The overall objective of the project is to explore all different cybersecurity dimensions of multimodal transport. These dimensions will drive a characterization of the cyber-threats in the ICT multimodal transport, extended to the close-by power and financial sector. Innovative software tools will be introduced to estimate the cyber-threats propagation in the system. CitySCAPE will introduce innovative risk analysis techniques and orchestrates a number of software solutions to realize an interoperable toolkit that seamlessly integrates to any multimodal transport system.
The specific objectives of the project are as follows:
The proposed solution will be validated in two regional-level pilots (in Tallinn, Estonia and Genoa, Italy) over a timely set of use-cases carefully selected by the end-users (i.e., transport operators). The CitySCAPE capability of collaborative threat investigation will immediately strengthen the CERTs/CSIRTs link to the transportation stakeholders while the CitySCAPE dedicated security assurance framework will gradually reinforce trust links between transport actors:
