|Title||Electrical Power System’s Shield against complex incidents and extensive cyber and privacy attacks||Acronym||PHOENIX|
PHOENIX will realize 3 strategic goals:
- Strengthen EPES cybersecurity preparedness by employing a) “security by design” via novel
protective concepts for resilience, self-healing and accountability, and b) “security by innovation” via
adapting, upgrading, integrating and validating a number of TRL5 developments to TRL7-8.
- Coordinate EPES cyber incident discovery, response and recovery, contributing to the
implementation of the NIS Directive by developing and validating at national and pan-European level,
a novel fully decentralized near real-time synchronized information awareness exchange platform,
among authorized utilities, CSIRTs, ISACs, CERTs, NRAs and the strategic NIS cooperation group.
- Accelerate research and innovation in EPES cybersecurity by a novel prevent, detect and mitigate
DevSecOps mechanism, secure and privacy preserving federated Machine Learning (ML) algorithms
and definition of certification methodologies and procedures.
PHOENIX will involve real-world scenarios to validate the effectiveness of PHOENIX across 5 European Large Scale Pilots (LSP) in Italy, Germany, Slovenia, Greece and Romania involving the completeend-to-end generation, transmission, distribution and presumption value chain. Beyond the individual LSPs, cascading effects even to other critical infrastructures will be simulated and cross-border security and privacy sites will be tested and validated.
realization of NIS Directive is implemented via a cooperative, fully distributed I2SP platform.
