Users rather move data to the cloud than purchasing another external storage medium. So far, no satisfactory solutions exist in terms of data security, so providers and users of cloud computing do not really have a trusting relationship.
On top of that, the classic encryption methods are suitable for data storage, but only in a very limited degree for further processing of security-critical data.
The EU project TRESCCA, which is coordinated by the German OFFIS - Institute for Information Technology, applies itself since October 2012 to the solution of these problems. The objective of the project is to secure network-enabled edge devices against software and hardware-based attacks.
By use of hardware security modules and virtualization with live migration to isolate individual processes, the basis for a secure and trusted cloud platform is created. Safety-critical applications can run in a secure environment on the user side and non-safety-critical ones can be outsourced to the cloud safely.
By doing so, the cloud provider can make sure that applications on the client side, such as smart metering are not compromised. The project develops and demonstrates a hardware / software solution that allows future users to delegate safety-critical tasks to external providers. Thus opens a whole new area of cloud services.
TRESCCA will last 36 months and is now starting after the successful kick-off meeting in early October in the first phase. The other international partners from science and industry are CoSynth GmbH, Institut Telecom-Mines, Virtual Open Systems SARL, Technological Educational Institute of Crete, ST Microelectronics Grenoble 2 SAS, Wellness Telecom SL. By involving an advisory board the project faces the external discourse.

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
