Vulnerability and Risk Analysis Methods and Application in Large Scale Development of Secure Systems
Software products are building blocks of today’s connected society, and design
and implementation of resilient software products is one of the challenging
areas for software vendors. It is specially challenging to comply to cyber
security standards and legislations where it is expected that cyber security
risks are well understood and addressed.
In a recent PhD thesis at IDA, Shanai Ardi addressed some of these challenges faced by software vendors and presented two approaches to reduce the risk of introducing security weaknesses to software products during the software life cycle. The first approach is a technically sustainable software security process to develop a deep understanding of software vulnerabilities and their causes and how to improve software development processes by deploying security activities. The second approach is a security risk assessment method introduced to the requirements engineering phase to identify security risks in functional requirements at a low level of abstraction. A case study spanning four years describes how this approach is transferred form theoretical research results to regular use in a large enterprise.
LiU Innovation prize for the entrepreneurial teacher of the year
Aseel Berglund has been awarded as "Linköping's entrepreneurial teachers 2020"
by LiU Innovation with the motivation:
This year's laureate is a frontier rider who moves between academia and industry. Aseel Berglund contributes to an entrepreneurial culture at Linköping University, both as inspiration for teaching colleagues and for students where she integrates utilization, entrepreneurship and innovation both as a researcher and teacher, where she has - together with colleagues - created new courses that really engage students.
Safer shipping with AI
Magnus Bång, KMACS/HCS and Jonas Lundberg, ITN, are together with
"Sjöfartsverket" in the project AutoMon performing research on AI methods for
monitoring sea traffic. Their goal is to increase traffic safety - in the
Swedish waters - by analysing ship movements in real time to identify potential
incidents and unsafe traffic behaviour.
