The Complex Cyber Infrastructure (CCI) group is part of the Informatics Institute at the University of Amsterdam. CCI focuses on the complexity of man-made systems on all scales. Cyber Infrastructure is rapidly evolving from relatively simple fixed components to programmable and virtualized objects with many degrees of freedom, owned, operated and governed by different entities in multiple administrative domains interacting on the Internet. Harnessing this complexity in a transparent, trust-able way for safe and secure data processing is a major research topic that defines the focus of CCI research. The challenges are addressed by combining methods and results from research into distributed data processing, programmable networks, policy reasoning and normative control, hardware and cryptographic security, and software language engineering.
The paper titled Exploring the Enforcement of Private, Dynamic Policies on Medical Workflow Execution by Christopher A. Esterhuyse, Tim Muller, Thomas van Binsbergen, and Adam S. Z. Belloum was accepted at 18th IEEE eScience Conference 2022: Democratizing Science.
The paper titled On Achieving Privacy-Preserving State-of-the-Art Edge Intelligence by Daphnee Chabal, Dolly Sapra, and Zoltan Mann was accepted at 4th AAAI Workshop on Privacy-Preserving Artificial Intelligence. Abstract: Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) Inference in Edge Computing, often coined Edge Intelligence, requires solutions to insure that sensitive data confidentiality and intellectual property are not revealed in the process.
Join our team! We have an open position in the broad area of security and privacy. The position can be filled on the level of either Assistant Professor or Associate Professor.
How can the privacy of health-related personal data be preserved, while using data analysis and machine learning for innovative medical approaches? What privacy-preserving techniques should be used and how, to achieve given privacy and utility objectives?
A symposium entitled ‘From Systems and Networks to Complex Cyber Infrastructures’ took place on 9th December 2022 in honor of Cees de Laat and Leon Gommans. On the one hand, Cees de Laat, the former Chair of CCI, retired recently.
