GLACIER - seventh consortium meeting successfully held at the end of May
In the now seventh consortium meeting of the GLACIER project, which had to be held virtually again for security reasons at the end of May, the partners once again coordinated all work packages, presented the project status and discussed the tasks still open until the end of the project. In addition, the project website and planned publications at conferences, in trade journals or trade fairs were discussed. The project is now entering its final phase and will probably end successfully at the end of September this year without any significant open work.
Currently, residual work from the first work packages could be finally completed with a time delay. Due to the current development of a prototype, in which all partners are involved, further remaining work from the work packages AP2-AP5 is on the agenda. As a result, the project is lagging somewhat behind the usual schedule, but is still within the non-critical range. Currently, the integration of the development work is being driven forward with great commitment. First internal test runs have already been carried out at DECOIT® GmbH to test the efficiency of the anomaly detection algorithm of the Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts and to give feedback for further development. In parallel, there is interest in a pilot test, which is pending in work package AP6 and which is to be carried out at the associated partner hanseWasser® Bremen GmbH. This is intended to get the fully integrated GLACIER components running in a common architecture and to collect data for a practical test. In the integration tests, however, the project is also still lagging slightly behind the original specifications. A detailed evaluation of the developments is to take place in the final pilot test. It is also planned to complete the documentation of the work.
DECOIT® GmbH is currently working at full speed on the integration and bug-fixing of the overall GLACIER architecture. In the process, not all components could be tested sufficiently and the integration of the static analysis has not yet taken place. In parallel, Elastic-SIEM is being investigated and an integration is being tested. This will then allow different anomaly detection algorithms to be compared. Meanwhile, Hannover University of Applied Sciences has further developed its analysis engine and is ready for integration testing. However, since the test coverage is still relatively low, some bugs have to be expected in the beginning, which will be ironed out during the test phase. Furthermore, a PostgreSQL connector for the analysis engine has been developed and the visualization of an anomaly tree is available in the first version. The partner rt-solutions GmbH, on the other hand, has implemented the first attack tools in its laboratory environment. However, all scenarios have not yet been integrated. However, a dynamically generated network topology and automated attack scripts have already been completed.
Further project planning now envisages that integration testing should be completed by mid-July. After that, a field test is planned at the beginning of August at the associated partner hanseWasser Bremen GmbH, which will initially only serve to record data in order to train the anomaly detection. In September, the second step will be the autonomous pilot test, which should be completed by the middle of the month so that an evaluation can still be carried out within the project. From October, when the project is officially considered to be finished, the final reports will then be written accordingly. The last consortium meeting is planned for September to initiate the final work with it.
