• About Laboratory

    Laboratory for Open Systems and Networks

    Laboratory for Open Systems and Networks was established in 1992. The focus of our activities are research and development of information security, next generation networks, telecommunication technologies, components and integrated systems, and information society services and applications. The laboratory is implementing the research programme “Future internet technologies: concepts, architectures, services and socio-economic issues”. Research is also carried out in the Horizon 2020, DG JUST, and CEF programmes, and a national project.

  • Cyber Security

    Information security, privacy and the fight against cyber crime

    Security research is performed both from the technical and socio-economic points of view. The research results include building blocks for cryptographic algorithms, algorithms for trust management, context-based security mechanisms, access control protocols, methods for user authentication and authorisation, models for cybersecurity evaluation, methods for critical infrastructure protection, and infrastructures for secure cross-border services.

    Majority of the activities is performed in the EU projects, such as DEFENDER, CONCORDIA, COMPACT, eSENS, STORK 2.0, SI-PASS, eID4U, DIADEM, FAIN, DAIDALOS, ICE-CAR or ICE-TEL.

  • E-learning

    Technology Enhanced Learning

    E-learning technologies have been one of the main areas of our research and development for many years. The results include brokerage platforms for exchange of learning material, smart spaces for learning, serious games (e.g. for digital forensics training), and cloud-based training platforms.

    Many of the research activities were carried out in the EU funded projects, such as GIRDA, EMPLOYID, iCamp, Elena, PROLEARN, UNIVERSAL, e4VET, SELPRAF, MERLAB, ICOPER, and OpenScout.
