Security and data protection issues are a significant barrier to wider use of cloud platforms. PaaSword aims to reduce those barriers by providing trusted, secure storage on cloud services. It will use encryption, advanced policy-based placement and context-aware access control to realize secure, trusted cloud storage.
SixSq will use SlipStream as a “Platform as a Service” to demonstrate how the project’s storage components can be deployed easily as part of a larger, web-based application. On one hand, SlipStream is a use case for the project, but SixSq will also enhance SlipStream with features to facilitate the implementation and use of PaaSword storage components.
