MIgration TRend AnalySis (MiTrAs)

Due to the unstable political situation in crisis areas in the Middle East and Northern Africa, further migration movements to Europe are to be expected. In order to be able to assess these developments in the best possible way, it is necessary for the user to have new methods for monitoring, early detection and trend analysis of migration movements, based on the fusion of information from satellite images, open sources and social media from the North African region. The objectives are i) satellite image analysis, for the identification of groups of people and vehicles, ii) analysis of heterogeneous data sources from open source and social media, iii) fusion of information from different locations and times for the trend analysis of migration flows and for easy visualization. These are mainly achieved by means of new deep learning methods, taking into account the legal and ethical framework.

The digital revolution, in particular big data and artificial intelligence (AI), offer new opportunities to transform healthcare. However, it also harbors risks to the safety of sensitive clinical data stored in critical healthcare ICT infrastructure. In particular data exchange over the internet is perceived insurmountable posing a roadblock hampering big data based medical innovations. FeatureCloud’s transformative security-by-design concept will minimize the cyber-crime potential and enable first secure cross-border collaborative data mining endeavors FeatureCloud will be implemented into a software toolkit for substantially reducing cyber risks to healthcare infrastructure by employing the world-wide first privacy-byarchitecture approach, which has two key characteristics: (1) no sensitive data is communicated through any communication channels, and (2) data is not stored in one central point of attack. Federated machine learning (for privacy-preserving data mining) integrated with blockchain technology (for immutability and management of patient rights) will safely apply nextgeneration AI technology for medical purposes. Importantly, patients will be given effective means of revoking previously given consent at any time. Our ground-breaking new cloud-AI infrastructure only exchanges learned model representations which are anonymous by default. Collectively, our highly interdisciplinary consortium from IT to medicine covers all aspects of the value chain: assessment of cyber risks, legal considerations and international policies, development of federated AI technology coupled to blockchaining, app store and user interface design, implementation as certifiable prognostic medical devices, evaluation and translation into clinical practice, commercial exploitation, as well as dissemination and patient trust maximization. FeatureCloud’s goals are bold, necessary, achievable, and paving the way for a socially agreeable big data era of the Medicine 4.0 age.

VIRTCRIME
Two current developments require new forensic methods and solutions in order to continue to track the digital trail of money in investigations: the establishment of cashless societies, the increasing importance of virtual currencies of the post-Bitcoin era (e.g.: Monero, Zcash) and the significant increase in illegal activities in Darknet marketplaces.
The goal of the VIRTCRIME project is therefore to develop new algorithms and solution methods for the prosecution of criminal transactions in virtual currency systems of the post-Bitcoin era, taking into account illegitimate activities in Darknet marketplaces. The resulting tools will be based on the results of previous projects (e.g. BITCRIME) and can thus be used by stakeholders in an early project phase and validated in the context of ongoing investigations. Orthogonally to this, new criminological procedures and prosecution approaches will be developed and also the legal prerequisites and consequences will be fundamentally researched.

COMPASS - Cooperative Design Spaces for Next Generation Internet-of-Things Solutions
The Internet of Things (IoT) is driven by technological opportunism, which is characterized by ubiquitous connectivity and makes the creation of meaningful technology for people a major challenge. While some applications successfully create added value for people, businesses and society, others remind us that not everything that is possible should be realized. COMPASS aims to provide a guiding compass for the vast space of possibilities opened up by IoT to ensure the development of innovative applications that are valuable, meaningful, empowering and trustworthy, maximizing their benefits and reflecting responsible innovation. This will provide a tool to assist enterprises in developing value-driven technology and policy makers in designing appropriate regulatory frameworks, and to help research identify knowledge gaps and define future agendas accordingly. IoT as a component of the Next Generation Internet (NGI) is particularly relevant in this context, as the opportunities and problems of today's Internet are further intensified by the growing distribution and widespread availability of IoT systems.

FLORIDA
With the help of FLORIDA, a flexible, semi-automated system is to be created which will support the authorities responsible for public security administration, such as the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution and Counter-Terrorism (BM.I.BVT), in investigating, providing evidence and clarifying the situation following attacks. In the course of the project, RI is analysing the legal framework with the aim of complying with fundamental rights and constitutional barriers through the design as well as through technical and organisational accompanying measures.

