PRISMACLOUD and its partner project CREDENTIAL are organizing a Workshop on Security, Privacy, and Identity Management in the Cloud at this year's ARES conference, the 11th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security in Salzburg/Austria.
The workshop will provide a platform to discuss topics 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?
- And is it possible to give back users full control over their data, i.e., let them decide when and to whom they are revealed?
The scientific and technical director of SAFECLOUD Hugues Mercier will be the keynote speaker in our SECPID EU Symposium. During his presentation, he will talk about "Building a Secure and Resilient Cloud Architecture: Theoretical and Practical Challenges behind the SAFECLOUD Project".
More about Hugues Mercier:
Hugues Mercier received the B.Sc. degree in mathematics from Université Laval, the M.Sc. degree in computer science from the Université de Montréal, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of British Columbia, Canada, in 2008. From 2008 to 2011, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and at McGill University. Currently, he is a research associate at the Université de Neuchâtel in Switzerland. My current interests are the applications of coding theory, information theory, combinatorics, and algorithms to the study of communication networks. He is the scientific and technical director of SafeCloud.
