This study was carried out under the umbrella of ENISA by a group of experts in the relevant areas who are experienced in running security-related research projects, in developing and implementing new networking technologies and in creating policies.
A number of areas, comprising one or more technologies and policies that are currently in use or where there are plans to introduce them within a few years, were identified as having an impact on the resilience of networks. Some of these areas are already well established, described and standardised, some are in the very early stages of development and, finally, some will only come into broad use over a very long time frame (more than five years).
Five areas have been assessed as presenting the biggest need for research within a window of three to five years: cloud computing, real-time detection and diagnosis systems, future wireless networks, sensor networks, and supply chain integrity. These areas are analysed and described in detail in the core of this report.
