  journal={Future Gener. Comput. Syst.},
The recent emergence of cloud computing has drastically altered everyone's perception of infrastructure architectures, software delivery and development models. Projecting as an evolutionary step, following the transition from mainframe computers to client/server deployment models, cloud computing encompasses elements from grid computing, utility computing and autonomic computing, into an innovative deployment architecture. This rapid transition towards the clouds, has fuelled concerns on a… Expand

Dynamic trust enhanced security model for trusted platform based services
This paper argues that given the nature of both binary and property based attestation mechanisms, an attestation requester cannot be absolutely certain if an attesting platform will behave as it is expected to behave and proposes TESM, a hybrid trust model based on subjective logic to reduce such uncertainties.
