Architecture for Distributed Data Collection for Management of Crisis Situations Using Trusted Agent Execution
Source: Technicka univerzita v Kosiciach
This paper proposes a distributed architecture designed for management of crisis situations where multiple actors are involved from various organizations with different competences and communicating over IP-based networks including wireless devices. In such settings requirements exist for secure communication and trusted collection of data from various sources. The primary role of agents in the proposed architecture is coordinated collection of information. In respect to requirements the overall agent infrastructure must be a secure, robust and fail resistant system. The required level of trust for agents is based on a special hardware module which provides trusted computing functionality.
