Abstract: Big data applications are among the most suitable applications to be executed on cluster resources because of their high requirements of computational power and data storage. Correctly sizing the resources devoted to their execution does not guarantee they will be executed as...

Abstract: Cloud federation, in the last years, has grown rapidly in literature because to its multiple advantages to coordinate and re-use different services across multiple sites, different geographic locations or cloud providers. This article presents a federated network architecture and focuses on the multi-tenant overlay...

Abstract: The adoption of cloud computing is continuously increasing due to the attractiveness of low costs of infrastructure acquisition and maintenance, as well as having virtually infinite resources available for scaling applications based on demand. Due to the increasing interest in this topic, there is a continuos search for better, more cost-effective ways to manage such infrastructures. One...

Cloud services consumers deal with a major challenge in selecting services from several providers. Facilitating these choices has become critical, and an important factor is the service trustworthiness. To be trusted by users, cloud providers should explicitly communicate their capabilities to ensure important functional and non-functional requirements (such as security, privacy, dependability,...

Most of the modern cloud web services execute on top of runtime environments like .NET’s Common Language Runtime or Java Runtime Environment. On the one hand, runtime environments provide several off-the-shelf benefits like code security and cross-platform execution. On the other hand, runtime’s features such as just-in-time compilation and...

Trustworthiness is a paramount concern for users and customers in the selection of a software solution, specially in the context of complex and dynamic environments, such as Cloud and IoT. However, assessing and benchmarking trustworthiness (worthiness of software for being trusted) is a challenging task, mainly due to the variety of application scenarios (e.g., business critical, safety-critical),...

The growing complexity of software makes it difficult or even impossible to detect all faults before deployment, and such residual faults eventually lead to failures at runtime. Online Failure Prediction (OFP) is a technique that attempts to avoid or mitigate such failures by predicting their occurrence based on the analysis of past data and the current state of a system. Given recent technological developments, Machine Learning (ML) algorithms have shown their ability...

The widespread misuse of cryptography in software systems is the most frequent source of cryptography-related security problems. Several misuses of cryptography have been found to be recurrent in software in general, resulting in vulnerabilities exploitable in real attacks. There is a huge gap between what cryptologists see as misuses of cryptography and what developers see as unsafe use of cryptographic technology. This chapter contributes to fill this gap by addressing the...
