This paper describes the goals of the ATMOSPHERE project, which is a multi-institutional research and development (R&D) effort aiming at designing and implementing a framework and platform to develop, build, deploy, measure and evolve trustworthy, cloud-enabled applications. The proposed system should address the federation of geographically distributed cloud computing providers that rely on lightweight virtualization, and provide access to heterogeneous sets of resources. We discuss some preliminary results, including the architecture that has been proposed to address these challenges...

Frequently users have to provide personal information for being able to use web applications and services. They are commonly confronted with a privacy policy that they must accept, implicitly trusting the provider organization to protect their privacy.

Trustworthiness in data analytics and cloud services comprises a broad range of properties. Dimensions such as Security, Privacy protection, Quality of Services, Reliability, and Fairness impose tackling a set of challenges at different layers. ATMOSPHERE has designed a software architecture to provide performance simulation...
