Significance for science
The research was oriented towards issues arising from the new challenges of the evolvement of the Future Internet and related services that reaffirm Internet openness, interoperability and end-to-end principles while supporting broader, more agile and demanding set of end users and services for fulfilling various stakeholders’ needs. The research results contributed to the shaping of new science discipline denoted as »Internet Sciences« that builds on the technologies from the telecommunication field and the social elements of their use that appeared with pervasiveness of those technologies. The results of the program are evidencing the contribution of the arising new scientific discipline that addresses the technical development, but is also integrating the influence of the users and the society in general on the new economical and society paradigm that is happening all over the world. In particular, the results have provided radically new concepts and technologies for a number of issues identified in the course of the development of this complex field that contains aspects such as IoT, virtual communities and behavioural patterns, people driven Internet technologies and applications, security, resilience and dependability, new platforms, social web impact on the Internet evolution, identity, trust and privacy issues in the networked world, economic aspects of Internet etc. The program has laid foundations for interoperable and pervasive communications with recognition and classification of current communication issues in regard to the future networking systems. Scientific gaps in security and security services provisioning have been addressed in a number of services and domains, from security protocols for new generation of peer-to-peer content delivery platforms, user friendly graphical authentication on mobile devices, context awareness security for pervasive systems and smart mobile devices, mechanisms for single sign on in diverse cloud systems, to solving interoperability issues of secure cross-border trustable identification systems and attribute exchange. The security research has been additionally fostered by scientific contributions to understanding of issues related to trust and reputation in modern Internet systems and services. All researched security and trust mechanisms have been applied and validated in various domains, from content distribution, collaboration, e-learning and content management, cloud services provisioning to cross-border e-learning, e-business and e-health infrastructures. Through a number of publications the program has contributed to the scientific understanding of specific domain requirements, available solutions and their validation. The interdisciplinary nature of the program group has resulted in contributions from additional scientific angle to studied solutions and domains. An economic and business model studies have provided important results on penetration and diffusion of broadband and digital TV technologies, economic acceptability of several technological solutions, decision-making model of investments into security solutions and contributions of new technologies, within services such as e-banking. All scientific contributions combined provide important foundations for future scientific work and research. The areas requiring the research have been identified, like a need for systematic approach in the area of the networked world facing the problems with cyber security, crime and terrorism, novel security and privacy mechanisms and techniques in particular related to cloud technologies and smart mobile systems and interoperability of information and systems in crucial e-* domains encircling common EU interoperability framework. In the same manner as already shown by the new scientific discipline »Internet sciences« the scientific work should address the areas that are part of it such as the new economic and business model for the Internet world.
Significance for the country
In the future even more users, institutions, »things« and critical information infrastructure will be connected to the Future Internet and this will become a critical factor for supporting and improving the Slovenian and European economy. The growing importance of context-awareness, intuitive communication services fitting mobile lifestyle and mobilized workforce will be included in intelligent services that are smart but invisible to users. The social and economic benefits of making ICT services in areas as diverse as health, governance, business, learning, sustainable environment, safety, intelligent transportation and entertainment are certainly remarkable and are growing. EU and Slovenia as its full member are building the new Digital market with an aim to foster economic prosperity and better life. The new Digital market or the New Digital Schengen must lay on secure and trustable systems and services in order to become reality and to serve the European citizens and economy. The program results as reported contribute to the fulfilling of the vision of common digital market and support of the advanced technology to become the key backbone of the EU and Slovenian society and economy. Every publication of the program members brings its own value to the market and contributes to the Slovenian society and economy. Some publications have brought insights into future development regarding networking infrastructures and issues related to security and privacy. Others provide insights and methodologies to economically evaluate the merits of the investments into the digital infrastructure and technologies. Both could be fruitfully reused by public and private sector and can provide them a competitive edge. Various domains and areas addressed can further benefit based on concepts, protocols, platforms and solutions developed in the program. In the area of content and media distribution a number of stakeholders can benefit from the work in the project; from content owners with immediate access to larger market, broadcasters with ability to secure the distribution at lowest prices, network providers with reduced overall network load and end users with broader access to the content at more affordable conditions and prices. In particular are important efforts of the program related to the development of the single European market and secure cross-border services, mechanisms and solutions suitable for various domains like e-health, e-learning, e-justice and e-business which have been developed in Slovenia. With collaboration of public and related private sector, stimulated by the program, such efforts can enable Slovenian economy to gain additional momentum and grounds. Furthermore, the program has contributed to launching of successful spin-off SME (SETCCE, d.o.o) working in the area of secure electronic commerce, and the other developed technologies are already sufficiently matured for similar start-ups. Significant contribution was provided to the cloud infrastructure being built in the country with the authentication system MUPOSS. The program results have been introduced into Slovenian Higher Education system through undergraduate and graduate programmes of the Jozef Stefan International Postgraduate School and Faculty of Economics, University of Ljubljana where members of the project team are teaching. The work in the program has initiated a large number of master degrees and PhD studies. In this way the knowledge and discoveries made in the program are passed to the future researchers and entrepreneurs promising benefits and future advances in the topic tackled by the program.
