by | Feb 16, 2022 | Technology

One year after the announcement of the National Cyber Strategy, the Cyber Campus was inaugurated by
Bruno Le Maire, Minister of the Economy, Finance and Recovery, Frédérique Vidal,
Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, and Cédric O,
Secretary of State for Digital Transition and Electronic Communications. The
campus will spearhead France's cyber policy.

The first winners are as follows:


The aim of the project is to develop a secure video-conferencing, chat and file-sharing solution
that guarantees the confidentiality and integrity of data,
the identity of interlocutors and complete anonymity with regard to third parties, all this
without having to rely on any server, with ease of use, open to
the outside world and with no limit on the number of users.


The project involves hybridizing with existing products to create a complete
"Zero Trust" and "Zero Knowledge" office suite (collaborative editing, instant messaging,
file storage, indexing engine, enterprise directory coupling, etc.), enabling
users to collaborate and exchange sensitive, end-to-end encrypted and signed data without latency, using the Public Cloud as an exchange hub.


The aim of the CyberSafeOS project is to provide architects of cyber-physical systems,
with an essential technological building block in the form of an operating system (OS) intended to
be used and integrated as an off-the-shelf (COTS) component when designing these
systems to meet the dual requirements of cybersecurity and operational safety.


The CASES project aims to build a safe and secure generic sovereign computer,
enabling the control and command of critical infrastructures at the highest level
of integrity. It combines the state of the art in terms of computers and software, using
formal methods in a reasoned way.


The Oversec project aims to design a multi-platform software brick that can be integrated into
various critical infrastructure assets, enabling them to filter and encrypt their
communications. It will be designed to be highly resilient to cyber-attacks and
to hardware or software failures that could impact operational reliability, and
the processes for maintaining it in operational and security conditions, including
updates, will need to be transparent to protected production. In addition, the deployment and
configuration of the various instances of the software will be carried out globally, with a
approach accessible to non-expert cybersecurity professionals.
