Project Summary

PHOENIX aims to offer a cyber-shield armour to European Electrical Power and Energy System (EPES) infrastructure enabling cooperative detection of large scale, cyber-human security and privacy incidents and attacks, guarantee the continuity of operations and minimize cascading effects in the infrastructure itself, the environment, the citizens and the end-users at reasonable cost.

PHOENIX will realise 3 strategic goals:

(1) Strengthen EPES cybersecurity preparedness by employing security a) “by design” via novel protective concepts for resilience, survivability, self-healing and accountability, and b) “by innovation” via adapting, upgrading and integrating a number of TRL5 developments to TRL7-8 and validating them in real-live large scale pilots;

(2) Coordinate European EPES cyber incident discovery, response and recovery, contributing to the implementation of the NIS Directive by developing and validating at national Member States and pan-European level, a novel fully decentralized inter-DLTs/blockchain based near real-time synchronized cybersecurity information awareness platform, among authorized EPES stakeholders, utilities, CSIRTs, ISACs, CERTs, NRAs and the strategic NIS cooperation group;

(3) Accelerate research and innovation in EPES cybersecurity by a novel deploy, monitor, detect and mitigate DevSecOps mechanism, a secure gateway, privacy preserving federated Machine Learning algorithms and establishment of certification methodologies and procedures through a Netherlands-based Cybersecurity Certification Centre.

Singularlogic leads the integration and testing activities of the project, and actively participates in the design and implementation of a fully distributed platform to share incidents information and coordinate cyberattacks alarms at a pan-European level between EPEs stakeholders, Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs) and Cyber Emergency Response Teams (CERTs). Singularlogic also contributes to threat identificaiton and analysis and in project impact creation activities.
