STIFTELSEN SINTEF is the largest multidisciplinary independent research organisation in Scandinavia, with approximately 2100 employees, of which more than 45% of the research staff holds a PhD degree. In the RASEN project, SINTEF will be represented by the Quality and Security Technology (QST) group from the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) research division, which is one of eight research divisions in SINTEF. The QST group has strong research expertise within methodologies and tools in the security and risk field, as well as their practical application in industrial cases. In particular, the research group focuses on the areas of model-based security analysis; model-driven security architecture; system modelling, refinement and semantics; trust management; tools for analysis and documentation; empirical research on methods and tools for risk analysis. The research has been performed in the context of industrial projects, national projects and project funded by the EU; the latter include CORAS, iTrust, TrustCom, S3MS, MASTER, SecureChange and NESSoS. In addition to a number of papers on various aspects of risk analysis, this work has resulted in the book “Model-Driven Risk Analysis: The CORAS Approach” by Mass Soldal Lund, Bjørnar Solhaug and Ketil Stølen which was published by Springer in 2011.

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is Germany’s leading organisation for applied research. The Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communication Systems (FOKUS) participates in this project. FOKUS conducts research in system development and testing technologies, communication, intelligent multi-media, and embedded and automotive systems. The major goal of the work at FOKUS is i-centric, ubiquitous communication together with the necessary technological glue to enable the evolution of tomorrow’s information systems. FOKUS was established in 1988 in Berlin. Currently, the FOKUS staff comprises of more than 220 employees from 26 nations. FOKUS maintains cooperation with a large number of national and international industrial partners (e.g. Deutsche Telekom, Hitachi, NTT Data, NTT DoCoMo, Daimler, VW, AUDI, BMW, Microsoft, Nokia, Eutelsat, Motorola, Samsung, Siemens), and participates in international research programmes (e.g. of the European Commission, European Space Agency, Eureka/ITEA, Eureka/CELTIC) as well as in national R&D programmes (e.g. BMBF, BMWi). In order to prove applicability of system and test specifications as well as prototype and pre-product solutions, a number of test and experimentation laboratories such as the BSI Cert Lab and the Test Lab or the Center for Interoperability are maintained at FOKUS. Developed solutions are often commercially marketed by the “Spin-off” companies of FOKUS such as: ikv++ technologies, IVISTAR, Testing Technologies, TwonkyVision, and Iptelorg. FOKUS also has a strong foundation in academia: FOKUS senior researchers lead three chairs at the Technical University Berlin and one chair at the University for Applied Research Bonn/Rhein/Sieg. The Competence Centre Modeling and Testing for System and Service Solutions (MOTION) lead by Prof. Dr. Ina Schieferdecker will be participating in the RASEN project. It concentrates on approaches and solutions for test development, model based system development and software security audits. Consequently, a major branch of the research activities in this domain is concerned with the development of tool technologies both for testing (TTCN-3, UTP) and modelling (MDA, UML, MOF, QVT). In addition, MOTION can provide experience in the areas of security testing and security inspection techniques gained in the BSI Cert Lab and the research project DIAMONDS (www.itea2-diamonds.org). MOTION combines the experience and expertise of the FOKUS groups on test methods and test development and on model based architectures into a common vision of an integrated system and test development approach leading to a more comprehensive, effective and efficient production process of high-quality and secure software. MOTION has many years of experiences in leading and managing national and international projects.

The Institut FEMTO-ST is a joint research unit, which is affiliated with the French National Centre of Scientific Research (CNRS), the University of Franche-Comté (UFC), the National School of Mechanical Engineering and Microtechnology (ENSMM), and the Belfort-Montbéliard University of Technology (UTBM). It merges together 7 different laboratories active in different fields of engineering science including the Department of Computer Science for Complex Systems (DISC). The staff involved in the RASEN project belongs to the VESONTIO team of this department. This team has a strong experience and extensive knowledge about model-based testing approaches to validate IT and Web applications regarding security and vulnerability issues. In particular, it has been involved for several years to national and international programs (Interreg, FP7, ANR, etc.) about model-based testing techniques, e.g., FI-WARE (2011-2014, European FP7 research project proposing unit active testing and monitoring frameworks for IoT systems), DAST (2011-2014, French ANR research project addressing model-based testing and vulnerability assessment for security testing), and SecureChange (2009-2012, European FP7 research project addressing compliance to security and privacy of evolving IT systems).

Smartesting is an independent software vendor dedicated to model-based testing solutions. Development of the Smartesting core technologies began in the mid 1990s at the University of Besancon (France), with the goal of reducing the cost of software validation using automated test generation techniques. Smartesting was incorporated at the beginning of 2003. The Smartesting model-based testing tool, named CertifyIt, is based on UML statecharts, but also supports BPMN scenario-oriented models, and pre/post-condition style models using UML’s constraint language OCL. Test selection can be based on numerous criteria, including requirements coverage and structural coverage like transition coverage. The tool also supports test selection based on scenarios in BPMN. The tool generates test suites for offline testing in numerous industry standard formats, and supports traceability back to the model. CertifyIt is dedicated to IT applications, secure electronic transactions and packaged applications such as SAP or Oracle E-Business Suite. The current staff is 30 including R&D (15), professional services (8), administrative (2) and sales-marketing (7). Smartesting headquarter and R&D is located in Besancon (France) with business locations in Paris and Bangalore (India). The Smartesting solution is deployed in several enterprise software domains such a Bank&Finance, Telecom and Industry.
