Trustworthy Clouds - Privacy and Resilience for Internet-scale Critical Infrastructure

The goal of the TClouds project is to provide a computing and network platform to enable resilient and privacy-enabled deployment of Internet-scale critical information and communication infrastructures. The aim is to provide this while addressing the challenges of cross-border privacy, end-user usability, and acceptance, which are essential for wide deployment of such an infrastructure.

Our contribution to the TClouds project concentrates on the following aspects:

Security-enhanced Cloud Components

Clouds Computing services are based on individual components such as storage, networks, and virtual machines. We aid in securing these components to prevent data leakage and improve the resilience of applications and individual machines. In order to achieve these goals, we focus on specialised run-time environments and tailored virtualization support.

Middleware for Adaptive Resilience

Our task is the development of approaches for resource-efficient intrusion-tolerant services and to focus on implementation of reactive behaviour to address attacks and faults. This will be realized by defining programming interfaces with specific focus on virtualization and checkpointing of applications. Furthermore, the outcomes of the security-enhanced cloud components will be integrated and tested.
