Trustworthy Networked Platforms

Networked systems are inherently sensitive to attacks from hostile users outside and inside the network as well as direct physical attacks on the network nodes. Security is needed for all kind of devices within the network. The security expectations include communication integrity and confidentiality, secure device and user identification, and computing platform integrity. Especially, securing resource constrained devices is challenging. Similar, to combine convenient/low complexity network management with high security is demanding.CNS addresses these security issues through four network research objectives:

  • Usage of virtualization as an enabler for software platform protection
  • Provide a new architecture for secure remote management of distributed trustworthy platforms
  • Establish a CNS Security Experts Group
  • Social network based security services
