Communication Middleware for Monitoring Financial Critical Infrastructure
About CoMiFin

Communication Middleware for Monitoring Financial CI (CoMiFin) is an FP7 project. The main purpose of the CoMiFin STREP is to strategically target the EU technological and institutional lag in financial infrastructure protection (FIP). Specifically, CoMIFin aims to provide “an infrastructure level monitoring, notification and mitigation” middleware as an essential element of FIP. CoMiFin aims at supporting business continuity of a financial actor on top of an unmanaged network of managed financial infrastructures under all foreseeable failure scenarios including the operational failures and deliberate breaches. This is a nontrivial task requiring a holistic and cooperative approach across multiple elements of a financial infrastructure, such as disparate financial and telco networks, various middleware platforms, and other interconnecting components.
