Advanced Cloud Infrastructures (ACI)

Description

The objective of the ACI module is to study system services for managing advanced cloud infrastructures. We will focus on the novel distributed cloud infrastructures supporting the new generation of mobile and IoT applications, specifically edge clouds, fog computing and Cloud-based IoT.
Privacy and security are important concerns in distributed cloud computing. After analyzing security and privacy threats in distributed clouds, we will present cutting-edge security monitoring systems for cloud-hosted information systems and systems implementing privacy by design in distributed cloud infrastructures in the context of cloud-based IoT.
