Imperial College London embarks on cloud security research push with Abu Dhabi tech hub

Imperial College London is working with the Abu Dhabi-based Technology Innovation Institute to create an operating system (OS) that is intended to change the way datacentre operators secure their cloud technology stacks. The two organisations are embarking on a three-year programme of research that they claim will culminate in the creation of a “trustworthy” cloud OS designed for use in heterogenous off-premise environments, built around ARM and RISC-V architectures. Shreekant Thakkar, doctor and chief researcher at the Technology Innovation Institute’s Secure Systems Research Centre, said that the reasons for focusing its efforts on these types of architectures is because they are “likely to play a more significant role in future datacentres and cloud environments”. Thakkar added: “The research project with Imperial College aims to find solutions based on AArch64, and it fits nicely with other research and use cases as SSRC is doing a lot of work on ARM-based and RISC-V platforms and on OS in phones and drones.
