The NSA spying scandal boomed people's eagerness to enhance the security and privacy of their data, especially in clouds. In this seminar, we are going to show you the latest technology provided by both academia and industry, for implementing Trusted Computing in Clouds. From hardware to software, our seminar covers the most crucial and critical topics:

  • Trusted Virtualization and Isolation
  • Minimized TCB
  • Trusted Storage in Cloud
  • Cryptography as a Service (CaaS)
  • Trusted Mobile Platforms
  • Hardware extensions such as ARM TrustZone and Intel SGX

This seminar will be given in English. Each participant will take one or more papers under a specific topic. Participants are responsible for a peer review, including:

  • Attend peer's presentation dry run and give feedback.
  • Review peer's report before submission.
