The IoT vision is characterized by the proliferation of smart connected devices (e.g., smartphones, smart watches and other connected appliances surrounding the users) on top of which run a variety of applications. Examples of such applications include participatory sensing applications where citizens voluntarily use their sensory devices to capture and share sensed data from their surrounding environments to monitor a given phenomenon. In this context, it became a priority to devise mechanisms which allow users to securely access IoT services without fearing that their data will be leaked out from the cloud platforms where it is being stored and processed. A possible solution which is gaining grip in recent years is the principle of "code moving to data". Indeed, data scientists have realized that in many scenarios moving computation close to the data may be cheaper than uploading the data close to the computation, leading to the onset of the Edge Computing paradigm. In the context of Machine Learning (ML), this paradigm was instantiated under the name of Federated Learning (FL) and spearheaded among others by Google. Even if FL claims to revolutionize machine learning and data processing in general, by extracting useful features from the edge-generated data while still providing strong privacy guarantees, its novel architecture exposes two important issues: scalability and robustness against attacks. The purpose of this postdoc is to investigate the potential robustness improvements of the Federated Leaning architecture using the attestation mechanisms of hardware TEEs.
* research activities towards the improvement of FL robustness
* the implementation of a proof of concept
* experience with mobile operating systems (e.g. Android) and mobile architectures (e.g. ARM)
* C/C++ programming skils
* the ability to work in an interactive team
