Attribute-Based Encryption (ABE) is a powerful cryptographic tool that allows fine-grained access control over data. Due to its features, ABE has been adopted in several applications, such as encrypted storage or access control systems. Recently, researchers argued about the non acceptable performance of ABE when implemented on mobile devices. Indeed, the(More)
Software Defined Networking (SDN) is a new networking architecture that aims to provide better decoupling between network control (control plane) and data forwarding functionalities (data plane). This separation introduces several benefits, such as a directly programmable and (virtually) centralized network control. However, researchers showed that the(More)
In recent years, the growing belief that the current IP-based Internet is becoming obsolete prompted several research efforts that aim to design potential next-generation Internet architectures. Named Data Networking (NDN), an instantiation of the content-centric approach, is one such effort. In contrast with their IP counterparts, NDN routers maintain a(More)
Large numbers of smart connected devices, also named as the Internet of Things (IoT), are permeating our environments (homes, factories, cars, and also our body - with wearable devices) to collect data and act on the insight derived. Ensuring software integrity (including OS, apps, and configurations) on such smart devices is then essential to guarantee(More)
The Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is a key component of future Smart Grids, which allows fine-grained and real-time monitoring of the energy consumption of private houses or entire buildings. In an AMI, intelligent devices, namely Smart Meters (SMs), communicate with a Utility Provider (UP) for both management and billing purposes. However, this(More)
The Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) is a fundamental component of modern Smart Grids, and allows fine-grained and real-time monitoring of the electricity consumption of utility customers. In an AMI, intelligent devices commonly called Smart Meters (SMs) communicate with an operation center for the purpose of management and billing. However, while on(More)
—The Internet Protocol (IP) is the lifeblood of the modern Internet. Its simplicity and universality have fueled the unprecedented and lasting global success of the current Internet. Nonetheless, some limitations of IP have been emerging in recent years. Its original design envisaged supporting perhaps tens of thousands of static hosts operating in a(More)
Large numbers of smart devices are permeating our environment to collect data and act on the insight derived. Examples of such devices include smart homes, factories, cars, or wearables. For privacy, security, and safety, ensuring correctness of the configuration of these devices is essential. One key mechanism to protect the software integrity of these(More)
