A merger between LAND and the subsidiary D.LAND is being completed, for which many of the collaborators will become employees.


Research and Development activities carried out

Below are some of the projects carried out in recent years divided into funded and unfunded projects.


  • LAND participated in the MiSE project called Trust for Food (T4F), Concession Decree Prog. N. F/200071/03/X45 CUP B71B20000770005 COR 2155577 of 1/7/2020, with a duration of 24 months. Trust for Food is a research and development project in the field of application sectors consistent with the National Strategy of Intelligent Specialization (SNSI) Agrifood. The Trust for Food Project had the objective of creating a system that would provide the guarantee of the uniqueness of a product and the certain traceability of the operations carried out in the production systems of the food chain, for each individual product package. 

  • LAND participated, as a Technological Partner, in the European Horizon 2020 project called eMORE – MOnitoring and REporting online hate speech in Europe lasting 24 months (2017/2018) in the context of projects to prevent and combat racism, xenophobia, homophobia and other forms of intolerance.

  • Between 2011 and 2013, LAND participated, as Manager and Coordinator, in the European Project (7th Framework Programme) called SIGNED (Secure Imprint GeNerated for PapEr Documents). In addition to LAND, two other European SMEs (Bit Oceans for Spain and GSI for the United Kingdom) and two research centers (University of Tor Vergata for Italy and Gradiant for Spain) participated in the project.

  • In 2010, LAND, in collaboration with the CNR-IAC (Mauro Picone Calculus Institute) and the University of Tor Vergata, developed VirtualParent, a parental control program for MSN chats, financed with regional funds from FILAS.

  • In 2007, LAND participated in Research and Development activities with Intesa/San Paolo at the Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (ISMB) of the Polytechnic of Turin, which had as its objective the digital redesign of the "Cartless Banking Branch".


  • "Single Original Document" DOU with which it was intended to develop an innovative method of generating hybrid documents (manageable with the same level of security in both digital and analog) digitally signed using standard QR Code two-dimensional graphic codes (ISO/IEC 18004 :2006).

  • FEA model (Advanced Electronic Signature), which can also be used with mobile devices, a new and innovative model that uses a software layer made up of experimental algorithms, also with the use of the Glyph, which will allow applying a FEA without using the techniques and technologies currently at the state of the art (such as graphometrics), but at the same time simplifying the affixing process and responding to current regulations.

  • Public PDSV (Public Document Status Verification) with which an innovative method has been developed, like the CRL (Certification Revocation List of QTSPs [formerly Certification Authority] used to manage the status of Qualified Electronic Signature Certificates), which allows monitoring and the management of the states (status) of the individual documents circulating even outside the digital compendiums of the Clients.

  • Sign Automation or Automation of Signatures for the management of complex Signature Cycles. In particular, the research activities have addressed the management of signature chains with the abstraction for activities concerning the cryptographic object (which is already at the state of the art), but using the concept of willingness to subscribe in a more ample. The research focused on the intermediate control activities when the various objects leave and re-enter a controlled digital context (internal or external to the issuing subject).
