Trust is built based on guarantees, previous successful experiences, transparency and accountability. Yet, to-date, the technologies and frameworks necessary to raise confidence on cloud and Big Data applications is still lacking. It is crucial to create this confidence to encourage different business sectors to take up this technology and ultimately improve business efficiency and competitiveness. The ATMOSPHERE project focuses on this issue.
ATMOSPHERE will provide a solution to assess trustworthiness of cloud applications dealing with data and support the development of more trustworthy cloud applications.
Provide a solution to assess trustworthiness of cloud applications dealing with data and support the development of more trustworthy cloud applications
Co-funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 -
Overview 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 a federated
intercontinental hybrid and resource pool.
Considering a broad spectrum of trustworthiness
properties and their measures
Security, Privacy, Coherence, Isolation, Stability,
Fairness, Transparency and Dependability.
Supporting the development, build, deployment,
measurement and adaptation of trustworthy cloud
resources, data management services and data
Demonstrated on a sensitive scenario of
ATMOSPHERE GOALS &
A Hybrid federated VM and container platform
A development framework with three sets of services
Trustworthy evaluation and monitoring framework
Trustworthy Distributed Data Management
Trustworthy Distributed Data Processing
A pilot use case on Medical Imaging
Two CLOUDSCAPE-Brazil events
Exploiting the legacy of
Trustworthy Data Processing Services (TDPS)
Distributed Trustworthy Data Management Services
Cloud & Container Services Management Layer
A hybrid and federated platform
Resource providers requiring federating multiple sites.
Application managers who need to measure the
integrity, privacy risk, performance.
Application developers to ease the development and
maintenance cycle of applications with guarantees on
performance a privacy and fairness.
Heterogeneous resources (Virtual Machines and LxD containers as first class hypervisors) and GPGPUs.
Customizable and isolated virtual federated networks providing federation-level NFV services
Considering containers as first-class resources for network federation.
Hybrid federated container
Providing application developers with two layers of services to build up Data Analytic
applications and a service to evaluate trustworthiness in design and runtime.
Distributed Data Management Services for storage, retrieval, update and access of
data in a cloud
Guaranteeing features such as confidentiality and
revocation and access authorization based on policies.
Based on enclaves and focusing on SQL and
Services to develop data analytic applications
as a set of composable building blocks.
Evaluating Privacy risks and estimating execution
deadlines for a given resource allocation.
Detailed monitoring for the evaluation of performance, fairness, robustness and scalability with
Distributed Trustworthy Data
