D1.1 Initial MUSA Framework Specification

This deliverable presents the initial version of the overall MUSA framework architecture, including the intended usage scenarios, along with the derived project requirements that will guide the MUSA research and implementation work. The deliverable is born from the collaboration of all project participants and it serves as a common project reference across all the technical work packages. The deliverable contains also a glossary that defines the main concepts handled in the project. Both the architecture and glossary are evolving descriptions that will be kept updated to ensure the alignment with the actual implementation of the framework.

D1.2 Guide to Security Management in Multi-cloud Applications Lifecycle

This is a guide to security management in multi-cloud applications lifecycle. It is a first draft of best practices and guidelines to multi-cloud application developers and operators. It describes the MUSA framework’s impact on integrated and holistic management of application security across the whole life cycle. There are descriptions of MUSA activities, how they relate to a case study example, what is meant by multi-cloud security and an initial lifecycle description and its relationship to MUSA framework.

D2.1 Initial SbD Methods for Multi-cloud Applications

This deliverable includes the initial description of the mechanisms and tools that MUSA offers to define the security constraints of a multi-cloud application, in order to support a security-by-design (SbD) development process. Since the adopted SbD approach is based on Security SLAs as a means to express the security requirements of a multi-cloud application and of each of its components, the deliverable provides a discussion of the Security SLA model adopted in MUSA and illustrates the SLA Generation process, aimed at building components’ Security SLAs. In order to support this process, the document introduces an SLA Generation proof-of-concept application, which applies a risk categorization and assessment procedure to each component and uses state-of-art Security Control Frameworks for the identification of their security requirements.


D5.1 MUSA Case Studies Work Plan

This document describes the plan for the realization of the two business case studies envisaged in MUSA project, the Case study A: Airline flight scheduling application by LHS partner and Case study B: Smart mobility services by TUT partner. The document describes the two applications and details the specific requirements for the case studies implementations, as well as the methodologies used for the work plan for carrying out the evaluation of MUSA framework in such business settings together with the evaluation methodology. The document also includes the description of the consent procedures and privacy ensuring mechanisms that will be implemented in the case studies.


D6.1 MUSA Brochure and Public Website

This deliverable refers to the materials that contain at this stage basic information about the project: the project website and the brochure. The website will be extended with the project results and related events. The brochure will be printed and used as first dissemination material during fairs, conferences, workshops and similar events dedicated to the MUSA project or covering similar subjects.

D6.2 Dissemination Strategy

The deliverable describes MUSA dissemination plan that details actions and common guidelines to ensure and monitor the quality of the dissemination activities. The main objective of this document is to illustrate the dissemination strategy that was elaborated during the first six months of the project. The strategy primary copes with the definition of core messages to pass to the target communities and the definition of the target communities themselves that might potentially be interested by the MUSA results. The strategy also includes the definition of a detailed plan and list of dissemination activities and the key performance indicators that will be continuously monitored to ensure the effectiveness of the plan

D6.3 Data Management Plan

This deliverable describes the policy adopted for the management of data produced during the project activity. It described the types of data the project will generate/collect, which standard will be used, how and in which cases the data will be exploited, shared and/or made accessible to others, how the data will be curated and preserved, even after the project duration.

D6.4 Communication Plan

The Communication Plan specifies how to approach and interact with different target communities for dissemination of the MUSA project results. The plan provides details on communication methods for each of the communities. The aim of outlined communications processes is to support dissemination of the project results to maximise impact, and to learn from other related activities and projects in order to develop and improve the MUSA solution.

D6.5 Networking Plan

This deliverable aims at illustrating the MUSA networking plan. This plan details the specific networking activities with both internal and external actors to MUSA project. The internal networking activity aims to explore collaborations and knowledge exchange among MUSA partners and individuals, while the external networking activity aims to link the project to the community of stakeholders interested in the MUSA results, as well as to create synergies with other ICT projects under the same EU-ICT objective, increasing the impact of the ICT initiative.

D6.6 Dissemination, Communication and Networking Report

This deliverable describes the dissemination and communication activities followed during the first eighteen months of the project as well as the results from these activities. Moreover, this document updates project’s initial dissemination and communication plans. The document also presents the relevant networking activities executed to foster a close collaboration with projects related to MUSA, and future networking plans.

D6.7 Data Management Report

This deliverable describes the policy adopted for the management of data produced during the project activity. This deliverable includes the second release of the Data Management Plan and supersedes the previous one (D6.3 Data Management Plan). It describes the types of data the project will generate/collect, which standard will be used, how and in which cases the data will be exploited, shared and/or made accessible to others, how the data will be curated and preserved, even after the project duration.

D7.1 Initial Market Study

This deliverable presents a detailed analysis of the target market of the MUSA solution, focusing on the main sectors that may influence the MUSA developments and that will guide their exploitation. The deliverable constitutes the first step towards a thorough exploitation plan that will be developed based on the findings of the present study. The document covers the MUSA context analysis, the definition of the MUSA value proposition, the value chain description, the MUSA targeted sectors and competitors analysis.


D7.2 Business Scenarios Analysis

This document introduces the MUSA key results from a business perspective that will be used as a reference guide to orient the MUSA results to a business-attractive approach. The Osterwalder Business canvas is used as a reference model to illustrate the diverse aspects of the potential MUSA business scenarios. Together with the business scenarios analysis, an overview of the IPR registry that the consortium has created to keep track of the property rights on the MUSA exploitable outcomes is presented.

D7.5 Standards Analysis and Strategy Plan

This deliverable presents the most relevant standards identified for the MUSA solution and the designed strategy for their adoption and inclusion in MUSA.

D7.6 Revised Standards Strategy Plan

This deliverable updates deliverable D7.5 Standards analysis and strategy plan with new developments in cloud computing standards identified as relevant for adoption within MUSA project and analyses which other standards have appeared in the context of the project since the initial plan. Some areas have changed in the 9 months after the previous report, e.g. TOSCA has moved on and so has CSC. This deliverable reports back on changes and outlines the management of the standards observatory going forward.
