Current Projects

  • CyberHunt
    CyberHunt NFR

    The CyberHunt projects focuses in CTI (Cyber Threat Intelligence) by developing highly innovative cybersecurity technologies that can sense, detect, structure, exchange and analyse CTI data. In turn, this can be used for automated decision making and orchestration to disrupt and outmaneuver adversarial attacks in cyber-relevant time. The aim is to develop solutions which will radically strengthen defenses and resilience against cyberthreats targeted at critical infrastructures, including assets, systems, and networks, that are vital to the society. The project is active during 2020-2024.

    The project is managed by Prof. Audun Jøsang at the Informatics Department at UiO. CyberHunt brings together complementary expertise from the partner institutions NUPI, OsloMet, mnemonic, CISCO and Edinburgh Napier University, and involves multiple PhDs, PostDocs and Master's students.

    CyberHunt is funded by the IKTPLUSS program of the Norwegian Research Council (NFR).

    The IKTPLUSS program is NFR's major research initiative within the ICT disciplines, with primary focus on ICT for security and health.

    Oslo Analytics is funded INTPART program of the Norwegian Research Council (NFR).

    INTPART focuses on establishing strong collaboration in terms of exchange and joint research initiatives between Norwegian and European/international partners.

  • COINS
    COINS NFR

    COINS (Research School of Computer and Information Security) integrates Norwegian research groups in Information Security to a larger entity, e.g. by integrating the course portfolio for research school members, building stronger relationships between doctoral students in the network, establishing more incentives to excel, and increasing student mobility through access to a larger network. The network is active during 2013 - 2018 with funding from the NFR.


 

 


 

Past Projects

  • SWAN
    SWAN NFR

    The goal of the SWAN project is to develop robust multimodal biometric authentication solutions. The project is active during 2016 - 2018.

    The project was managed bu NTNU-Gjøvik in collaboration with UiO, Morpho (France), IDIAP (Switzerland), BDB (Germany) and Zwipe (Norway).

    SWAN was funded by the IKTPLUSS program of the Norwegian Research Council (NFR).

    The IKTPLUSS program is NFR's major research initiative within the ICT disciplines, with primary focus on ICT for security and health.

  • ACT: Semi-Automated Cyber Threat Intelligence
    ACT NFR

    The ACT project addresses the challenges for cybersecurity companies and their systems to reveal the nature of attacks and stop them as early as possible by developing novel products and services for digital threat intelligence to detect more attacks and enable quick response against both ongoing and future threats and attacks. The project will also enable efficient exchange of intelligence data with both governmental institutions and private companies. The project is planned to be active during 2016 - 2019.

    The project is managed by mnemonic, and is funded under the Industry PhD program of the Norwegian Research Council (NFR).

  • ABRI
    ABRI ARL Open Campus

    Advanced Belief Reasoning in Intelligence (ABRI) focuses on theoretical studies and development of software tools for intelligence analysis that take advantage of subjective logic's ability to handle uncertain beliefs. A typical aspect of intelligence analysis is that it must deal with uncertain evidence and incomplete knowledge. Subjective logic can explicitly handle uncertainty, which enables analysts to create more realistic reasoning models that produce more informative conclusions than is otherwise possible with traditional Bayesian approaches. ABRI is funded by the US Army Research Lab's Open Campus Research Program The project is active during 2014 - 2019.

    Project partners: IFI, US Army Research Labs and the University of Padova.
