Objectives of the Project
ATMOSPHERE is a 24-month project
aiming at the design and development of a
framework and a platform to implement
trustworthy cloud services on top of an
intercontinental hybrid and federated
Considering a broad spectrum of
trustworthiness properties and their measures.
Supporting the development, build,
deployment, measurement and evolution of
trustworthy cloud resources, data management
services and data processing services,
Demonstrated on a sensitive scenario of
ATMOSPHERE GOALS &
Trustworthiness Assessment &
Cloud services managing
federated and hybrid resources
Data Management Services
Pilot & Use
Trustworthiness is considered in its multiple
Security, Privacy, Coherence, Isolation, Stability,
Fairness, Transparency and Dependability.
Trustworthiness metrics define the
properties that can be evaluated in each one
of these dimensions
A priori and a posteriori evaluation of vulnerability,
performance, integrity, robustness, scalability, resource
consumption, fairness, isolation, etc.
Enabling creating self-adaptive applications
Tracing the degree of compliance of regulations such
as the EU-GDPR
Privacy protection, traceability, confidentiality warning,
A hybrid and federated platform to evaluate trustworthiness
Considerng both Virtual Machines and LxD containers as first class hypervisors.
Develop a federation model for LXD containers providing an AAI based on existing IdPs, a synchronized
repository of microimages, a CLI and a service specification for managing the whole platform.
Execution of applications through a function-oriented Dashboard.
Federated Network management beyond the boundaries of the sites,
Providing Network as a Service NFV and facing issues such as the scarce of public IPs.
ATMOSPHERE will offer a multi-site network federation
mechanism to enable the migration of configured
resources without needing to change IP
configuration and securely isolating
multi-tenant federated networks.
Considering containers as first-class
resources for network federation.
Hybrid federated container
ATMOSPHERE not only measures trustworthiness but provides a set of
services to improve it.
A Distributed Data Management Platform will be developed such services as
storage, retrieval, update and access of data in a cloud, guaranteeing
features such as confidentiality and revocation and access authorization.
Policy engines for Secure Data Management.
Based on enclaves and focusing
on SQL and NoSQL Databases.
Privacy preservation and
Distributed Trustworthy Data
PSFT in DTDMS
Forgotten PSFT date
A layer of data analytic techniques implemented as a set of building blocks,
as well as a framework for the development of applications from the building
blocks on top of the Data Management Platform.
Trustworthy evaluation in design and
Evaluation of privacy risks, estimation of
execution deadlines for a given resource
Detailed monitoring for the evaluation of
performance, fairness, robustness and
scalability with adaptive measures.
Trustworthy Data Processing
The use case of the project focuses on telemedicine based on the processing
of echocardio images
Depending on the features of the images and the processing services, different risks can
Processing services that could lead to the identification of personal data must comply a
higher level of protection.
Application will serve to measure trustworthiness a priori and dynamically in a
broader sense, which will enable creating self-adaptive applications and
tracing the compliance of regulations such as the EU-GDPR.
Applications that cannot reach a defined level of
certification can be still trustful for specific operations
with lower risks, such as pure anonymised data, best
effort computations and long-term research.
ATMOSPHERE will provide
A definition of Trustworthiness
A platform to measure such
