Securing Information Transfer within Distributed Computing Environments

Pearson, Siani; Casassa Mont, Marco; Novoa, Manny

External - Copyright Consideration

Keyword(s): trusted computing; secure migration

Abstract: Today, personal and confidential information is stored on a broad variety of enterprise data resources. This data needs to be secured and protected. Technology must adapt to mitigate the new threats and risks arising from the trend towards dynamic enterprises, adaptive data centres and on-demand allocation of resources. Applications and services are becoming mobile across multiple resources, sometimes in a dynamically allocated way, necessitating migration of sensitive and private data. In this article we propose a policy-driven data protection system to address the inadequacies of current technological solutions in preserving the confidentiality and privacy of data whilst it is migrated between platforms. More specifically, we describe our solution for securing migration of credentials that we are developing for productization. Publication Info: IEEE Security and Privacy Magazine, 2007
