Privacy and Security Maintaining Services in the Cloud

PRISMACLOUD yields a portfolio of novel security enabled cloud services, guaranteeing the required security for sensitive data in the cloud. Techniques for outsourcing computation with verifiable correctness and authenticity-preservation allow to securely delegate computations to cloud providers.

A distributed multi-cloud data storage architecture shares data among several cloud providers and improves security and availability. Dynamically updating shares by means of novel techniques avoids vendor lock-in, preserves data authenticity, facilitates long term privacy and promotes a dynamic cloud provider market.

The PRISMACLOUD work program is complemented with activities addressing secure user interfaces, secure service composition, secure implementation in software and hardware, security certification, and an impact analysis from an end-user view.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 644962.
