The Social Computing Research Center (http://socialcomputing.eu) organized the summer school of the EU-funded Research Projects INCOGNITO: IdeNtity verifiCatiOn with privacy-preservinG credeNtIals for anonymous access To Online services (https://incognito.socialcomputing.eu) and SECONDO: a Security ECOnomics service platform for smart security investments and cyber insurance pricing in the beyond 2020 networking era (https://secondo-h2020.eu/).

Summer School Workshops:

  • “Innovation in Attribute-based Authentication” by INCOGNITO (6th of July 2023)
  • “Negotiation Skills for Research Projects and Project Management in Cybersecurity Summer School” by SECONDO (7th of July 2023).

The summer school took place on the 6th and 7th of July 2023 (Thursday and Friday), from 08:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. in the Cyprus University of Technology facilities and in the building Themistocleous (https://maps.app.goo.gl/G5SWCkREs36pe8Zr6) at Pefkios Georgiades Amphitheatre.

Many active and previous SECONDO secondees presented SECONDO aspects. In particular, Nikos Salamanos from CUT (previous SECONDO secondee) presented the “The landscape of arms trafficking on the Dark Web”, a research that completed with the  Dark Web crawler of the SECONDO project. Moreover, Vaios Bolgouras (active SECONDO secondee) presented the “Blockchain technology and the effects in global economy“; Blockchain is important pillar within the SECONDO ecosystem. Furthermore, Christos Seferiadis and Angelos-Marios Sideris (active SECONDO secondees) analysed the “Building the human firewall“; an approach that the SECONDO project via its modules promotes and finally, Michalis Takaronis (active SECONDO secondee) discussed the importance on the 0-day detection in a presentation entitled “CVE, Zero day detection and risk impact“; the identification is very important and has identified and highlighted by the SECONDO project.

The presentation were meaningful and the presenters had the chance to exchange research ideas to build their future research steps with the audience.
