Cloud computing has changed both business and everyday life, that’s a fact. Its technological capabilities offer numerous opportunities to cut costs, drive business innovation, and enable new consumer services.
March 2017 means M24 in our project timeline terminology. We have submitted four new deliverables and the second year of the project is over. So what?
So... many things really!
If you have been disconnected from latest project news, here's a few of them that you must become acquainted with:
TREDISEC aims at providing a set of security primitives that will ensure the confidentiality and integrity of the outsourced data and computations to the cloud. To help with the design of these primitives, towards the end of December 2015, we have identified the different TREDISEC requirements ranging from functional prerequisites to specific security and privacy needs. With this aim, the following methodology has been applied:
Most existing cloud security solutions are not well-suited in the market because they either provide security at the expense of the economy of scale and cost effectiveness of the cloud (e.g. data is encrypted before being outsourced, which prevents any computation to be performed in the cloud), or they meet the latter objectives at the expense of security (e.g., data deduplication and compression optimally use the resources of the cloud provider but require the customer to blindly trust its cloud provider).
We are living a fascinating moment in what concerns Security in the Cloud, and we would like to share it with you.
