In ACDC, we bring together a world class of partners from European countries, including public administrations, private sector organizations and academia, in order to achieve a sustainable victory over a powerful cyber threat commonly known as botnet.

We integrate the matured knowledge of our consortium into an integrated strategy ranging from adoption to governance, supported by a full service offer for controlling cyber security problems, particularly botnets. The proposed pilot addresses the identification, measurement, and analysis of botnets as well as the prevention, detection, mitigation, recovery, and evaluation of their impact. We present an end-to-end approach for controlling cyber security problems from detection to protection, manifested as five powerful services, operated by our member states.

XLAB’s role

XLAB provides network-level expertise for detection of mobile network abuse (botnets in mobile networks, WP2) and high-performance data collection, analysis (design, implementation).
XLAB contributes to the definition of pilot experiments (WP3), focusing on data collected from mobile platforms and to evaluation activities and measuring impacts (WP4) with experience in data analysis and definitions of evaluation metrics.
