7SHIELD Pilot Demonstration within the ICE Cubes Services in Brussels Area, Belgium

13 December 2022

ICE Cubes control center

The 13th of December 2022, Space Applications Services  hosted the third and last demonstration of the 7SHIELD project.

The demonstration has the objective to evaluate the effectiveness of the innovative technologies and the robustness of the 7SHIELD platform and its modules as applied to the ICE Cubes service. The demonstration focused on cyber security scenarios. The 7SHIELD demonstration covered all the phases of the cyber security, including the prevention phase, the detection of attacks, their responses and mitigations. The demonstration scenario involved the latest ICE Cubes asset, the AI-BOX, an experiment cube deployed in the ISS to provide GPU and Machine Learning capabilities at the edge, onboard the ISS. This is a multi-tenant environment accessible by multiple end-users. The 7SHIELD project has demonstrated its secured execution environment at the edge, securing an AI-BOX engineering model, and demonstrated the overall improvements in the cyber security posture that can be brought to the ICE Cubes service, both at the edge in the ISS and for the core components of the ICE Cubes ground segment.

09:30 Arrival of the participants
10:00 Introduction of the ICE Cubes service and tour of the facilities
11:00 Scenario 1: Cyber Risks Prevention

The demonstration scenario focuses on the prevention phase, including risks assessment, cascading effect analyses applied to the ICE Cube service.

12:00 Lunch Break
13:00 Scenario 2: Detection and Prevention at the Edge

The demonstration scenario will involve the deployment of 7SHIELD detection and prevention module on an engineering model of latest ICE Cubes asset, the AI-BOX, an experiment cube deployed in the ISS. This is a multi-tenant environment accessible by multiple end-users, providing computation power for AI applications at the edge.


15:00 Scenario 3: DoS attack on the ICE Cubes external Telemetry server

The third scenario will simulate a malicious behavior of end-users attempting to disrupt the activity of the ICE Cubes ground segment through the execution of DoS attacks targeted on specific services. The scenario aim at demonstrate the cyber detection and mitigation tools of the 7SHIELD framework.


16:00 Conclusion

This will be the time for wrapping up the demonstration, including gathering feedback from partners and operators, Q&A and final words.
