    AVL Research Networking Day 2019, Graz

    IoT4CPS is an Austrian research project with a focus on Connected and Automated Mobility and Industry 4.0. The project is funded for 3 years (Dec 2017 – Nov 2020) and its aim is to develop guidelines, methods and tools for secure and safe IoT-based applications for connected vehicles. Through IoT4CPS, we are collaborating with AVL‘s […]

  • Digital Twins, Part 2: The Analysis of Public Datasets

    Digital Twins, Part 2: The Analysis of Public Datasets

    Based on a description of the business case presented in part 1, this post continues with a selection of relevant public datasets to enhance data repositories dealing with lifecycle phases of connected cars. Specifically, we look at those datasets that cover both Automotive Manufacturing and Connected Cars, and address two perspectives: multi-stakeholder and cybersecurity & […]

  • In Search for an Effective Cybersecurity Architecture for Smart Manufacturing Platform Ecosystems

    In Search for an Effective Cybersecurity Architecture for Smart Manufacturing Platform Ecosystems

    One of our current research projects called the EFPF (European Connected Factory Platform for Agile Manufacturing), www.efpf.org, is about digital manufacturing ecosystems to be established through a federation of cloud-based manufacturing platforms. Prior to entering the EFPF federation, each of the platforms was designed to provide their own security and privacy controls. Platform federation brings […]

  • Cybersecurity Requirements for Multi-Sided Platforms

    Cybersecurity Requirements for Multi-Sided Platforms

    Capturing cybersecurity requirements when designing multi-sided platforms can be quite a lot of work and it usually needs to be done in a limited timeframe. One of my research papers, presented in March 2018 at the I-ESA conference, in Berlin, reports on the requirements elicitation in the context of a B2B platform that is being […]
