The EU FP6 integrated project IRRIIS on dependent critical infrastructures: Summary and conclusions
IRRIIS was an EU FP6 IST Integrated Project on "Integrated Risk Reduction of Information-based Infrastructure Systems". Whereas single Critical Infrastructures are well understood and managed today, dependencies and interdependencies between them are still a widely open issue within the same domain and across different domains. IRRIIS was focused on a comprehensive methodology, on integrated models and federated simulations of dependencies and interdependencies between Critical Infrastructures. The SimCIP system for federated simulation we developed and used in various cI use cases. An approach towards the communication between SCADA centers and risk estimation taking the situation in depending CIs into account will be presented here. Conclusions will be drawn, and challenges for future research in this area be identified.
