DIAMONDS will introduce four main innovations in the field of security testing methods and technologies:
- Advanced model-based security testing methods that combine different techniques to obtain improved results applicable to multi-domain security.
- Development of autonomous testing techniques based on automatic monitoring techniques to improve resilience of dynamically evolving systems.
- Pre-standardization work on multi-domain security test methodologies and test patterns allowing DIAMONDS to offer interoperable security test techniques and tools.
- Open source platform for security test tool integration to provide a common platform, which provides the user a single user interface towards various test tools, as well as a single reporting interface to have concise report from the various tools.
These innovations aim at building a pre-standard for model-based security testing targeting heterogeneous and distributed systems and services and represent the enabling technology necessary for the introduction of formal security testing in industry.
