TIM is involved both in research and in innovation regarding cyber security and more generally the security of information and networks.

Activities carried out in 2017 included the following:

  • the definition and development of innovative enabler prototypes for the security and privacy of future 5G networks under the scope of the participation in the 5G-ENSURE (5G Enablers for Network and System Security and Resilience) consortium funded by the EU with the H2020 programme. The consortium aims to study, define and test the security and resilience measures of the future 5G networks for a 5G Security Architecture;
  • the study and development of innovative solutions for research, collection, management and consumption d'intelligence connected with the new security threats (Cyber Threat Intelligence) with prototyping a Threat Intelligence Platform;
  • the study and development of new security analytics  to be used with visual analysis tools and security big data platforms;
  • the pursuit of the activities overseeing and guiding mobile security with participation in the works of the GSMA (GSM Association) Fraud and Security Group;
  • the collaboration, within the scope and 3GPP[1 SA[2] SECAM[3], for the definition of the security requirements and test methods on devices for 3GPP standard (SECAM) networks and those for the security of 5G infrastructure; (anna, attenzione alle note)
  • the promotion and development area ETNO NSecFC WG (Network and Services Security, Fraud and Cybercrime) and more specifically in under cert TF (Computer Emergence Response Team Task Force) of a new line of activity on issues of "Cyber Threat Intelligence", while it was continued to work on the topics of DDOS mitigation (Distributed denial of service);
  • the promotion and participation in the work of the group national public/private aimed at "info sharing", in other words the structured sharing of indicators of impairment (IoC);
  • the development, in the context of ETSI[4, of the works of TC CYBER focused on cyber security;
  • the study of the evolution of security threats in the Internet of Things (IoT platform);
  • implementation of various scouting and testing campaigns on innovative security solutions;
  • the development of IPR[5].
