WSAN4CIP - Securing Tomorrow's Critical Infrastructures

The goal of WSAN4CIP is to advance the technology of Wireless Sensor and Actuator Networks (WSANs) beyond the current state of the art, in order to improve the protection of Critical Infrastructures (CIs)

By advancing WSAN technology, the project will contribute to networked information and process control systems which are more secure and resilient. The distributed nature of WSANs enables them to survive malicious attacks as well as accidents and operational failures. It makes them dependable in critical situations, when information is needed to prevent further damage to CIs.

WSAN4CIP project will:

  • Enhance the reliability of critical infrastructures by providing surveillance data for the management of the CI
  • Increase the dependability of critical infrastructures security, by providing self-healing and dependability modules for the WSAN
  • Provide a dependability engineering methodology and appropriate tool support
  • Demonstrate the feasibility of the project’s technical approach by using energy generation and distribution as an example of a critical infrastructure.

WSAN4CIP is a Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP), which is partly funded by the European Commission in the ICT security area of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) under Objective 1.7 "Critical Infrastructure Protection"
