The EMSCB Project
European Multilaterally Secure Computing Base (EMSCB) aims at developing a trustworthy computing platform with open standards that solves many security problems of conventional platforms. The platform deploys
- hardware functionalities provided by Trusted Computing,
- a security kernel based on a microkernel and
- an efficient migration of existing operating systems.
In the sense of multilateral security, the EMSCB platform allows the enforcement of security policies of different parties, i.e., end-users as well as industry. Consequently, the platform enables the realisation of various innovative business models, particularly in the area of Digital Rights Management, while averting the potential risks of Trusted Computing platforms concerning privacy issues. The source code of the EMSCB platform will be published under an open source license.
|The EMSCB project is partly funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.
