Abstract

Developing new security paradigms, architectures and software, for more secure and trustworthy ICT systems and services has clear social, scientific and market motivation. This motivation is becoming stronger due to the changing threat landscape; over the past decade we are witnessing an ever-increasing amount of cyberattacks on the Internet. We believe that to advance the field of cybersecurity, we must act proactively and in synergy, instead of being reactive to cyberattacks. We propose SHARCS, a framework for designing, building and demonstrating secure-by-design applications and services, that achieve end-to-end security for their users. SHARCS achieves this by systematically analyzing and extending, as necessary, the hardware and software layers in a computing system. This holistic approach is necessary, as no system can truly be secure unless every layer is secured, starting from the lowest one. We measure the effectiveness of the SHARCS framework by using it on a diverse set of security-critical, real-world applications. The applications have been chosen from three different domains, medical, cloud and automotive, to demonstrate the platform independence capabilities of SHARCS. SHARCS provides a powerful foundation for designing and developing trustworthy, secure-by-design applications and services for the Future Internet.
