Cryptographic tools for cloud security
Cryptographic Tools for Cloud Security is a collaborative project funded by the Norwegian Research Council from 2016 to 2019. It will study new cryptographic tools to enable cloud security against powerful attackers. The research involves experts at Norwegian University of Science and Technology and University of Bergen, in cooperation with University of Mannheim.
The new cryptographic primitives, protocol and models which we will develop will lead to theoretical advances as well as practical outcomes. We are following the current important trend in cryptographic research to connect rigorous results strongly to real-world usage. This is now both possible and timely given that a level of maturity has been reached in cloud computing which will allow us to demonstrate the practical effectiveness of our proposals, to complement their theoretical analysis.
