SUNSEED proposes an evolutionary approach to utilisation of already present communication networks from both energy and telecom operators. These can be suitably connected to form a converged communication infrastructure for future smart energy grids offering open services. Life cycle of such communication network solutions consists of six steps: overlap, interconnect, interoperate, manage, plan and open. Joint communication networking operations steps start with analysis of regional overlap of energy and telecommunications operator infrastructures. Geographical overlap of energy and communications infrastructures identifies vital DSO energy and support grid locations (e.g. distributed energy generators, transformer substations, cabling, ducts) that are covered by both energy and telecom communication networks. Coverage can be realised with known wireline (e.g. copper, fiber)or wireless and mobile (e.g. WiFi, 4G) technologies. Interconnection assures end-2-end secure communication on the physical layer between energy and telecom, whereas interoperation provides network visibility and reach of smart grid nodes from both operator (utility) sides. Monitoring, control and management gathers measurement data from wide area of sensors and smart meters and assures stable distributed energy grid operation by using novel intelligent real time analytical knowledge discovery methods. For full utilisation of future network planning, we will integrate various public databases. Applications build on open standards (W3C) with exposed application programming interfaces (API) to 3rd parties enable creation of new businesses related to energy and communication sectors (e.g. virtual power plant operators, energy services providers for optimizing home energy use) or enable public wireless access points (e.g. WiFi nodes at distributed energy generator locations). SUNSEED life cycle steps promise much lower investments and total cost of ownership for future smart energy grids with dense distributed energy generation and prosumer involvement.

The EU has lost a significant share of the electronics manufacture sector to the Far East, resulting in a negative trade balance of >100bn/year within this sector. This is (in part) due to the current manufacturing technologies that are based on subtractive processing that are expensive, wasteful and energy intensive, making manufacture in the EU economically and environmentally unfeasible. Printed electronics is set to revolutionise the electronics industry by enabling direct, additive processing that significantly reduces capital and operating costs as well as massively reducing process hazardous chemical waste and energy. Currently the EU dominates the innovation and technological know-how in printed electronics. It is very important that this intellectual capital that Europe developed is translated to direct economic benefits by ensuring that manufacture is retained within the EU. However, there are barriers that are preventing widespread adoption of printed electronics including the availability of cost effective, high performance electronic inks, lack of awareness of end-users and lack of integration of individual printed components into large systems. PLASMAS directly builds on world-leading nano-materials, printing and display device technologies developed and patented by the consortium members. Our consortium is unique in that it covers the entire supply chain and also in terms of its ambition. PLASMAS directly addresses the current commercialisation barriers by demonstrating the capability of technology (based on novel copper and silicon inks with favourable cost to performance ratios) through development of printed circuit boards and printed logic as well as displays with printed copper and silicon-based back panels and established self-emissive OLEDs and reflective low power Electro-Chromic elements. PLASMAS will make a significant step forward in commercialising these technologies and ensuring that the commercial benefits are maximised for the EU.

A system for performing electronic transaction includes: a payment terminal including a human interface module, a first processor, and an internal bus for connecting these elements; a host terminal connectable to the human interface module through a connection; and a security module. The human interface module includes a keyboard, a display, a card reader for reading and authenticating a bank card or credit card. The host terminal includes a second processor, a memory, and a power supply. A transaction terminal task manager is included in the first security module, the first security module being hosted in the host terminal. The human interface module executes transaction phases under control of the security module, and executes security treatments, totally autonomously from the host terminal. The security treatments include presentation of a PIN code to the bank card or credit card.

The present invention relates to a method to establish a secure voice communication session between two user equipments with the help of a dedicated Network Application Function (NAF) and at least one Bootstrapping Server Function. A session key is calculated from bootstrapping service derived external or internal NAF keys of the first and the second user equipments. A secured voice communication is established using the calculated session key.
