Trusted Computing for the Java(tm) PlatformThe project Trusted Computing for the Java(tm) Platform refers to all efforts to make Trusted Computing services available for Java(tm) developers. Packages in Trusted Computing for the Java(tm) Platform are developed by the Institute for Applied Information Processing and Communications (IAIK).
From 2005-2009, the EU OpenTC project (Ref. Nr. 027635) supported the creation of the Trusted Computing for the Java(tm) Platform packages. The Open Trusted Computing (OpenTC) consortium was an R&D project focusing on the development of trusted and secure computing systems based on open source software. The project targeted traditional computer platforms as well as embedded systems such as mobile phones.
For more information about the OpenTC project please refer to www.opentc.net.
acTvSM is a research project supported by the Austrian programme FIT-IT Trust in IT Systems. acTvSM ties technologies such as Trusted Computing, Virtualization and Advanced API Design together to create and demonstrate a novel class of secure software services.
Trusted Computing for the Java(tm) Platform libraries and tools are now supported by this project and serve as essential catalysators for the development of the acTvSM platform.
The results of integrating Trusted Computing into the Java™ platform are published in a series of papers:
