The STOP-IT project

The H2020-funded European STOP-IT research project, which is dealing with the protection of water infrastructures from cyber and physical threats, has reached its second stage. The project solutions and tools have been developed and are now tested at the frontrunner water utilities to guarantee applicability and adaptability of the solutions.

STOP-IT developed a toolbox of technologies for securing critical water infrastructure assets from physical threats. It contains a set of novel tools, such as smart locking mechanisms, computer vision and sensor-based tools and authorization and intrusion detection technologies.

Another project outcome is the cyber threat sharing system. It is collecting sources of existing threats from relevant feeds, structures the information and sends out personalized alerts. The report supports the use of the developed tools, describing their technical requirements, installation procedures and usage instructions
