    Project Highlights

    The EU-funded RIGOUROUS project has officially commenced, marking a significant milestone in Europe’s pursuit of robust security and trust for the next-generation 6G wireless ecosystem. This ambitious initiative brings together a consortium of leading research institutions and industry partners from across the continent, united by a common goal: to establish a comprehensive framework that safeguards the security, privacy, and integrity of 6G networks and services.

    At the heart of the RIGOUROUS project lies the development of a novel smart service framework that seamlessly integrates machine learning (ML) and cybersecurity capabilities. This transformative framework will continuously monitor and assess the security posture of 6G systems, proactively identifying and mitigating potential breaches before they can cause harm, using a SOAR approach.

    The RIGOUROUS project represents a critical step towards ensuring the resilience of 6G against evolving cyber threats. By harnessing the power of ML and AI, we are creating a dynamic DevSecOps and DevPrivOps aligned security solution that can adapt to the ever-changing threat landscape and safeguard the trust and reliability of future 6G networks.

    The project’s scope extends beyond security to encompass privacy and trust as well. Researchers will explore innovative techniques to embed privacy-preserving mechanisms into 6G architectures, ensuring that user data is protected and respected. Additionally, they will develop methods for establishing and maintaining trust in the use of future networks, including an human factor.

    As RIGOUROUS progresses, it will collaborate closely with industry partners to validate and integrate its security framework into real-world 6G pilots. This practical application will ensure that the project’s advancements directly benefit the development and deployment of secure and trustworthy 6G networks across Europe.
