New cyber-security open-source technology launched by CS-AWARE EU project
The Oulu University Secure Programming Group is partner in the project that has launched as open source the STIX 2.0 specification implementation in Gson/Java. STIX (Structured Threat Information Expression) is a structured language for describing cyber threat information so it can be shared, stored, and analyzed in a consistent manner.  CS-AWARE project  is an EU H2020  funded project focusing on cyber-security situational awareness.
CS-AWARE project aims to produce be a simple and cost effective cyber-security awareness solution that helps administrators to understand the cyber-security situation within their systems. The solution relies heavily on cooperative cyber-security, by utilizing information about problems that others have shared in order to detect and mitigate incidents within one’s own systems. There are 13 EU partners  that make the project consortium from Finland, Austria, Germany, UK, Italy, Denmark, Ireland, Greece and Netherlands.
CS-AWARE is a holistic cyber-security awareness solution aimed at local public administrations, non-governmental organizations and small and medium enterprises to protect against and detect attacks as well as offering sound and realizable solutions by:
- automatic incident detection and visualization,
- information exchange with national and EU-level NIS authorities,
- system self-healing, and
- multi-lingual semantic support.
The STIX 2.0 GSon/Java open source can be downloaded from Github under the BSD-3-clause license .
This open source java library addresses specifically to the cyber-security community and has been designed with a generic use purpose in mind for anyone that requires the use of the latest STIX2.0 specification . The library implements parts 1 to 5 of the STIX 2.0 specification .
