On the 30th of September 2019 the SCRATCh consortium has released their first project deliverable D1.1a, entitled “Requirements Specification” and containing the first requirements that outline the elements that conform SCRATCh: the methodology, the tools and the different use cases that will be used to validate the approach proposed in the project.

The deliverable, which is public and accessible in the project’s website and the ITEA portal , provides the following results:

  • The general work methodology of the requirements elicitation and analysis tasks, summarized in the following diagram

  • The first SCRATCh high-level requirements, coming from external sources such as the ENISA recommendations, that allow the project to be aligned with the most relevant security initiatives in the EU and the world.
  • The first low-level requirements, coming from the partners’ expertise and expectations for the project, which will permit to fine tune the different tools, methodologies and software artefacts that will comprise the overall framework.

In total, 68 requirements were collected by the authors of the deliverable, which is a promising start for the task. In future work, more requirements will be added to provide a comprehensive coverage of the needs of the project. In addition, an analysis methodology and software tools to connect the requirements to the development and testing processes will be proposed. This will be further expanded in future iterations of the work in deliverable D1.1b, due in February 2021. The current requirements are also the basis of tasks T1.2, T1.3 and T1.4 that will define the architecture of the toolkit, the devices and the communications in SCRATCh.
