ITEA projects: the European R&D co-operation in software

ITEA (Information Technology for European Advancement) program


Bull was a founding member of the ITEA program in 1998 with other large European manufacturers: Alcatel, Barco, Bosch, Daimler Chrysler, Italtel, Nokia, Philips Electronics, Siemens, Thales and Thomson Multimedia. ITEA's objective is to develop on-board and distributed software to give European manufacturers a real advantage.


The ITEA program defines:

In 2002, Bull gained the award for the most innovating Open Source project within the PEPiTA framework. The PEPiTA project gave rise to JOnAS and to some Java components enabling security management in a Web environment that Bull Evidian integrated into its AccessMaster offer. In addition, this project contributed to making European companies and administrations aware of Open Source solutions.


Two other projects, ATHOS (Advanced platforms and TecHnologies for the Offer of communication Services) and TESI (Trusted European Security Infrastructure), were achieved respectively in September 2002 and June 2003. In its OpenMaster offer, Bull Evidian uses the ATHOS platform, which enables ensuring the quality of services under IP (Internet). From the TESI project, Bull Evidian uses TrustWay, the encryption software to make secure the connection between the workstations and the TrustWay box as well as the central administration of VPN or SSL boxes.
