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.



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.
