Trust Management in Edge Clouds with SCONE

Wednesday, 22 April 2020 | 11:00 am – 12:00 pm ET

Presenter: Professor Christof Fetzer

Dr. Christof Fetzer, Professor, TU Dresden

About the Webinar

Trust is arguably the most crucial challenge for critical services, both in deployment and when accessed over a network. These systems are exposed to a wide diversity of threats, ranging from bugs to exploits, active attacks, rogue operators, careless administrators or untrusted infrastructure providers. This webinar presents a powerful and generic approach to trust management using Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs). Our platform, SCONE, can operate as a managed service deployed in an untrusted environment. SCONE enables the delegation of operations to an untrusted provider while guaranteeing data confidentiality and integrity and safety even if the operator or the infrastructure is untrusted. We argue that one can execute even critical applications in edge clouds built from COTS hardware and software.

About the Speaker

Prof. Fetzer's research focuses on Trusted Execution and Dependable Computing. He is a co-Founder of Cloud&Heat GmbH, SIListra Systems GmbH, and Scontain UG. He has been a Professor at TU Dresden, Germany since 2004 and he received his PhD from the University of California, San Diego.
