General programme objectives

Primary objective

The national objective of Finland has been set in Finland’s data security strategy; becoming a leader in the data security field by 2019. The Cyber Trust programme is aimed at creating a foundation for research and industry in the growing field of data security. This challenging goal can be achieved by utilising good expertise, knowledge and close co-operation between public and private operators. This programme will help interest groups in Finland increase the general awareness of data security on a national level and become leading developers in the global data security ecosystem.


All concrete research activities will be implemented in the programme through company Business Cases in collaboration with research institutions and institutes of higher education. JAMK is involved in the Business Case of Elisa, Nokia Networks and LM Ericsson, “Security Technologies and Secure Management for Future Networks”.

Security Technologies and Secure Management for Future Networks

The Business Case involves the development of a technical SDN environment. The development work will result in the creation of a test environment that companies, partner research institutions and institutes of higher education can utilise in their own research. The test environment will integrate NFV and SDN architectures into one functional entity that enables the investigation of business opportunities. Similarly, the test environment will facilitate the analysis of cybersecurity threats by utilising the Realistic Global Cybersecurity Environment (RGCE) developed at the Institute of Information Technology. The Business Case is also aimed at developing technical solutions based on current technologies.
