The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) has proposed the binary attestation mechanism that enables a computing platform with a dedicated security chip, the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), to report its state to remote parties. The concept of property-based attestation (PBA) improves the binary attestation and compensates for some of its main deficiencies. In(More)
The Trusted Computing Group (TCG) has issued several specifications to enhance the architecture of common computing platforms by means of new functionalities, amongst others the (binary) attestation to verify the integrity of a (remote) computing platform/application. However, as pointed out recently, the binary attestation has some shortcomings, in(More)
Grid applications have increasingly sophisticated functional and security requirements. However , current techniques mostly protect only the resource provider from attacks by the user, while leaving the user comparatively dependent on the well-behavior of the resource provider. In this paper, we take the first steps towards addressing the trust asymmetry by(More)
With the growing use of the Internet, users need to reveal an increasing amount of private information when accessing online services , and, with growing integration, this information is shared among services. Although progress was achieved in acknowledging the need to design privacy-friendly systems and protocols, there are still no satisfactory technical(More)
Electronic health records (EHR) are a convenient method to exchange medical information of patients between different healthcare providers. In many countries privacy laws require to protect the confidentiality of these data records and let the patient control the access to them. Existing approaches to protect the privacy of EHRs are either insufficient for(More)
Identity theft has fostered to a major security problem on the Internet, in particular stealing passwords for web applications through phishing and malware. We present TruWallet, a wallet-based authentication tool that improves previous solutions for protecting web-based authentication. In contrast to other wallet-based solutions, TruWallet provides (i)(More)
Mobile Storage Devices, such as USB flash drives, offer a flexible solution for the transport and exchange of data. Nevertheless, in order to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data, many enterprises require strict security policies for the use of such devices with the effect of rendering their advantages rather unfruitful.
