RePhrase - REfactoring Parallel Heterogeneous Resource-Aware Applications - a Software Engineering Approach


The focus of the RePhrase project is on producing new software engineering tools, techniques and methodologies for developing data-intensive applications in C++, targeting heterogeneous multicore/manycore systems that combine CPUs and GPUs into a coherent parallel platform. Data-intensive applications are one of the most important and commonly encountered classes of industrial application. Such applications are often potentially highly parallel and are a clear match to emerging heterogeneous parallel architectures.

RESTASSURED - Secure Data Processing in the Cloud

RestAssured provides a reference architecture for protecting sensitive data and applications in a cloud environment by supplying secure enclaves and sticky policies for data protection that migrate across the cloud with the data. Additionally, the overall security of the end-to-end service is analyzed by models@runtime and risk analysis tools.


RAPID - Heterogeneous Secure Multi-level Remote Acceleration Service for Low-Power Integrated Systems and Devices

RAPID proposes, for the first time, a secure unified model where almost any device or infrastructure, ranging from smartphone, notebook, laptop and desktop to private and public cloud can operate as an accelerated entity and/or as an accelerator serving other less powerful devices in a secure way. At the same time, RAPID offers a registration mechanism, which permits the accelerated entities to automatically find and connect to nearby accelerators with the required resources.

SPECS - Secure Provisioning of Cloud Services based on SLA Management

The “as-a-service” approach, which delegates all kinds of resources to remote cloud service providers (CSPs), calls for new security methodologies that introduce security mechanisms and controls in a modular way. This is the base notion behind SPECS security-as-a-service offering.

S-CASE - Scaffolding Scalable Software Services

Me and my friend are co-founders in a small mobile dev shop.

Our tech expertise is on the development of mobile apps, but for almost all of our projects, we need some back-end services running on the cloud in order to upload or download user data and contact 3rd party web services, like some weather services we needed in our latest app.