KMU-CERT (WKO)
The rapidly advancing digitalization of all areas of life and business also brings with it new threat scenarios. In this situation, information exchange, knowledge building and, above all, collaboration are the best means of keeping pace, and dedicated "Computer Emergency Response Teams" (CERTs) or "Computer Security Incident Response Teams" (CSIRTs) have a special role to play.
An essential prerequisite for a well-functioning CERT is a staff qualified for the tasks. In addition to appropriate technical personnel (for the core tasks of the CERT), staff with legal competence and PR specialists are also important to increase the visibility of the CERT. In addition to technical competence, these personnel must also have management and leadership skills to coordinate in case of incidents. This increases personnel costs, as experienced and resilient personnel is usually required.
Since there is currently hardly any practical experience regarding the design of such an SME CERT, a feasibility study should be carried out to examine the possible applications, tasks, resource requirements and relationship to existing WKO initiatives.
The present study was able to show that an SME CERT can both cover a substantial need and can be integrated into the existing CERT landscape. The representative survey of 400 companies conducted as part of the study confirmed this and also showed that the WKO would be widely accepted as a provider of such a CERT.
The survey also showed that SMEs generally commission an external service provider to handle IT incidents. This confirmed the assumption that the addressing of IT specialists by an SME CERT would in turn indirectly reach SMEs. The recommendation that was then developed and confirmed by interviews is therefore that the SME CERT should address its tasks in the area of information and awareness to all SMEs via broadly based communication channels. However, direct support in the event of IT incidents should be reserved for IT and IT security service providers.

Study on the concept of a central "clearing agency" to assess the content of blocking in connection with copyright infringements
This study deals with the issue of network blocking by Internet access providers for the purpose of preventing copyright infringement on the Internet. The work focuses on the idea of establishing a central "clearing agency" to ensure a balance of interests between copyright on the one hand and freedom of information and freedom of opinion on the other. The aim is to evaluate the concept of a "clearing agency" and to formulate the fundamental conditions of such an institution. The study postulates the principle of "clearing rather than blocking" and therefore considers Internet blocking by the access provider as the ultima ratio. Accordingly, as a prerequisite for an Internet blockage, at least the (failed) attempt to hold the content provider or the host provider responsible must be proven.

CERT-Komm II
The KIRAS funded study CERT-Komm I dealt with the framework conditions of CERTs and identified those factors on which a stable and successful communication between CERTs depends. Based on these results, different modelling approaches and technical possibilities were examined.
Based on the results of the CERT-Comm I study, the aim of the present project CERT-Comm II is to develop a communication model for CERTs among each other and with private sector partners. This involves joint information and knowledge management in the context of defence against typical threat scenarios that are classified as particularly dangerous. Two representative use cases were therefore selected: botnet combat and the defence against APT attacks (Advanced Persistent Threats). These examples are used to demonstrate how the developed communication model works. In order to ensure that the communication model also fulfils the necessary requirements with regard to confidence building, endogenous and exogenous risk factors, as well as general conditions for establishing cooperation, qualitative factors will be operationalised quantitatively by means of surveys in the course of the project.

HEAT - Action Catalogue for the Evaluation of Anti-Terror Laws in Austria

The concept of HEAT is based on the third demand of the citizens' initiative zeichnemit.at, which is a preparation for the "collective disputes" of data retention organised by AKVorrat. The demand, supported by 106,067 people, demands a comprehensive evaluation of all anti-terrorism measures (laws) in Austria in the sense of a "total account" of all surveillance powers. HEAT provides the first steps of such an overall evaluation with the elaboration of the scope of evaluation, the methods as well as the criteria and represents the continuation of the initiative after the successes in the fight against data retention. This "specification" is intended to help governmental and civil organisations to identify excessive and thus potentially unconstitutional surveillance powers, so that debates on surveillance laws can be conducted in a much more structured and objective manner in the future. The detailed planning and formalities for the project were completed in the 2014 fiscal year. The start of the first work package, which consists of the formal survey of the legal situation, is also in the 2014 fiscal year, with Research Institute being responsible for all legal issues and for the interdisciplinary combination of legal, technical and social science aspects.

