SECAN-LAB: Security and Networking Lab

The SECAN-LAB is a research group which associates researchers and resources from the NetLab, hosted by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security Reliability and Trust (SnT) with members from the Computer Science and Communications Research Unit (CSC) at the University of Luxembourg, and with partners from industry and other research institutes. Research interests of the SECAN-LAB group focuses on interoperability and security aspects of spontaneously-created and self-organized non-centralized networks.

Other research topics of the SECAN-LAB lie in:

- interoperability of one-to-one communications,

- scalability of ad hoc networks with respect to its number of participants,

- tolerance of the network to a certain proportion of malicious and unfair participants,

- linking of ad hoc networks with wired LANs.

- interaction, games and novel interface technologies

- intelligent transportation systems (VehicularLab)


Latest News:

Research paper successful in the technology media and ZDNET have picked up the conclusions of a recent paper on verifying cloud services, co-authored by Gabriela Gheorghe (Secan-lab). Cloud service clients cannot yet test the security and dependability of cloud services, and this problem is growing bigger with important providers that are moving their business towards the cloud model. We are happy to see the expanding media coverage on this topic, as a first step towards starting to address the challenges together in the community. You can find the original paper in the ACM Digital Library, and the media reports on Forbes, ZDNET, as well as here.

Talk: User-controlled Storage and Processing of Sensor Data in the Cloud

Abstract: Ubiquitous sensing environments such as sensor networks collect large amounts of data. This data volume is destined to grow even further with the vision of the Internet of Things. Cloud computing promises to elastically store and process such sensor data. As an additional benefit, storage and processing in the cloud enables the efficient aggregation and analysis of information from different data sources. However, sensor data often contains privacy-relevant or otherwise sensitive information. For current cloud platforms, the data owner looses control over her data once it enters the cloud. Hence, a cloud design is required that the data owner can trust to handle her sensitive data securely. In this talk, we present the security architecture of the SensorCloud project. Our proposed security architecture enforces end-to-end data access control by the data owner reaching from the sensor network to the cloud storage and processing subsystems as well as strict isolation up to the service-level. We evaluate the validity and feasibility of our cloud design with an analysis of our early prototype. Our results show that our proposed security architecture is a promising extension of today's cloud offers.
