Railway infrastructures are moving towards more intelligent, connected, user-centric and collaborative systems. While it brings many advantages for the industry and users, it also poses new opportunities for cyber-criminals and terrorists.

In this context, CYRail project has received funding from the Shift2Rail Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730843 addressing the topic "Threat detection and profile protection definition for cybersecurity assessment".

An analysis of threats targeting Railway infrastructures will be developed as well as innovative, attack detection and alerting techniques.

Protection Profiles for railway control and signalling applications will be delivered to ensure security by design of new rail infrastructures.
