Protecting Sensitive Data in the Computing Continuum

FogProtect delivers new and advanced architectures, technologies, and methodologies for ensuring end-to-end data protection across the computing continuum, from cloud data centres through fog nodes to end devices. The FogProtect solutions are generic and can be used in multiple contexts to support many types of applications and services.

FogProtect combines four main technology innovations: (1) secure data container technology for data portability and mobility, (2) data-protection-aware adaptive service and resource management, (3) advanced data protection policy management, (4) dynamic data protection risk management models and tools.

Three complementary real-world use cases demonstrate the applicability of FogProtect solutions to multiple contexts and the impact of the project’s novel solutions for data protection: smart cities, smart manufacturing and smart media. FogProtect provides the essential building blocks to empower data protection, supporting resilience, trustworthiness and human-centricity in the Next Generation Internet.

FogProtect is a collaboration between 9 partners from 8 countries: UBIWHERE (Portugal) coordinating the project; ATC (Greece); IBM (Israel); UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHAMPTON (UK); NOKIA (Germany); THALES (France); TU WIEN (Austria); UNIVERSITY OF DUISBURG-ESSEN (Germany); VRT (Belgium).

ATC will lead the integration activities for the delivery of the FogProtect framework and will jointly work with VRT in the validation of the framework tools in the media sector through the smart media use case scenario.
The project started in January 2020 and will last for 36 months.
