BEIA Consult participates in WorldCIST’ – 7th World Conference on Information Systems and Technologies on 16-19 April 2019 in Galicia, Spain (La Toja Island).

The WorldCist’19 is a global forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns in the several perspectives of Information Systems and Technologies.

BEIA Consult participates with 2 papers:

  • Lego Methodology Approach for Common Criteria Certification of IoT Telemetry – George SUCIU, Cristiana ISTRATE, Ioana PETRE, Andrei SCHEIANU

In our days, almost every business relays on medium-to-high performance computer systems which presents the possibility of being the target of different threats that can exploit the vulnerable software, respectively hardware components. The concept of ¨security risk¨ can be described as a specific threat that using a specific type of attack presents the ability to exploit system vulnerabilities, action which will affect the entire integrity of the target-ed systems. From this point of view, the main idea of this paper is to present a Lego methodology approach for Common Criteria certification that can be applied to IoT Telemetry systems. Furthermore, we present scenarios of implementation of our approach to increase robustness level applied for agro-telemetry system.

  • Cybersecurity Threats Analysis for Airports – George SUCIU, Andrei SCHEIANU, Ioana PETRE, Loredana CHIVA, Cristina Sabina BOSOC

In today’s society, the cyber-security subject raises a lot of uncomfortable questions and gives no alternative to cyber-attacks. Thus, for a better under-standing of the problem, people should know that such attacks are deliberate malicious acts undertaken via cyber-space to compromise the system directly and extract valuable information. In terms of airport informational security, there are a lot to take into consideration, from digitalized processes (e.g. flight display, check-in process) to all human activities (e.g. ensuring guid-ance to the gates, welcoming people on board). Due to the latest trend of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), the introduction of the new generation e-Enabled aircraft, such as Boeing 787 (including all the technologies they support and wireless connectivity) contributed to the growth of the cyber-security breaches. In order to reduce these events, people should understand the danger they can easily generate using, for instance, mobile terminals during a flight. For the prevention of malicious attacks, the authorized per-sonnel have to conduct an in-depth analysis of all the security interconnec-tions which were established between different networks. The main idea of this paper is to describe several use-cases where the cyber-security field relat-ed to airports is brought to the public attention.
