SWIFT is a EU project
EU ICT FP7 Project SWIFT
SWIFT (Secure Widespread Identities for Federated Telecommunications) is a European Union funded project of the 7th Framework Programme. The project leverages identity technology as a key to integrate service and transport infrastructures for the benefit of users and the providers. It focuses on extending identity functions and federation to the network while addressing usability and privacy concerns.
Nine Parters form the SWIFT Consortium
The SWIFT consortium is led by Fraunhofer SIT. Other members are Alcatel-Lucent, Deutsche Telekom, Dracotic, ITAveiro, NEC (Technical Lead), Portugal Telecom, University of Murcia and University of Stuttgart.
30 Month Project Duration
The project proposal was submitted to the EU Commission as part of Call 1 of the 7th Framework Programme. Negotiations were completed in September 2007, and the final Description of work was approved in November of the same year. The project started operation on 1st Janaury 2008 and has an overall 30 month time span. The planned completion date is 30th June 2010.
Work Methods, Dissemination and Exploitation
This WP is responsible for defining the work working methods and to manage dissemination. The task includes the definition work methods, dissemination towards the general public and towards journals and conferences, standardization co-ordination and exploitation within the participating companies and beyond.
This WP drives the technical work by defining an overall architecture, the IdM platform to be adopted and dealing with the more general issues of federation, name resolution and data modelling. Based on initial scenarios and use-cases, it will identify the gaps in the SoA and address them. The WP will also handle name resolution, federation and defining the data models used in cross-layer information exchange.
The WP develops the necessary security requirements and protocols. It will deal with the overall security analysis as well as specify and implement specific security primitives. Topics covered are the threat model, assurance metrics and the privacy and security implications of identity transfer. It will also instantiate some privacy and security enhancing techniques at different layers and crypto primitives.
Service and Network Architecture
This WP deals with the specific protocols which interact with the identity platform at service and network level. Whether existing protocols will be adapted to the identity architecture or new network and service level protocols need to be designed will depend on their suitability for the identity platform. The WP will deal with an network-related functions, such as AAA, billing and charging, mobility and roaming.
Scenarios and Evaluation
The WP will design scenarios based on use-cases which demonstrate the benefit of a cross-layer architecture. It will also design sub-demonstrators, taking the scenarios and use-cases as a basis, and instantiate these demonstrators using the software provided by the other work-packages.
