The Trustworthiness Monitoring and Assessment Platform (TMA) is the component that instantiates the ATMOSPHERE Trustworthiness Framework and is responsible for monitoring and actuating upon trustworthiness information by capturing such information using probes and executing adaptation plans using actuators based on the defined lifecycle.

The goal: 

To demonstrate how the TMA can be used in practice to monitor trustworthiness properties (using scalability as example) and execute adaptation actions in order to maintain the desired levels of trustworthiness

The challenge: 

This demo works both as a proof of concept for the TMA Framework architecture and the evaluation of the mechanism proposed for scalability monitoring and assessment.

The Impact: 

The demostration showed that runtime information can be collected and used to perform adaptation actions to maintain thr desirable levels of trustworthiness

Without atmosphere: 

Developers had to develop their own monitoring and adapation infrastructure

With atmosphere: 

TMA can be easely integrated in new applications, enabling the collection of trustworthiness information, their analysis, and the execution of adaptation actions. Developers only need to implement specific probes and actuators based on the templates provided.
