LSEC - Leaders In Security

Welcome to LSEC, an internationally renowned Information security cluster, a not for profit organization that has the objective to promote Information Security and the expertise in BeNeLux and Europe. Founded by the University of Leuven (K.U. Leuven), supported by European Commission FP7 and leading a unique PAN European Private partnership that interacts with Public Institutions, LSEC connects security industry experts, research institutes and universities, government agencies, end users, funding bodies and technical experts who are driving national and European research agendas. LSEC activities aim to raise cyber security awareness, support innovation and competitiveness of the European IT- Security market and promote the visibility of its members.

(26.10.2020) How can 3 companies work together on the same encrypted data? LSEC launches the COOCK COED.

threshold keys

On December 2nd LSEC and KU Leuven - COSIC launch the COOCK project COED : "Computing on Encrypted Data".

The COOCK program is an initiative by VLAIO, the Flemish governmental organization that supports innovation in Flanders. After a competition in 2020, COED was selected as one of the projects to transfer this unique scientific knowledge about using cryptographic mechanisms such as Full Homomorphic Encryption (FHE) and Multi Party Computation (or Secure Multi Party Computation - MPC) for industrial and societal applications. 

The main goal of the COOCK (Collective Research and Development Knowledge Transfer) project is to achieve the launch and development of a number of innovations amongst Flemish companies  which have received inspiration, influences, information and support by the COED-project over the next three years. LSEC is reaching out to its 650+ member companies, and 15000+ end user organisations (both enterprise, industry and government) to help identifying use cases and jointly develop solutions and innovations. 

This state of the art technology is highly relevant in today's fast adoption to cloud computing, data protection (GDPR)-challenges, (public) open data opportunities and industrial data exchange ideas. It can try to answer the challenge on how to be able to do processing on data which have been encrypted in the cloud, in doing analysis over the data contents without revealing the data itself. Consider how we currently process consented personal data, which needs to remain private to the entity that obtained the consent for it, but likes to use an analytics company in the cloud to present the whereabouts of the individuals on a map - again without revealing the identity and personal data of these individuals. 
Another easier example is how to obtain the average of 10 individuals which have encypted their wages, are not able to see the wage of the other persons, but having a system that calculates the average wage of the person. 

The technologies allow for many different use cases and ideas. With COED, we provide some technologies and tools to experiment, we provide some use cases and facilities to assess which technology to use to obtain the most cost-effective results. With COED we support the innovation of our Members and key stakeholders in their challenges on tranforming digital and moving to the cloud. 

• Become part of the User Group and 
• Join in one or more of the inspiration sessions for Technology and Services companies or Enterprise or Government End Users;
• Launch your business ideas and use cases on Open Data initiatieves in Flanders, and receive a premium reward

Find out more about COED in our projects section, or explore the COED website. Get in touch with us about your idea and concepts at coed at lsec.eu.

CISO Roundtables 2020


Together with our indudstry partners and members we hold on a regular basis virtual and face to face high level operations discussions, allowing executives and officers to exchange experiences, share ideas, discuss challenges, seek opportunities, or just learn from each other's actions and approaches. The discussions happen on a limited number of participants, by invitation only and aim to raise the level of awareness, interactions and feed the Information Sharing and Analysis Center activities and developments. 

If you'd like to be part of our group of experts and meet with your peers, you're invited to participate freely, by registering. One of our team members will contact you personally to discuss your key challenges and you're interests. We'll be inviting you shortly to one of our next roundtable sessions.
