DRFC invited UZH to CAMINO's 1st Experts Workshop entitled “Reshaping the European Security Research Agenda for 2016-2017” (ReESRA 2016-2017). The event took place September 18, 2014 in Bern, Switzerland.

The ReESRA 2016-2017 workshop provided multiple SMEs, industry, scientists, and end-users communities with a forum for the exchange of ReESRA 2016-12017 visions and challenges, as well as the elaboration of strategies to those ends. In particular, the goal of the workshop was to gather insights regarding Cyber Security in the field of Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) in Europe and beyond and to discuss further developments in methodology, technology, and foundations for the design and effective implementation of Cyber Security in CIP that enable the realization of Smart Critical Infrastructures and so Smart Cities. The outcome should help towards the clarification of the various interpre­tations, commonalities, and differences, thereby paving the way for a more structured and well founded approach to future CIP roadmaps and initiatives, including research and tech­nology, education and training, ecosystems, and standards. Representatives from aca­demia, industry and policy makers were invited to take part of this event and were forced to exchange experiences and idea.

UZH presented their experiences and solutions in the field of secure and efficient wireless sensor networks (SecureWSN) that are in a more general way part of external liaisons between the two EU projects SmartenIT and FLAMINGO. Workshop participants were highly interested in this topic, especially in the proposed light-weighted two-way authenti­cation solution and the ongoing mobile access control management approach. Further dis­­cus­sions about how to integrate this research in upcoming projects took place between representatives from DFRC, IMA, CBRNE Ltd., EIXOS, and Zanasi & Partners. They re­com­mended to UZH to continue this work and evaluate further standardization possibili­ties as well as by considering highly generalized and flexible solutions.
