Description

Research Questions

Are there general guidelines for the application of secure computation techniques that could enable the improvement of data-intensive applications with ATM?

Research Scope

SecureDataCloud provides a new paradigm to deal with confidentiality issues without limiting the ability of performing relevant computation of private data: the use of secure computation techniques.

The use of secure comptutation would enable the improvement of data-intensive applications within Air Traffic Management, starting with actual research activities. Among others, these include safety, allowing analysts to mine some specific pattern inside historical data, without actually accessing the data sets and thus ensuring confidentiality; understanding global properties of air transport, as for instance the number of passengers in a given route, or actual fuel consumptions; or improving the cooperation between airlines, fostering mechanisms such as slot bidding.

Expected Results

SecureDataCloud aims at providing general guidelines for the application of secure computation techniques as well as proposing the means ofg applying those guidelines to support different business needs. SecureData Cloud also aims to create a Software Reference Framework, providing functions, algorithms and protocols that will constitute the starting ground for anyone beginning a new development.
