TMA is the trustworthiness monitoring and assessment solution for the ATMOSPHERE ecosystem. It includes an overall trustworthiness framework, with the relevant trustworthiness properties and metrics, the specification of the trustworthiness assessment lifecycle, and the requirements for the monitoring platform. It also includes the measurement and analysis services for the continuous assessment of the trustworthiness metrics based on the monitored data.
IT users in critical infrastructures (assets that are essential for the functioning of a society and economy), such as the healthcare sectors and public administrators. Researchers and practitioners working on the design/development of trustworthy cloud‐based systems.
It allows handle heterogeneous data while providing high portability & interoperability. It can be used to deploy a federation wide server to be used by developers to assess the trustworthiness of their applications, or used by applications themselves.
An holistic approach to cloud trustworthiness. TMA provides users with an infrastructure, data management and services that are more user-centric, protecting legal rights, including the aims of the GDPR in terms of increasing trust, fairness and transparency.
The National Institute of Space Research (INPE) is an institution responsible for space research in Brazil. Currently, INPE is improving its Brazilian Environmental Data Collection System (BEDCS) to replace the system's satellites by nanosatellites (a new technology called CubeSat). For this end, INPE is envisaging to distribute the Database (called SINDA) all around the world. For this new model, it is important to use federated cloud computing technologies, improving the security. The TMA will be used to monitor different trustworthiness properties, with special focus on QoS and security aspects.
