Cyber and Network Security

Security is of paramout importance for Internet of Things, Industrial Internet of Things, and cloud-based architectures. In this context, the Telematics Lab achieved consolidated research skills useful to define and implement distributed security architectures offering, also in federated and multi-authority scenarios, decoupled authentication and privacy-oriented authorization (i.e., Attribute-Based Access Control with ephemeral user identities) services, lightweight key agreement mechanisms, blockchain-enabled solutions, and flexible architectures providing dynamic and adaptable confidentiality requirements.


Distributed communication infrastructures requires new paradigms aiming to fulfill the main security issues:

    • Mutual trustworthiness.
    • Identification and mitigation of advanced threats.
    • Identity and access control management.
    • Propagation of sensitive data need to be addressed.

This prove the importance of designing and implementing heterogeneous security services for distributed systems.
