Research areas

Research Institute for Electrical Engineering  INCDIE  ICPE-CA Bucharest has among the areas of activity Renewable electricity production and management including cryogenic applications, EMC tests, Interaction between electromagnetic radiation with matter including shielding effectiveness, HV tests and voltage/current impulse generators for specific applications. Besides the ones already mentioned there are related areas such as R&D for materials science, including tests: spectroscopy, interferometry and microscopy. We have also a research department of THz range with applications in both material characterization and electromagnetic radiation phenomena.

Comment

Frequently used in the range of THz is now frequencies between 0,2-10THz. For these ones electromagnetic radiation shows some specific features which apparently  are unfit for mobile communications:

  • sharp directivity
  • high absorption/reflections, i.e. high attenuation
  • successive re-reflection at the boundaries between media when skin depth is greater than the thickness of the slab (i.e. poor absorption or thin plates of electrically of view)

The project part proposed by  INCDIE ICPE-CA will deal with these last too issues.

So after Schelkunoff’s theory shielding effectiveness increase cvasi-exponential by frequency in Fresnel zone for electrically thick slab/screen. Consequently, its will be investigated in this frequencies range various materials such as: concrete  reinforced, wood, tiles, pottery and other building materials in order to obtain SE characteristics in THZ range.

Also, the project deal with re-reflection phenomenology and the capability of different materials and enclosures to generated standing waves.

Research areas

My research relevant for this call is related to the evolution of cooperation and trust, including restoratative mechanisms like forgiveness and apology. Check out a recent publication : http://www.nature.com/articles/srep10639

As the IoT will require to give up some control, it becomes essential to introduce mechanisms that ensure trust and to mitigate situations when trust is (accidentely or not) abused. The question we can answer is under which conditons trust can be sustained or rekindled.

Comment

In a number of projects we have performed various security tasks regarding high performance and distributed computing systems, storage systems, development of secure architectures and tools. Currently WCSS leads the security task in Polish National Grid Infrastructure. Our duties, besides work coordination, are to perform infrastructure and software security audits, active vulnerability monitoring, penetration tests, develop security policies and tools, provide incident response and digital forensics. WCSS acts as a Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) for Polish National Grid Initiative and is a member of European Grid Initiative CSIRT. WCSS security team is also involved in PONIER CERT (Polish National Research and Education Network CERT) and TERENA TF-CSIRT (Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association Task Force CSIRT). Our security team has identified a number of serious vulnerabilities in widely used Open Source and commercial software, for which we have received many CVE's.

WCSS also has long-term experience in Public Key Infrastructure engineering and managing, including development of specific polices and tools. We have developed and implemented several PKI systems for Polish Grid and NREN.

We also have an experience in developing and implementing security systems serving authenticaton, aurhorization, and intrusion detection.

Research areas

The IoTSec.no Initiative is the driver for the National Centre for Smart Grid Security in Norway.  19 partners have joined forces to bring research into an operational industrial context. The research addresses:

  • Semantic modelling and provability
  • Measurable Security, Privacy and Dependability 
  • Adaptive security

For more information, please visit IoTSec.no 

Comment

We have established the IoTSec Ecosystem and work together in a national context, including municipalities, data protection agency, research centres, academic partners, industry, and SMEs. We believe that lot's of our experience, "e.g. building the ecosystem for innovation based on security and privacy", can be applied for the specific coordination action, see: IoTSec.no/publications. We would suggest joining with two partners, the Norwegian Centre of Expertise on Smart Energy and the University of Oslo (UiO). But we can adopt according to the needs, see IoTSec.no/about
