Over the last years, the computing paradigm has experienced a massive shift from local to cloud-based applications. As a result, users and organizations do no longer have full control over their data and services, but they rely on third-party cloud providers.
This development poses various challenges concerning the integrity and confidentiality of data as well as the privacy of users of such systems. Currently, no satisfactory solutions to these challenges exist, which is a roadblock for the large-scale deployment of cloud-based applications handling sensitive data such as electronic health records.
The aim of this symposium is to provide a platform to discuss innovative ideas related to the following questions: How can cloud services be made more trustworthy? How can we build distributed systems without single point of failure or trust? How to design end-to-end secure services in an untrusted environment? Which methodologies and technologies are required to integrate security and privacy by design? Is it possible to give back users full control over which data they want to reveal when and to whom?
This workshop is organized by the H2020 projects PRISMACLOUD and CREDENTIAL, and it is supported by the DPSP cluster, in particular by the H2020 projects, MUSA, PaaSword, SERECA, SecureCloud and WITDOM.
This workshop will be held in conjunction with the ARES EU Projects Symposium 2017, held at the ARES 2017
