Acronym: FREE6G_Security
Code: TSI-063000-2021-151

FREE6G-Security (within the coordinated project FREE6G), will introduce mechanisms that guarantee privacy and security in multi-tenancy environments, targeting both end users and tenants. Thus, application providers and end users can maintain control over their data when relying on shared infrastructures, without sacrificing on functionality. FREE6G-Security mechanisms and policies will provide trustworthiness and resiliency against security failures or breaches, thus guaranteeing data and computation integrity, while at the same time, generating privacy preserving data representations. The developed security policies will incorporate the requirements of the different stakeholders, contextual information, trust assumptions, and relevant legislation. At the same time, FREE6G-Security will define techniques for protecting sensitive/private information without affecting the way it is accessed/used. Moreover, FREE6G-Security aims to develop blockchain-based solutions that will foster collaboration between tenants via smart contracts, supporting the flexible negotiation of Network Slice contracts, without the need for a centralized, trusted entity. Finally, FREE6G-Security will employ federated learning solutions with blockchain technologies to provide system-level security in 6G server-less architectures.
