Security expert initiative

Objective

A Secure Information Infrastructure is, after Widespread Availability of Broadband access, the second enabler of a broader access to Information Technology, as recognised by eEurope-2005 initiative. SEINIT, a two-year project, defines new security models and policies to address the new issues of the pervasive computing world.

They are implemented over IPv6 infrastructures to cover various business cases and assessed against real life scenarios. SEINIT develop a trusted and dependable security framework, ubiquitous, working across multiple devices and, heterogeneous networks, being organisation independent (inter-operable) and centred around an end-user. It introduces a security approach closer to real life, easy to use and flexible enough to adapt the complexity of the security mechanisms to the level of the risk faced. To information systems and network designers, SEINIT delivers new Security models to design innovative security architectures, the security policies addressing the existing and coming threats, and the components to build networks infrastructure.

To end users, SEINIT delivers guidelines and best practices manuals that facilitate the spreading of the technologic results and the acceptance of the new approach. These results are inputs to ENISA and other European or national initiatives to greatly improve the reach of the security concerns of eEurope-2005.
