CommNet2 PhD Spring School
26th to 28th of March 2018, Sheffield, United Kingdom
The CommNet² Spring School is a regular event targeted at PhD students which, this year, was hosted by the University of Surrey in Guildford, UK with a focus on wireless security. In his talk, Dr. Ronald Toegl of Infineon Technologies Austria AG , gave an introduction to Trusted Computing. The main technology discussed was the Trusted Platform Module, with topics of channel vs. device security, TPM features, core concepts like the chain of trust and the applicability in network computing settings (with examples). Supporting components like the TSS were also introduced and the advances of hardware security (including cryptographic features), also in future settings, discussed. The following discussion with the students was especially fruitful.
In his talk, Dr. Thanassis Giannetsos from the Department of Computer Science, Surrey University , presented the main security and privacy challenges in IoT Edge Computing, focusing on the core edge devices, i.e., sensors, vehicles and mobile phones. He described how the use of trusted computing technologies (especially TPMs) can be used towards establishing and managing trust between entities, starting from bi-lateral interaction between two single system components and continuing as such systems get connected to ever larger entities. A more in-depth discussion revolved around the design of architectures that can support the use of software- and hardware-based attestation towards corroborating the fundamental security and privacy properties of such devices and how they can be transferred to statements on the security properties of hierarchical compositions of Systems-of-Systems.