Topography of subjective (in)safety in Wels (TOPOS)

There is often a strong discrepancy between the objective security situation and the subjective feeling of security. This discrepancy is based less on objective risks than on subjectively and situatively perceived uncertainties, the spatio-temporal distribution of which can be analysed. In contrast to conventional surveys, the experience of security can now be captured cost-effectively and at the same time located in space and time by using mobile communication devices (smartphones).

The aim of the project is to create a corresponding software application for smartphones (TOPOS-App), with which the personal feelings of the users on site as well as their socio-demographic key data can be collected. The TOPOS project is being carried out in close cooperation with the Wels municipal police command and will be integrated into their current project activities.

The results of the evaluation (among other things in the form of visual security situation pictures) will form the basis for future-oriented measures and necessary improvements to increase the general feeling of security.

Strengthening the Rule of Law and Good Governance in SEE - ILECUs III
In the course of the two EU-funded predecessor projects ILECUs I and II, a network of so-called  International Law Enforcement Coordination Units (ILECUs) was established in the countries of the Western Balkans under the leadership of the Austrian Federal Criminal Police Office ("BK"). These units serve as central coordination and communication hubs between various institutions of national and international law enforcement. This will increase the effectiveness and efficiency of international police cooperation in the fight against cross-border organised crime. Within the framework of the projects, the ILECUs were linked to form an active network through regular meetings and the creation of a joint training platform, which also resulted in an overall increase in police and judicial cooperation between the target countries.

Within the framework of ILECUs III, now under the direction of the Boltzmann Institute for Human Rights (BIM), the aspect of data protection has for the first time become more important. On the basis of existing regulations (EU, CoE, Interpol Agreement), experts from the BIM and Research Institute are working out an overview of the legal data protection framework with regard to international police cooperation and to what extent this legal framework is to be taken into account in the ILECUs strategy. By preparing a guide on the topic of "data protection" in the context of victim protection and human trafficking and by conducting data protection training modules, the project participants from the target countries will be sensitized to the important topic of data protection and provided with the necessary know-how.

Roadmap: Threat and Security Landscape Austria
Strengthening people's trust in (secure) IT systems is one of the key issues of the information society of the present and near future. The subjective and objectively verifiable need for "security" in dealing with ICT has never been greater than today, and the trend is rising. This applies to all areas of life, both business and private. The due Technology Roadmap study responds to the social concern to strengthen trust in information technology in the long term by surveying the relevant technological developments, the foreseeable and presumed trends for the next ten years and the strategies specifically focused on trust and IT security. The roadmap study is intended to serve as a reference for the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) for the elaboration of the research funding priorities in the "ICT of the Future" programme.

CFREU - Charta of Fundamental Rights of the EU - Judges Training

Within the framework of an EU project aimed at a more effective implementation of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights (GRC) at national level, the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Human Rights is developing a training concept and a corresponding manual for judges, lawyers and other representatives of the legal professions. The handbook and the trainings aim at making the rights guaranteed by the Charter more tangible for the national scope of application and thereby increasing their relevance in legal practice. Together with Doris Obereder, a judge in the Fundamental Rights Section of the Austrian Judges' Association, Christof Tschohl conducted the training courses for judges of the courts of first instance and the highest courts as well as representatives of the senior public prosecutors' offices using the "tandem" method.

ASSOCIATED*: Protection Exercise for Computer-Based Inter-company Disaster Logistics (SCUDO)

Possible failures and malfunctions of information and communication technologies (ICT) can quickly have considerable negative consequences, especially in the area of critical infrastructure, and can assume nationally relevant dimensions. In the SCUDO project, an exercise process tailored and optimised for Austrian companies is being tested, with which crisis management can be simulated and the suitability of corresponding international standards can be checked. One of the main objectives of the SCUDO project is the planning and execution of several emergency exercise scenarios with corporate partners from the critical infrastructure.
