“How many FIDO protocols are needed? Analysing the technology,security and compliance” Journal Paper

The aerOS journal paper entitled “How many FIDO protocols are needed? Analysing the technology,security and compliance” is  now available. The paper was submitted by InQBit team.
To overcome the security vulnerabilities caused by weak passwords, thus bridge the gap between user friendly interfaces and advanced security features, the Fast IDentity Online (FIDO) alliance defined a number of authentication protocols. The existing literature leverages all versions of the FIDO protocols, without indicating the reasons behind the choice of each individual FIDO protocol (i.e., U2F, UAF, FIDO2). Inevitably, the question ”which protocol is more suitable per case” becomes significant. To provide an answer to the previous question, this paper performs a thorough comparative analysis on the different protocol specifications and their technological and market support, to identify whether any protocol has become obsolete. To reach to a conclusion, the proposed approach i) explores the existing literature, ii) analyses the specifications released by the FIDO Alliance, elaborating on the security characteristics, iii) inspects the technical adoption by the industry and iv) investigates the compliance of the FIDO with standards, regulations and other identity verification protocols. Our results indicate that FIDO2 is the most widely adopted solution; however, U2F remains supported by numerous web services as a two-factor authentication (2FA) choice, while UAF continues to be utilized in mobile clients seeking to offer the Transaction Confirmation feature.

metaOS Workshop

aerOS Project attended the metaOS workshop by EUCloudEdgeIoT in EU Commission’s premises! It was a very fruitful event, where all the metaOS projects participated and had the exchange to exchange ideas and activities.

“Meta Operating Systems: Innovating the CEI landscape” Webinar

aerOS project co-organized the “Meta Operating Systems: Innovating the CEI landscape” webinar. This webinar offered a unique opportunity to explore state-of-the-art projects that are redefining the boundaries of edge-to-cloud computing through virtualized, secure, and efficient orchestration mechanisms.

aerOS project at EuCNC 2024 & 6G Summit

The aerOS paper entitled “A Proof of Concept Implementation of an AI-assisted User-Centric 6G Network”, has been accepted at EuCNC 2024 & 6G Summit, Antwerp, Belgium 2024.

The 2024 EuCNC & 6G Summit builds on putting together two successful conferences in the area of telecommunications: EuCNC (European Conference on Networks and Communications), supported by the European Commission, and the 6G Summit, originated from the 6G Flagship programme in Finland, one of the very first in its area. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc), the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) and the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP), and focuses on all aspects of telecommunications ranging from 5G deployment and mobile IoT to 6G exploration and future communications systems and networks, including experimentation and testbeds, and applications and services. It brings together cutting-edge research and world-renown industries and businesses, globally attracting in the last years more than 900 delegates from more than 40 countries all over the world, to present and discuss the latest results, and an exhibition with more than 50 exhibitors, for demonstrating the technology developed in the area, namely within research projects from EU R&I programmes.

The conference has a not-for-profit organisation, hence, registration fees are as low as possible and all surplus will be made available in grants. Best Papers and Booth Awards will be granted. Accepted and presented papers for regular sessions will be published in the Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore and other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

aerOS Pilot 1 Scenario 1: Green manufacturing and C02 footprint monitoring

This video presents Scenario 1 from aerOS pilot 1: Data-driven cognitive production lines. It is part of the aerOS project, which aims to create an IoT-Edge-Cloud continuum.
Scenario 1 takes place at the Swiss Smart Factory, a dynamic hub within the Switzerland Innovation Park Biel/Bienne, dedicated to fostering Industry 4.0 through its test and demonstration platform.
