The objective of the project was to establish the CSCE as the enabler for collaborative cyber information sharing and analysis for the space and critical infrastructure sectors, developing enabling technologies supporting knowledge enhancement and information exchange specific to cyber-security with multiple aims:
In order to develop the envisioned cyber-security services, three technology enablers have been developed within the CSCE project:
The project faced multiple challenges, related to the three technological platform to be developed:
Each of the CSCE technological platforms developed within the CSCE project brings consistent improvements in the cyber security landscape:
Each of the CSCE technological platforms encompass a set of unique capabilities, the foundation of the services to be delivered as final goal for the CSCE project:
CIRP and SACDP leverage on a multi-tier software architecture, composed by a data tier, a back-end tier, a front-end tier and a client tier.
For CIRP, the required scalability is achieved with the usage of a micro services architecture based on Docker, allowing the platform to be deployed on multiple hardware appliances.
CITEF leverages a more complex architecture, since it is composed by a custom software layer (a multi-tier application leveraging the creation and organization of the virtual environments) and an infrastructure-as-a-service layer based on COTS software, managing the instantiation of the desired virtual environments.
The project started on August 2017 and concluded at the end of December 2019.
CSCE was mainly divided on two phases, with a set of reviews for each phase and for each technological platform (the three streams had different internal schedule, being CIRP the shortest and CITEF the longest):
The project has successfully concluded, with full acceptance of all the outputs from ESA.
Even if the Artes project has been concluded, the Cyber Security Centre of Excellence is fully active in ESA ESEC (Redu, Belgium) on providing the services enabled by the developed CIRP, CITEF and SACDP technologies:
