NATO’s Science for Peace and Security Programme: Inviting Proposals on Cyber Defence



Deadline: 31 October 2017


The North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) Science for Peace and Security (SPS) Programme is seeking proposals on “Cyber Defence”, to target scientific and technological advancements in the field of cyber defence.


Cyber threats and attacks are becoming more frequent, sophisticated and damaging. The Alliance of today faces an evolving and complex threat environment previously unseen in this domain of operations. Both state and non-state actors have the ability to use cyber-attacks which could be as harmful to modern societies as a conventional attack as well as increasingly incorporating cyber-attacks within hybrid warfare.


Key Priorities

- Critical infrastructure protection, including sharing of best practices, capacity building and policies;

- Support in developing cyber defence capabilities, including new technologies and support to the construction of information technology infrastructure;

- Cyber defence situation awareness.


Programme Scope

- Operational Cyber Security: Support for Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTS)

- Incident Management and Response

- Cyber Security Technology: Solutions for defending against cyber-terrorism, cyber-physical attacks, zero-day attacks, ransomware, Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), malware and botnets.

- Security of Cyber-Physical Systems

- Software Security Assurance

- Crypto Ransomware Mitigation Techniques

- Distributed Trust Mechanisms

- Secure Hardware Platforms

- Quantum Safe Solutions: design and implementation of cryptographic solutions in settings where an - adversary may have access to large-scale quantum computing resources.

- Secure/Verifiable Computation

- Secure Group Communication

- Cyber Security Strategies and Policies.


Eligibility Criteria

- Applications from researchers in NATO countries and NATO partner countries can be accepted.

- Funding Mechanisms:

The SPS Programme supports collaboration through three established grant mechanisms: multi-year research projects (MYP), workshops (Advanced Research Workshop), and training courses (Advanced Studies Institutes/Advanced Training Courses).
