities of Cybersecurity Experts
The goal of this project is to research methods and develop software for enhancing cybersecurity knowledge and skills. The software will enable designing and running a new format of hands-on training using cybersecurity games. Automation and adaptivity of the learning process within these games will individualize the training and increase the number of trainees. The results of the project will be used to improve the competencies of experts who are in charge of securing the Czech cyberspace.
AI-Dojo – Multiagent Testbed for Research and Testing of AI-driven Cybersecurity Technologies
AI-Dojo is a testbed for the research and development of cybersecurity technologies using artificial intelligence (AI). It allows to deploy, modify, and test solutions using AI and evaluate their behavior. AI-Dojo simulates and emulates real systems, allows building optimal attack and defense strategies, and analyzes the effects of AI misuse against IT infrastructure. AI-Dojo monitors and visualizes events within the testbed. It is possible to involve a human in the interactions as an attacker or defender and train the management of threats abusing AI or model the organization's cybersecurity processes. AI-Dojo contributes to a better understanding of AI technologies and finding ways to better secure conventional information systems against AI-based cyberattacks.
