Trusted, heterogeneous, and autonomic mobile cloud

Flavio Lombardi, Roberto Di Pietro

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Offloading computing to distributed and possibly mobile nodes is increasingly popular thanks to the convenience and availability of cloud resources. However, trusted mobile computing is not presently viable due to a number of issues in both the mobile platform architectures and in the cloud service implementations. The complexity of such systems potentially exposes them to malicious and/or selfish behavior. This chapter describes the state-of-the-art research on theoretical advancements and practical implementations of trusted computing on a mobile cloud. Further, mobile distributed cloud computing security and reliability issues are introduced. Discussed solutions feature different levels of resiliency against malicious and misbehaving nodes.
