CeRICT (http://www.cerict.it/) is a research consortium founded in 2005 as a no-profit organization to foster the cooperation of Italian computer scientists and engineers in nation-wide and international projects in the area of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). It currently comprises eight partners, and precisely: universities (among which the University of Naples Parthenope), the Consorzio Interuniversitario Nazionale per l’Informatica (CINI), Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), and the Pascale Foundation.
The Research Team which will be contributing to this proposal is the Fault and Intrusion Tolerant Networked SystemS (FITNESS) Research Group (http://www.fitnesslab.eu/), which consists of researchers who are currently at the University of Naples Parthenope. These researchers have been actively involved in several EU-funded projects.
Role in the project
CeRICT will be in charge of coordinating the research work related to Intrusion Detection mechanisms and cyber-attack detection methods. It will also participate in the design and integration of the overall platform. Finally, CeRICT will contribute to the development of the validation scenarios, the evaluation methodology, and the actual validation of project results.
