  • Abstract: UniverSelf unites 17 partners with the aim of overcoming the growing management complexity of future networking systems, and to reduce the barriers that complexity and ossification pose to further growth. Univerself has been launched in October 2010 and is scheduled for four years.


  • Defi: PPP FI: Technology Foundation: Future Internet Core Platform

  • Instrument: Integrated Project (IP)

  • Duration: September 2011 - May 2014

  • Coordinator: Telefonica (Spain)

  • Others partners:Thales, SAP, Inria

  • Abstract: FI-WARE will deliver a novel service infrastructure, building upon elements (called Generic Enablers) which offer reusable and commonly shared functions making it easier to develop Future Internet Applications in multiple sectors. This infrastructure will bring significant and quantifiable improvements in the performance, reliability and production costs linked to Internet Applications ? building a true foundation for the Future Internet.

The key deliverables of FI-WARE will be an open architecture and a reference implementation of a novel service infrastructure, building upon generic and reusable building blocks developed in earlier research projects. We will demonstrate how this infrastructure supports emerging Future Internet (FI) services in multiple Usage Areas, and will exhibit significant and quantifiable improvements in the productivity, reliability and cost of service development and delivery, building a true foundation for the Future Internet.

The MADYNES contributions to the FI-WARE project are:

  • Sicslowfuzzer, a fuzzing framework for the Internet of Things, that allows to assess the robustness of IoT OSes and applications, networkwise. More specifically, the tool uses the Scapy library for packet manipulation, allows users to define interaction scenarios in XML and provides multiple mutation algorithms;

  • Flowoid, a netflow probe for Android-based devices, which also provides a netflow location template to convey location information of the device;

  • XOvaldi4Android, an OVAL interpreter for Android-based devices, that is able to retrieve OVAL definitions using a web service, use them to check the current status of the system, and publish a result, using a second web service;

  • coordination between the Security Work Package and the Inria teams involved in it. This included attending to weekly audio conferences, face to face meetings, and making sure deliverables and tasks were addressed in a timely manner.

Collaborations with Major European Organizations

  • Partner 1: Univeristy of Luxembourg (Luxembourg)

  • We have two ongoing PhD candidates with the SnT at Univeristy of Luxembourg. We do collaborate on Large Scale Monitoring for Security Management. Target services are: P2P Networks, Virtual Coordinates Systems and DNS Services.
