ASSURED will be showcased at the next TCG Members physical meeting taking place in Washington, USA, on July 16-18, 2022. The project will be represented by DTU (Benjamin Larsen) and UBITECH (Thanassis Giannetsos, Project Technical Coordinator). The two project partners will present the latest project activities in the field of trusted computing, such as the new attestation schemes, revocation schemes, as well as the use of DAA for enhancing the level of assurance of a device’s wallet when managing and issuing verifiable credentials and presentations.
More specifically, they will present the work done on the design of novel attestation mechanisms and their use also in the SSI domain for enhancing the security of identity management schemes. For the former, the focus will be given to the novel device integrity and control-flow verification schemes designed while also protecting the privacy against various implementation disclosure attacks (through the use of zero-knowledge). For the latter, the current work on leveraging hardware-based tokens and Direct Anonymous Attestation (DAA) for protecting the issuance and management of Verifiable Credentials will be presented (based on the design of the ASSURED TPM-based Wallet).
Overall, the goal is to not only discuss the latest advancements in trusted computing but also to highlight the need for such enhanced trust assessment in emerging application domains and use cases that further solidify the need to convert next-generation smart systems into a chain of secure tokens with verifiable proof on their correct operation.
