The CRISP project consists of nine Work Packages (WPs). Each of these WPs will produce several deliverables. Upon completion of the relevant work, copies of deliverables will be available here. To stay up-to-date with the project, please contact us.

WP1:  Categorising security equipment, systems and services

WP1:  Categorising security equipment, systems and services aims to provide a better understanding of security products and systems, concepts of operations, application areas and performance and develop taxonomy for them. WP1 will also set out criteria for comparing security products and systems to facilitate evaluation and certification through a harmonised approach. The Deliverables of WP1 are: 

WP2: Review of standards, certification and accreditation for security products

WP2: Review of standards, certification and accreditation for security products aims to, first, provide a historical/evolutionary perspective on security certification and related standards in Europe. Second, it aims to study and analyse the state of the art in security certification and related standards as well as the state of the art in security accreditation at the Member State, regional and international level. The WP, third, aims to identify standards having specific potential for use in European certification. The Deliverables of WP2 are:

WP3: Security certification stakeholder analysis

WP3: Security certification stakeholder analysis aims to provide a historical/evolutionary perspective on security certification and related standards in Europe, and to study and analyse the state of the art in security certification and related standards. WP3 will also examine the state of the art in security accreditation at the Member States, regional and international level, and identify standards having specific potential for use in European certification.  The Deliverable of WP3 is: 

WP4: Analysis of core dimensions-security, trust, efficiency, freedom infringements

WP4: Analysis of core dimensions-security, trust, efficiency, freedom infringements aims to identify and analyse the core issues associated with certification and come up with the requirements by which existing evaluation and certification schemes could be used and possibly further enhanced for the assessment and certification of  security products (i.e. best practice). The Deliverables of WP4 are:

WP5: Development and testing of the certification methodology

WP5: Development and testing of the certification methodology aims to develop and describe a harmonised approach and certification methodology for security certification in Europe. The WP furthermore aims to develop and outline policy and certification procedures for security certification, and test drive the proposed certification model, evaluate its actual working and accordingly, revise and refine the certification scheme. The Deliverables of WP5 are:

  • D5.1 Validated certification methodology (due September 2015)
  • D5.2 Report on the scenario workshops (due January 2016)
WP6: Developing a roadmap

WP6: Developing a roadmap aims to develop and validate a clear roadmap for the proposed certification scheme, and to develop and refine the certification manual. The Deliverables of WP6 are: 

  • D6.1 Final roadmap and implementation plan (March 2016)
  • D6.2 Final certification manual (June 2016)
WP7: Enhancing confidence in the new certification measures 

WP7: Enhancing confidence in the new certification measures aims to build confidence and enhance acceptance of the new certification measures, specifically in an EU-wide security standards and certification process. The WP will also work on promoting measures to ensure the success of the EU-wide security standards and certification scheme and to engage the key stakeholders and involve them in the process. The work will also focus on identifying advocates among the key stakeholders that could facilitate gaining confidence and enhance acceptance of the new certification measures. The Deliverables of WP7 are: 

  • D7.1 Consolidated report on enhancing confidence and acceptability of new certification measures (due February 2017)
  • D7.2 CEN workshop agreement (due February 2017)
  • D7.3 Interim exploitation plan (due June 2016)
  • D7.4 Final, consolidated exploitation plan (due March 2017)
WP8: Dissemination

 WP8: Dissemination aims to disseminate the project’s research and results through effective dissemination activities. It will identify stakeholders, their drivers and the best media by which to reach them, and engage with them to promote the goals of EU-wide certification of security products. The Deliverables of WP8 are:

  • D8.1 Project website (due June 2014)
  • D8.3 Briefing papers on the proposed certification scheme and roadmap (due February 2017) 
WP9: Project management

WP9: Project management ensures the continuous and smooth progress of the project throughout its lifetime. Deliverable of WP9 is:

  • D9.4 Report on the ethical aspects of the project (March 2017)
