Cloud Computing is an inevitable trend. In the near future almost every consumer electronic device will be connected to an ecosystem of third-party service partners, providing applications like payment systems, streamed content, etc using or producing sensitive data. The challenge is, that current cloud operators and their end users do not always trust each other. This lack of trust limits the potential of the cloud computing market. The TRESCCA project aims to lay the foundations of a secure and trustable cloud platform, by ensuring strong logical and physical security on the client devices, using both hardware security and virtualization techniques, while considering the whole cloud service architecture. The project will propose and demonstrate hardware/software solutions allowing stakeholders to delegate the processing of their sensitive data to a remote processing engine, opening up a new field of cloud services and applications. The TRESCCA approach avoids undesirable paradigm shifts, both in the software and in the hardware by complementing existing legacy solutions by non-intrusive add-ons.
