Growing threats and increasingly also failures due to complexity may compromise the security and resilience of network and service infrastructures. Applications and services require security of data handling and we need new security architectures and scalable and interoperable security policies for this. There is a need to guarantee end-to-end security in data communications and storage, including identity management and authentication.
Moreover, we need technology to enable network security monitoring and tracing and to assess the trustworthiness of infrastructures and services. It must ensure the protection of personal data and privacy and to properly assign liability and risks, together with the appropriate governance models needed to do so. Furthermore this is applied to the settings of Public Safety in general.
