Last updated: 2021-10-20 12:59

Strategic Goals

Specific technical concerns of data protection in the cloud mean that privacy and security by design approaches will no longer be sufficient, due to uncertainty at design time of how the cloud and privacy requirements may dynamically evolve and change at run time.

Solutions Developed / Used

Secure cloud computing is key for business success and end-user adoption of federated and decentralized cloud services and thus essential to stimulate the growth of the European Digital Single Market. RestAssured will provide solutions to specific technical concerns of data protection in the cloud (such as geo-location restrictions on personal data), which are imposed by the dynamic, multi-stakeholder and decentralized nature of federated cloud systems.
