WHEN: August 29 – September 1, 2017

WHERE: Reggio Calabria, Italy

The 2nd Workshop on Security, Privacy, and Identity Management in the Cloud to be held in conjunction with the ARES EU Projects Symposium 2017, held at ARES 2017.

This workshop is organised and promoted by PRISMACLOUD and CREDENTIAL, two of the H2020 projects part of the DPSP Cluster that brings together more than 20 European research and innovation projects in the area of data protection, security, and privacy in the cloud. It aims at joining forces to maximize efficiency, visibility, and impact of the member projects. SECPID 2017 will in particular be supported by ESCUDO-CLOUD, MUSA, PaaSword, and WITDOM.



Over the last years, the computing paradigm has experienced a massive shift from local to cloud-based applications. As a result, users and organizations do no longer have full control over their data and services, but they rely on third-party cloud providers.

This development poses various challenges concerning the integrity and confidentiality of data as well as the privacy of users of such systems. Currently, no satisfactory solutions to these challenges exist, which is a roadblock for the large-scale deployment of cloud-based applications handling sensitive data such as electronic health records.

The aim of this symposium is to provide a platform to discuss innovative ideas related to the following questions:

  • How can cloud services be made more trustworthy?

  • How can we build distributed systems without single point of failure or trust?

  • How to design end-to-end secure services in an untrusted environment?

  • Which methodologies and technologies are required to integrate security and privacy by design?

  • Is it possible to give back users full control over which data they want to reveal when and to whom?
