CROSSING Research Seminar: Towards language-level integration of Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs)

16.09.2021 13:00-14:00

Speaker: Aditya Oak, TU Darmstadt | Location: Online (Networking afterwards)

Organizer: Patrick Struck, CROSSING


With the advent of highly distributed computing models like cloud computing and edge computing, privacy-preservation has become a critical aspect of system design. Various Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs) are being used to enforce privacy, e.g., information flow control, symmetric/asymmetric cryptography, trusted execution environments, homomorphic encryption and differential privacy. These PETs offer different privacy-performance trade-offs and should ideally be combined in a common programming model.

In this talk, we present two languages that provide language-level integration of PETs, allowing programmable and granular privacy control.
