There currently exist no satisfactory approaches to protect data during computation from cloud providers and from other users of the cloud. PRACTICE is a consortium research project that will aim to provide privacy and confidentiality for computations in the cloud. PRACTICE will create a secure cloud framework that allows the realization of advanced and practical cryptographic technologies providing sophisticated security and privacy guarantees for all parties in cloud-computing scenarios.
The project began in November 2013 and will run for 3 years. The overall budget of the project is approximately 7,500,000 Euros, and our portion of the budget is approximately 700,000 Euros.
