Leader of the group Computer Security: Marten van Dijk.

The Computer Security group contributes to making our society a safe place with digital and physical infrastructures that can be trusted to have the best interest of citizens and industry in mind. Our work constructively contributes new mechanisms and solutions to security problems.

We are committed to bringing rigorous cryptographic style thinking to security engineering. We study, analyze, and design secure computing environments from various perspectives such as secure processor architectures and cyber physical system security but also secure machine learning functionalities. We provide a holistic approach and use various techniques for reasoning about security, safety, and resilience ranging from formal methods to cryptographic proofs.

Dutch Secure Autonomous Cloud: Nederlands initiatief voor veilige cloud

Dutch Secure Autonomous Cloud: Nederlands initiatief voor veilige cloud

In een interview met AG Connect schetst Marten van Dijk (CWI) samen met Herbert Bos (VU) en Cees de Laat (UvA) plannen voor zijn initiatief om een Dutch Secure Autonomous Cloud (DUSAC) op te zetten. "Wij willen een eigen vertical stack bouwen, specifiek gericht op het veilig gebruiken en verwerken van data. En dat levert Nederland meer op dan alleen maar een veilige cloud".

The Hague Conference Centre

For the fast pace at which organizations are digitizing, the cloud is indispensable. Recently, the use of cloud-based services has grown enormously. Data centers and workplaces are often powered by the cloud. Valuable data can be accessed directly via the Internet. This gives a lot of flexibility, but what does this mean for security?

How do you know if your data is safe in the cloud? What can you do about this yourself and what is the responsibility of the cloud provider? During the AG Connect Cloud Security Congress 2021 you will hear the latest developments from experts and receive tips from current practical cases.

During the program, Marten van Dijk, head of CWI's Computer Security research group, will enter a discussion with Tom Jessen (chairman of the day) about 'The Future of Cloud Security' and the Dutch Secure Autonomous Cloud (DUSAC) initiative to ensure future security of the cloud (16.00-16.30h, in Dutch).
