Project Overview

SERSCIS aims to develop adaptive service-oriented technologies for creating, monitoring and managing secure, resilient and highly available information systems underpinning critical infrastructures.

The ambition is to develop technologies for such information systems to enable them to survive faults, mismanagement and cyber-attack, and automatically adapt to dynamically changing requirements arising from the direct impact from natural events, accidents and malicious attacks.

SERSCIS will use a service-oriented architecture to make interconnected ICT systems more manageable, allowing dynamic adaptation to manage changing situations, and counter the risk amplification effect of interconnectedness.

To control the resulting ICT components, the project will develop:

  • tools and ontologies for modelling critical infrastructure, including ICT components, in order to capture their requirements, behaviour and compositional nature
  • system dependability metrics and agreements, and dynamic governance mechanisms, including dynamic trust management
  • system composition mechanisms, allowing dynamic discovery and interconnection of component services
  • decision support tools that exploit underlying semantic models to provide situational awareness of system status and threats
