Certain examples described herein provide a data processing system and method adapted for event processing. These examples provide for distribution of data processing operations between server computing devices (120). In one case, a plurality of processing stages (132) are implemented using computing instances on the server computing devices. In this case, the computing instances (150) are assigned to the server computing devices in order to perform at least one data processing operation in parallel. Certain examples described herein then provide for the distribution of data between computing instances such that parallelism is maintained for data processing operations. In certain cases, a composite key is used. In this case, a composite key value is computed for a set of data fields associated with a data item to be processed. This key value is computed based on a data processing operation to be performed. The key value is used to route the data item to an associated computing instance implementing the data processing operation.


A method for attaching a binding system to an inwardly facing side of a cover is described. The binding system is operable to bind a spine end of a collection of physical media sheets to the cover. The binding system has a datum stop (30) protruding away from the inwardly facing side of the cover, and the datum stop has a datum stop surface against which a head end or a tail end of the collection is registerable prior to binding the collection to the cover. The method comprises positioning and registering the physical media sheet collection against the datum stop surface, and then binding the spine end of the collection of physical media sheets to the cover through the binding system.

In an example, a print media transport apparatus (100) comprises a plurality of pallets (102) having a self-propulsion mechanism, and being to support print media. The pallets may circulate on an endless track comprising a printing zone (106), a descending zone (108) and an ascending zone (110). A controller (112) may control the self-propulsion mechanisms of the pallets such that a pallet on the descending zone is at least partially supported by another pallet which is ahead on the track, and a pallet on the ascending zone is at least partially driven by pallet which follows on the track.

A web-application-launch application programming interface (API) component is disclosed for integration to a web application executable at a client. The web-application-launch API component comprises a launch services module to manage execution of a launch of a web application external to the web application. Execution of the launch of the external web application is called by a component of the web application. The web-application-launch API component further comprises an API specifying a launch-definition format applicable to a launch to be executed by a launch services module. A launch definition according to the specified launch-definition format includes a launch argument comprising a list of keywords. The launch services module comprises a keyword-resolution module. The keyword-resolution module of the launch services module is responsive to a call for execution of a launch to resolve, dynamically, the keywords of the launch argument in the launch definition of the called launch. The launch services module comprises an execution portion to implement execution of a called launch. The launch is executed at the client in accordance with the keywords in the launch argument of the called launch as resolved by the keyword-resolution module when execution of the launch is called.

Nowadays, cybercrime is one of the most relevant and critical threats to both the economy and society in Europe. Establishing efficient and effective ways to protect services and infrastructures from ever-evolving cyber threats is crucial for sustaining business integrity and reputation as well as protecting personal and sensitive data. To that end, the SHIELD project proposes a universal solution for dynamically establishing and deploying virtual security infrastructures into ISP and corporate networks. SHIELD builds on the huge momentum of Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV), as currently standardised by ETSI, in order to virtualise security appliances into virtual Network Security Functions (vNSFs), to be instantiated within the network infrastructure using NFV technologies and concepts, effectively monitoring and filtering network traffic in a distributed manner. Logs and metrics from vNSFs are aggregated into an information-driven Data Analysis and Remediation Engine (DARE), which leverages state-of-the-art big data storage and analytics in order to predict specific vulnerabilities and attacks by analysing the network and understanding the adversary possibilities, behaviour and intent. The SHIELD virtual security infrastructure can either used by the ISP internally for network monitoring and protection, but it can also be offered as-a-service to ISP customers; for this purpose, SHIELD establishes a vNSF Store, i.e. a repository of available virtual security functions (firewalls, DPIs, content filters etc.) from which the ISP customers can select the ones which best match their needs and deploy them to protect their infrastructure. This approach promotes openness and interoperability of security functions and offers an affordable, zero-CAPEX security solution for citizens and SMEs. Moreover, SHIELD services can be easily scaled up or down, configured and upgraded according to customers needs, as opposed to security solutions based on monolithic hardware.

C3ISP mission is to define a collaborative and confidential information sharing, analysis and protection framework as a service for cyber security management. C3ISP innovation is the possibility to share information in a flexible and controllable manner inside a collaborative multi-domain environment to improve detection of cyber threats and response capabilities, still preserving the confidentiality of the shared information. C3ISP paradigm is collect, analyse, inform, and react. In order to achieve the aforementioned goals, the project aims to create an efficient and flexible framework for secure data analytics where data access and data analytics operations are regulated by multi-stakeholders data sharing agreements. In particular, C3ISP will: facilitate the definition, analysis, management, enforcement and dissolution of data sharing agreements; going from high level descriptions (close to natural language) to system enforceable data usage policies; consider the most appropriate data protection techniques used in the analytics infrastructure, from data centric policy enforcement mechanisms to homomorphic encryption techniques that enable to work directly on encrypted data (considering also intermediate solutions as anonymization techniques); address key challenges for compliant sharing of cyber security related information. By taking a compliance by design approach, the project places an early emphasis on understanding and incorporating regulatory requirements into the data sharing agreements. validate the framework through four Pilots covering several relevant areas as enterprise security, governmental CERTS, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and, in particular, for SMEs interested in holistic cyber protection solutions (including managed security services). The project Consortium combines strong industry players with research institutions that will deliver high quality innovation; it also includes SMEs and digital innovation promoters.
