#/research and development

We are successfully connecting and strengthening cooperation between science-research organizations on one hand and economy in the field of information services on the other. For this purpose, we have registered our own research group Institute for Data and Information Systems Security (IVPIS) in 2006. Each time we apply for a research or development project, we have in mind that research and development are very important segments for companies and are the lead for innovation and competitiveness of the Slovenian economy. The effectiveness of research and development projects have also increased the recognition of our company.

Projects

    1. Digital forensics and its role in judicial proceedings
      Important information for understanding the aspects of the legal profession and practices on digital forensics and its current and future role in judicial proceedings was gained. Also, the current extent of use of the digital forensics methods in criminal justice was analyzed.

      Project duration: from 2006 until 2008
      Participants: Viris (applicant), Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in Maribor, Faculty of Criminal Justice and Security

    2. Planning the integration of databases for protection and rescuing
      In the context of the targeted research project “Producing interactive state protection and rescue plans in electronic form with integration into the information system of protection and rescuing” the first steps for computer support in connecting all state protection and rescue plans were made.

      Project duration: from 2006 until 2007
      Participants: Viris (applicant), Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

    3. A model of an information system for Slovenian colleges
      In the context of the targeted research project we have developed a model of an information system that takes into account aims of the strategic operations of the higher educational system, the needs of managing the data, overseeing of the indicators of higher educational system, and good practices of the Ministry of Education and Sport.

      Project duration: 2009
      Cooperators: School of Advanced Social Studies in Nova Gorica, Viris (contractor), Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

    4. Information system for journaling golf tournaments – Golfriend
      Calculating the results of the golf tournament by the use of paper and pencil is not an easy task. Under the aegis of the development project we have developed software for users, a centralized server system, an internet portal for monitoring the tournament history and statistics, and for creating a community of users of the projected information system.

      Project duration: from 2009 until 2010

    5. Dynamical analysis of Android applications – Vaccine
      Number of mobile applications is rising and Android still holds large market share. As these numbers of applications grow, we need better tools to understand how applications work and how to analyze them. There is always a question if we can trust mobile applications to do only what they are allowed to do and if they are really secure when transmitting our personal information to different servers. Therefore we developed a tool Vaccine for the purpose of dynamical analysis of Android applications. With Vaccine it is possible to access and change variables of the running application and even execute methods at runtime, it also provides an effective framework to analyze the behavior of the application at different circumstances. Latest source code is available at github.
