EMC has joined the Daoli Trusted Infrastructure Project which conducts research into “trust and assurance” in cloud computing environments. EMC joins a growing global research team that today includes four of China’s leading technical universities including Fudan University, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), Tsinghua University, and Wuhan University. The team’s research will focus on cloud computing, trusted computing and virtualization.
The research will explore a variety of techniques that could be applied to secure the underlying physical location as well as broadly shared resources.
“The team is exploring the convergence of several key technologies including cloud computing, trusted computing and virtualisation,” said Burt Kaliski, director of EMC’s Innovation Network. “It will look at how they might be applied to provide high-assurance software environments inside and outside the enterprise. The Daoli Project will help us understand what our customers are likely to encounter in the future, and we look forward to sharing the knowledge this research will generate.”
Participants will share findings with researchers worldwide by way of a wiki hosted by Tsinghua University in Beijing.
Details of the research are expected to be discussed at the third annual Asia-Pacific Trusted Infrastructure Technologies Conference in China in October.
