RestAssured Network

Complementary projects related to Cloud Security




This project aims to speed up and iprove the security assurance prodecudes for applicatios connected to the UK NHS network by using models and machine reasoning. The focus is on modelling application networks and supporting analysis of risks to the application including risks of non-compliance with NHS regulartions, and exploitation of the resulting models for run-time compliance checking at an NHS-connected data centre.

Like RestAssured, ASSURED aims to exploit models created at design time to analyse and maintain security compliance at run-time in applications involving the collection and use of personal data.

DITAS - Data-intensive applications Improvement by moving daTA and computation in mixed cloud/fog environmentS

There is an increasing need to develop data intensive applications able to manage more and more amounts of data coming from distributed and heterogeneous sources effectively, quickly, correctly, and securely. However, the current adoption of Cloud Computing paradigm is not fully appropriate to store and analyse such data: latency, security, and compliance are all still significant barriers.

CloudPerfect - Enabling Cloud Orchestration, Performance and Cost Efficiency Tools for QoE Enhancement and Provider Ranking

Cloud environments are notorious for their lack of stability in performance characteristics, a feature that makes it extremely difficult for owners of time-critical applications to make the decisive step for migration and owners of SaaS to be unable to present performance vs cost trade-offs to their customers when acting as IaaS customers. CLOUDPERFECT will enable a) Cloud providers to enhance the stability and performance effectiveness of their infrastructures, through modelling/understanding of the overheads, optimal groupings of concurrently running services, runtime analysis and adaptation.

PrEstoCloud - Proactive Cloud Resources Management at the Edge for Efficient Real-Time Big Data Processing

PrEstoCloud project will make substantial research contributions in the cloud computing and real-time data intensive applications domains, in order to provide a dynamic, distributed, self-adaptive and proactively configurable architecture for processing Big Data streams.

EU Project 732339

UNICORN - A novel framework for multi-cloud services development, orchestration, deployment...

...and continuous management fostering cloud technologies uptake from digital SMEs and startups.

Unicorn aims to simplify the design, deployment and management of secure and elastic – by design - multi-cloud services. This will be achieved by a) development and design libraries that will provide security enforcement mechanisms, data privacy restrictions, monitoring metric.

EU Project 731846

ACTiCLOUD - ACTivating resource efficiency and large databases in the CLOUD

Despite their proliferation as a dominant computing paradigm, cloud computing systems lack effective mechanisms to manage their vast amounts of resources efficiently, leading to severe resource waste and ultimately limiting their applicability to large classes of critical applications that pose non-moderate resource demands. This creates a significant need to lift existing technological barriers of actual fluidity and scalability of cloud resources towards promoting cloud computing as a critical cornerstone for digital economy.

OPERANDO - Online Privacy Enforcement, Rights Assurance and Optimization

The goal of the OPERANDO project is to specify, implement, field-test, validate and exploit an innovative privacy enforcement platform that will enable the Privacy as a Service (PaS) business paradigm and the market for online privacy services. The OPERANDO project will integrate and extend the state of the art to create a platform that will be used by independent Privacy Service Providers (PSPs) to provide comprehensive user privacy enforcement
