Although Cloud Computing promises to lower IT costs and increase users’ productivity in everyday life, the unattractive aspect of this new technology is that the user no longer owns all the devices which process personal data. To lower scepticism, the project SensorCloud investigates techniques to understand and compensate these adoption barriers in a scenario consisting of cloud applications that utilize sensors and actuators placed in private places. This work provides an interdisciplinary… 

A Trust Point-based Security Architecture for Sensor Data in the Cloud

This chapter presents the design and implementation of the main components of the proposed security architecture, a security-enhanced gateway at the border of the information sensing network, and evaluation results confirm the feasibility of this architecture with respect to the elastic, on-demand resources of today’s commodity Cloud offers.

The SensorCloud Protocol: Securely Outsourcing Sensor Data to the Cloud

The SensorCloud protocol is presented, which enables the representation of sensor data and actuator commands using JSON as well as the encoding of the object security mechanisms applied to a given sensor data item.

Sensor cloud: SmartComponent framework for reconfigurable diagnostics in intelligent manufacturing environments

The first steps in the development of a framework to address challenges and make Sensor Clouds a reality in the shop floor are presented, which reveal that the performance of the system is linear in terms of scalability, and from these scalability tests, the framework's robustness and consistent responsiveness are proved.

SensorCloud: Sociological Contextualization of an Innovative Cloud Platform

By reviewing main strands of cloud related research, central sociological research foci are identified which lead to an exploratory qualitative acceptance study focusing on Cloud Computing in general and its application in a smart home context in particular. A Comprehensive Approach to Privacy in the Cloud-based Internet of Things

This work presents a comprehensive approach to privacy that allows an individual user to enforce all her privacy requirements before any sensitive data is uploaded to the cloud, enable developers of cloud services to integrate privacy functionality already into the development process of cloud Services, and offer users a transparent and adaptable interface for configuring their privacy requirements.

Architecture for Privacy in Cloud of Things

This paper proposes an architecture for privacy in Cloud of Things, which allows the users to fully control the access to the data generated by the devices of their IoT networks and stored in the cloud.

Sensor Resource Sharing Approaches in Sensor-Cloud Infrastructure

This paper introduces sensor-cloud infrastructure and presents not only comprehensive technical issues like sensor description and publish/subscribe middleware but also applications using sensor- cloud infrastructure.

Cost Effective IoT Framework for Connected Sensors and Devices

This study has endeavored to state a vision statement for an architectural development of cost effective IoT framework that could connect various types of sensors and devices for an automated unit operation with the help of representational state transfer (REST) API developed by using windows communication foundation (WCF) framework.



A Cloud design for user-controlled storage and processing of sensor data

This paper analyzes and defines properties that a trusted Cloud design has to fulfill and presents the security architecture of SensorCloud, a proposed security architecture that enforces end-to-end data access control by the data owner reaching from the sensor network to the Cloud storage and processing subsystems as well as strict isolation up to the service-level.

Maintaining User Control While Storing and Processing Sensor Data in the Cloud

The authors introduce a well-defined entry point from the sensor network into the Cloud, which enforces end-to-end data protection, applies encryption and integrity protection, and grants data access, and enforce strict isolation of services.

Efficient and Scalable IoT Service Delivery on Cloud

This paper introduces the IoT PaaS architecture, on which IoT solutions can be delivered as virtual verticals by leveraging computing resources and middleware services on cloud and presents the detailed mechanism and implementation of domain mediation, which helps solution providers to efficiently provide domain-specific control applications.

myTrustedCloud: Trusted Cloud Infrastructure for Security-critical Computation and Data Managment

A use case is presented illustrating how the integration of Trusted Computing technologies into an available cloud infrastructure -- Eucalyptus -- allows the security-critical energy industry to exploit the flexibility and potential economical benefits of the Cloud Computing paradigm for their business-critical applications.

Towards Data Handling Requirements-Aware Cloud Computing

This paper identifies and discusses the challenges for enabling data handling requirements awareness in the (inter-)cloud, and shows how to extend a data storage service, AppScale, and Cassandra to followData handling requirements-aware cloud computing.

Towards Automated IoT Application Deployment by a Cloud-Based Approach

This paper proposes to employ TOSCA-a new standard for cloud service management-to systematically specify the components and configurations of IoT applications to demonstrate that, by using TOS CA, application models can be reused, and deployment processes can be automated in heterogeneous IoT system environments.

The Cloud Needs Cross-Layer Data Handling Annotations

This paper proposes to annotate data with sensitivity information as it leaves the control boundaries of the data owner and travels through to the cloud environment to signal privacy properties across the layers of the cloud computing architecture and enables the different stakeholders to react accordingly.

Controlling data in the cloud: outsourcing computation without outsourcing control

It is argued that with continued research advances in trusted computing and computation-supporting encryption, life in the cloud can be advantageous from a business intelligence standpoint over the isolated alternative that is more common today.

Engineering the cloud from software modules

The basic idea is to turn the notion of software module into a first class entity used for management and distribution that can be autonomously managed by the underlying software fabric of the cloud.

Research Challenges for Enterprise Cloud Computing

This paper discusses some of the research challenges for cloud computing from an enterprise or organizational perspective, and puts them in context by reviewing the existing body of literature in cloud computing.
