  1. MEDINA: First Impressions on Experimenting with Automated Monitoring Requirements of the Upcoming EU Cybersecurity Certification Scheme for Cloud Services .This whitepaper reports on lessons learned related to the experimentation performed by the MEDINA team on the topic of continuous (automated) monitoring, just as required by the High Assurance baseline of the draft version of the European Cybersecurity Certification Scheme for Cloud Service (EUCS). Besides the reported process and obtained results, we also provide a set of recommendations to relevant stakeholders (in particular Cloud Service Providers and Auditors) with the goal of supporting the uptake of EUCS for High Assurance.  Open access version
  2. An architecture proposal for the MEDINA framework .This whitepaper focuses on the description of the software and hardware architecture of the MEDINA framework, which has been designed and implemented during the first 18 months of the EU MEDINA project. Open access version
  3. EUROSCAL – Paving the Road Towards Automated Cybersecurity Certification in Europe. This whitepaper r introduces EUROSCAL, a MEDINA-driven initiative to promote the European use of NIST OSCAL (Open Security Controls Assessment Language) as a feasible solution for achieving interoperability and automating cloud security certification processes. Open access version
  4. The MEDINA Controlled Natural Language. This whitepaper provides an overview of the MEDINA Controlled Natural Language, which has been designed in the framework of the EU MEDINA project. This document highlights its pivotal role as a dedicated language designed to express requirements from schemes like the European Union Cloud Security Certification Scheme (EUCS) in a formal, machine-readable manner, to automate automatic compliance assessment for cybersecurity certification schemes. Open access version
  5. Metric Recommender System and the use of Natural Language Processing. This whitepaper provides an overview of the Metric Recommender system, which has been designed and implemented in the framework of the EU MEDINA project. This document highlights its role as a crucial component of the Cloud Security Certification Language toolchain and describes how Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques are exploited to reach the scope. Open access version
  6. Continuous Life-Cycle Management of Cloud Security Certifications. This whitepaper explores the challenge of managing cloud security certifications automatically and the complexities involved in deciding certification statuses through automation. The whitepaper focuses on the final parts of the MEDINA pipeline, i.e., the components that aggregate and evaluate assessment results, aggregate decisive data and translate them into a certificate status, and which publish and secure the certificate.
