Title:Virtualization and Trust in Mobile Cloud Computing".


Abstract: Nowadays, mobiles devices are part of our daily life. Unlike their limited resources, they offer various services to the user thanks to the Cloud computing that extends the resources of the mobile devices. This is commonly called mobile cloud computing. Cloud computing relies on the concept of virtualization, where VMs are used to host software, platform and infrastructure as services offered to the user. To alleviate the mobile devices from their intensive computation, one of the solutions is to offload the computation of the mobile devices into the Cloud. In addition, to implement the BYOD concept, mobile devices may host distinct VMs in order to deal with enterprise purposes while considering private concerns. This makes it possible to migrate VMs from mobile devices to the Cloud to achieve externalization. This environment based on VM everywhere, i.e. within the mobile device and the Cloud, requires to be trustworthy to allow its use by the user in secure way. To build a trust environment, the mobile cloud computing has to rely on hardware trusted platforms. This presentation will deal with how to build a trust environment, in mobile cloud computing, that manages VMs at rest and during migration.


Bio: Samia Bouzefrane is an Associate Professor at the Conservatoire National des Arts et M├ętiers of Paris. She received her PhD in Computer Science from the University of Poitiers (France) in 1998. After four years at the University of Le Havre (France), she joined in 2002 the CEDRIC Lab of CNAM where she worked on real-time and embedded systems. She is the co-author of many books (Operating Systems, Smart Cards, and Identity Management Systems). Her current research areas cover service architecture and security in mobile cloud computing, internet of things, and virtualization.


Room U.10



C-BRAIN MeetingsIn 2015/2016, the C-BRAIN (COPELABS BRAINstorming) meetings occur monthly, Tuesdays, 14h00-15h30, COPELABS, room U.0.10, ground floor of Building U, University Lusofona. C-BRAINs are motivated by the interdisciplinary nature of COPELABS, and are intended to assist in creating sinergies and giving rise to new ideas, in contexts where Informatics meets Psychology.


Our up-to-date list of events. Interdisciplinary meetings, workshops, and much more!

ummOur scientific repository holds the most recent work. COPELABS follows a pre-print open policy.

SITI - Informatics Systems and Technologies Group

SITI w400SITI is focused upon user-centric trends that are emerging in several fields of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), OSI Layers 2 and 3. As in other grassroots movements, the user will have an active say concerning services provided and consequently, concerning the techno-social environment that surrounds him/her.

CTIP - Technology Intensive Psychology Group

CTIP w400This group is based (i.e. integrated members) on a core of scientifically active researchers from the former CEPCA (Pedro Gamito, Jorge Oliveira, Rodrigo Brito, Paulo Lopes, and Ana Loureiro) 2 more recent PhDs (Cristina Camilo and Bárbara Gonzalez). Note, however, that the CEPCA team (team size, funding and indicators included in 5.) changed substantially since 2008, when it had 8 PhDs (of which only PG remains) and 5 groups. In 2011-13 the team grew to 14 integrated PhDs in 2-3 groups. By 2013, however, it was clear that the bulk of CEPCA output of international level (13 of the 14 indicators in table 5.) was the responsibility of the neurocognitive/cyber therapy-focused group, with only 3 PhD and 2 non-PhD members (PI: PG). The inevitable consolidation of CEPCA around this core group pointed to the desirability of joining forces with an informatics team – SITILABS – to create COPELABS as an interdisciplinary R&D unit (see Description of the R&D unit).
