The CHIRON Project intends to combine state-of-the art technologies and innovative solutions into an integrated framework designed for an effective and person-centric health management along the complete care cycle. In this vision, CHIRON will address and harmonize the needs and interests of all the three main beneficiaries of the healthcare process, i.e. the citizens using the services, the medical professionals and the whole community. CHIRON will also position the citizens at the core of the whole healthcare cycle by considering them as â€śpersonsâ€ť with specificities and identities and will empower them to manage their own health. Then, CHIRON will enlarge the boundaries of healthcare by fostering a seamless integration of clinical setting, at home setting and mobile setting in a concept of a continuum of care. this will speed up the move from treatment of acute episodes to prevention. The project will provide the physicians with extensive support for treatment monitoring and management, timely decisions and appropriate actions in both the clinical and home environments.

The goal of the WSAN4CIP project is to advance the technology of Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks (WSANs) beyond the current state of the art, in order to make them applicable in the protection of Critical Infrastructures (CIs). The projects aims at demonstrating how wireless sensor and actuator networks can be used in CI protection by designing and deploying a sensor network based monitoring solution in an electrical grid in Portugal and a drinking water supply system in Germany. Within the project, the CrySyS Lab leads the work package on Dependable Networking, and develops secure routing, clustering, data aggregation, and transport protocols for sensor networks, as well as techniques to protect network coding based ditributed data storage schemes from pollution attacks.

EU-MESH: Enhanced, Ubiquitous, and Dependable Broadband Access using MESH Networks (EU FP7 STREP, 2008-2010)
The goal of EU-MESH was to develop, evaluate, and trial a system of software modules for building dependable multi-radio multi-channel mesh networks with QoS support and security features that provide ubiquitous and ultra-high speed broadband access. The CrySyS lab was the leader of the Security work package and developed fast user authentication protocols and a secure routing protocol with misbehaving router detection for mesh networks.

BIONETS took inspiration from biological systems and society to provide a fully integrated network and service environment that scales to large amounts of heterogeneous devices, and that is able to adapt and evolve in an autonomic way. We developed an incentive scheme to stimulate cooperation in such networks.

UbiSec&Sens aimed at developing a comprehensive security toolbox for medium and large scale WSNs, such that the components of this toolbox enable the rapid development of trusted sensor network applications. We developed secure routing protocols and resilient data aggregation schemes for sensor networks in this project.

SeVeCom addressed security of future vehicle communication networks, including both the security and privacy of inter-vehicular and vehicle-infrastructure communication. Its objective was to define the security architecture of such networks, as well as to propose a roadmap for progressive deployment of security functions in these networks.

Most of European critical activities rely on networked Information Systems, highly interconnected. The performance of such Information Systems could be jeopardized by incidents of various kinds. DESEREC aimed at developing countermeasures that respond both to attacks from the outside (e.g., aiming at Intrusion or Denial of Service), and to intrinsic failures of whatever origin (hardware failure, software fault, environment).

This project was project no. 2.3.1 of the Mobile Innovation Center (MIK), a unique R&D and technology innovation center in Hungary for future wireless communication technologies (3G/4G), which is based on university knowledge-base and existing industrial background. The general objective of the project was to study the relationship between mobility (users, devices, and services) and security.

The general objective of the MobilSEC/SoftSecure project was to develop new user authentication mechanisms that provide stronger security than the traditional username/password approach, but still do not require special hardware such as smart cards or other physical security tokens.
This project was concerned with security and privacy issues in ubiquitous computing environments. We addressed problems related to security in multi-hop wireless networks of embedded devices, security and privacy of RFID systems, security of personal smart tokens, and developed methods for the application of formal models and methods for security analysis of such systems.
The objective of the HUNEID project was the development of the specifications for the HUNgarian Electronic ID (HUNEID) card and its prototype implementation.
