Trustworthiness of ICT network is a key component of the future Internet society in societal, economic development as well as safe and secure qualitf of life of citizens. DEMONS project addresses the network monitoring challenge to safegaurd the data security and privacy information following the legal compliance. The project results will significantly enhance the ability to detect and respond to large scale threats while preserving citizens’ right to privacy. The project will demonstrate ICT trustworthiness of network infrastructure in a cooperative operational environment across several major network operators, with few real life scenarios. The project development activities will be based on the latest service oriented architecture and workflow process technologies. The project will be active in standardisation groups to promote the international acceptance and adoption of project results, besides dissemination activities.
DEMONS in its approach will 1)design a more scalable, flexible and autonomic monitoring infrastructure 2)exploit monitoring intelligence distributed inside programmable traffic probes and mediating devices 3)improve monitoring applications performance, effectiveness and ita capability (in detection, reporting and mitigation) 4) operating in compliance with the customers’ privacy rights, and 5) taking advantage of cross-domain cooperation mechanisms to permit improved defense againat global scale cooperative threats and operational failures.
* Decentralised, cooperative and privacy preserving monitoring system architecture
* Open source release of BLOCKMON , a modular system for flexible and high performance traffic monitoring and analysis
* Inter-domain exchange point interface for exchange of information against any threats and vulnerabilities without any impact on operator’s business intelligence
