SUPERCLOUD

User-Centric Management Of Security And Dependability In Clouds Of Clouds

 

Mission of SUPERCLOUD:

SUPERCLOUD aims to support user-centric deployments across multi-clouds, enabling the composition of innovative trustworthy services, to uplift Europe’s innovation capacity and thus improve its competitiveness. SUPERCLOUD will thus build a security management architecture and infrastructure to fulfil the vision of user-centric secure and dependable clouds of clouds.

 

Motivation:

Despite many benefits in terms of business, distributed cloud computing raises many security and dependability concerns. At stake are an increase in complexity and a lack of interoperability between heterogeneous, often proprietary infrastructure technologies. The SUPERCLOUD project proposes new security and dependability infrastructure management paradigms that are:
  • user-centric,
    for self-service clouds-of-clouds where customers define their own protection requirements and avoid lock-ins and
  • self-managed,
    for self-protecting clouds-of-clouds that reduce administration complexity through security automation.
