The context-aware adaptation of trustworthy systems, in particular with regard to its dependability and security properties is our contribution to the ITEA project Trust4All, which is developing a middleware software architecture specifically targeted at embedded systems that require a defined level of trust, due to the nature of the services they provide.
To enable this adaptation we use the frameworks and mechanisms developed in the preceding projects ROBOCOP and Space4U. The ROBOCOP project defined and implemented a middleware architecture especially suitable e.g. for mobile devices and PDAs, while the Space4U project extended this middleware with fault prevention, power management and terminal management, including secure downloading aspects.
The project is a joint effort of several European universities and companies. The research project at HIIT is a subcontract from Nokia Research Center.
The project ended at the end of 2007.
