Resilient Message Oriented Middleware to support Critical Infrastructures and related applications

Emergency Services, Energy Generation and Telecommunications are all vulnerable and under threat. It is vital to ensure that these service providers critical messages reach their destination.

This project explicitly focused on responding to the increasing threat to complex critical information infrastructures. It facilitates the information infrastructure needed for highly resilient and cost effective critical applications by building appropriate resilience and security services into the middleware that underpins their development. More specifically, it provides improved control over Quality of Service (QoS) and resilience to failure, demand surges and Denial of Service (DoS)  attacks by integrating protective services into message oriented middleware (MOM) and hence enhancing survivability, performance and reducing production costs of complex interdependent 'systems of systems'.

Funded by the UK Technology Strategy Board, The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), under their Information Infrastructure Protection programme of investment in highly innovative collaborative research and development projects in the area of Information Infrastructure Protection.  Project ref: BK089G
