Role in the project
In the proposed project, UPM will contribute to the tasks established as part of WP2, WP3, WP4, WP5, and WP6. UPM will contribute to the development of the project’s main concept, the establishment of its requirements, and the monitoring of the project targets in WP2. For WP3, UPM will contribute to the development of a tampering risk assessment strategy for DIAS in order to quantify the level of risk associated with tampering and to provide feedback to the other WP.

Furthermore, UPM will perform penetration testing and vulnerability assessment activities in order to identify security weaknesses in DIAS’s concept. For WP4, UPM will contribute to the tampering and security analysis, followed by the design of a tampering-resilient logical sensor-based metering infrastructure. Furthermore, UPM will contribute to the development of a secure communication infrastructure.

For WP5, UPM will contribute to the development of the two-tier tampering detection methodology by leveraging recent advances from the field of anomaly detection. Finally for WP6, UPM will contribute to the dissemination activities of the project at scientific conferences and within journal publications.
