I have been interested in security in distributed systems for some time. Mostly of late that's been explored through looking at applications of Trusted Computing technologies, particularly in cloud, mobile, and embedded applications - embodied now in the concept of the Internet of Things. With my students, I have been looking for the architectural elements and design patterns necessary to make trusted clouds and secure IoT a reality. These ideas have the potential to transform how we think about distributed systems and the security of information.
