TPMCC2014 – The International Workshop on Trusted Platforms for Mobile and Cloud Computing

Call for Papers

With the emergence of new information and communication technologies, smart devices combined with communication infrastructures such as Internet and mobile networks need to provide reliable services.

For this purpose, many application domains with high social and business impact such as personal healthcare, intelligent transportation, home automation, mobile payment, surveillance, may use mobile devices that rely on trust environment. This trust environment may be provided or based on many hardware platforms (such as SIM cards, secure elements for NFC, TPM (Trusted Platform Module)) or software platforms such as TEE (Trusted Execution Environment). Even if these trust platforms are extremely constrained in terms of energy, computational power and memory, they are designed to solve major constraints of security, safety, reliability, efficiency and quality of service.

The most important challenges are:

i) the definition of architectures, protocols and algorithms to design trust systems while involving mobile devices and/or cloud computing, and

ii) the development and the management of platforms and services that are open, secure, and interoperable to interconnect mobile devices.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together practitioners and researchers from both academia and industry in order to have a forum for discussion and technical presentations on the recent advances in theory, application and implementation of trusted platforms for mobile and/or cloud computing: technologies, protocols, algorithms, applications and services, standardisation initiatives and user experience.

The topics of interest target trusted platforms for either mobile computing or cloud computing. They include the following:

  • trusted and service platforms
  • frameworks and middleware
  • System architectures and software management
  • Communication protocols
  • Security and Privacy
  • Identity management
  • New applications and services: context-aware applications, chip-to-Cloud based applications, Cloud on chip, etc.
  • Programming models and abstractions
  • Mobility management
  • Experimental prototypes
  • Performance evaluation and validation
  • etc.
