Modern Systems are usually obtained as incremental composition of proper (smaller and SMART) subsystems interacting through communication interfaces. Such flexible architecture allows the pervasive provisioning of a wide class of services, ranging from multimedia contents delivery, through monitoring data collection, to command and control functionalities. All these services requires that the adequate level of robustness and security is assured at End-to- End (E2E) level, according to user requirements that may vary depending on the specific context or the involved technologies. A flexible methodology to dynamically control the security level of the service being offered is then needed. In this perspective, the authors propose an innovative control architecture able to assure E2E security potentially in any application, by dynamically adapting to the underlying systems and using its resources to “build the security”. In particular, the main novelties of this solution are: i) the possibility of dynamically discovering and composing the available functionalities offered by the environment to satisfy the security needs and ii) the possibility of modelling and measuring the security through innovative technology-independent metrics. The results presented in this paper moves from the solutions identified in the pSHIELD project and enrich them with the innovative advances achieved through the nSHIELD research, still ongoing. Both projects have been funded by ARTEMIS-JU.
