In 2018 the European Commission set up a special fund in the Horizon 2020 program to fund centers of excellence in the field of cyber security. Among the four centers selected at the tender is also CONCORDIA, which included the Laboratory for Open Systems and Networks of the Jožef Stefan Institute at the invitation of the coordinator of the German research institute CODE. The Center will provide research and development solutions for a safe, resilient and trusted European ecosystem. Laboratory staff will carry out research and development in the field of confidentiality, electronic identity management, user-friendly services for e-health and smart solutions to prevent cyber threats.
Laboratory for Open Systems and Networks at Jožef Stefan Institute is offering one scholarship for obtaining a PhD degree in science in the field of information security and new internet technologies and services.

General info: Jožef Stefan Institute (http://www.ijs.si) is the biggest research institute in Slovenia. Laboratory for Open Systems and Networks (http://www.e5.ijs.si) has a long tradition of research and development in the fields of information security, computer networks, telecommunication technologies, and information society services and applications. Currently, the main R&D activity focuses on internet technologies and services, information security and privacy, and technology-enhanced learning. R&D activities are carried out mainly in the EU projects and within national research programme “Future internet technologies: concepts, architectures, services, and socio-economic issues”. In 2017 the laboratory participated in 8 EU projects from the Horizon 2020 programme, 7th Framework programme, EU Cybercrime prevention programme, DG Justice programme, EU Competence and Innovation programme, and Erasmus+ programme.
Laboratory for Open Systems and Networks started the year of 2018 with two new projects from the EU Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) programme: SI-PASS and eID4U.
The main goal of the SI-PASS project, coordinated by the laboratory, is to build a production ready Slovenian eIDAS node and integrate four existing public and one private cross-border e-services with the node. The services belong to the eHealth, intellectual property systems, e-Pension, public legal records, and business transactions domains. The integration will enable users from other EU countries to access those services with their national identification schemes.
The eID4U project will create a virtual student card based on the standard eIDAS attributes for physical persons and the new attributes required for the academic environment. The project partners will also establish secure cross-border academic services for eRegistration, eLogin, and eAccess.
Laboratory for Open Systems and Networks and the SENTER Network of Centres of Excellence in Cybercrime are organizing the 2nd annual SENTER conference on Open source intelligence (OSINT) and the fight against cybercrime and cyberterrorism. The conference will take place on the 8th November 2017 in Hotel Park, Bled, Slovenia.
The main goals of the conference are to get an overview on the recent OSINT R&D results, present leading industrial solutions in that area, discuss the future and role of OSINT, and identify the pertinent issues of the fight against cybercrime, especially those related to crypto currencies.
The conference is intended for law enforcement agencies (LEA), judicial authorities, industry delivering specialized solutions for LEA, researchers and scientists working with LEA and defence topics, and other practitioners in the area of the fight against cybercrime. Representatives of the ENLETS (European Network of Law Enforcement Technology Services) network will also attend the event.
Institut Jožef Stefan je organiziral že 25. izvedbo tradicionalnih Dnevov Jožefa Stefana. V okviru teh je v soboto, 25. marca potekal tudi dan odprtih vrat. Obiskovalci so izbirali med številnimi programi obiskov in si med drugim ogledali tudi naš laboratorij. Obiskalo nas je 5 skupin in skupaj 45 obiskovalcev, ki so z zanimanjem spremljali kratke predstavitve o svetovnem spletu in varni uporabi internetnih storitev.
