The objective of WP4 is to identify a set of decomposition, transformation and other methods for making concrete applications amenable to SMC techniques, in order for these techniques to bring added value for privacy protection and for secure collaboration, particularly in networked settings.
One of identified application domains of interest is collaborative network management. In this setting a number of network operators each operating its own collection of autonomous systems wish to collaborate to optimize various performance parameters such as through-put and load, and they wish to jointly monitor the state of the global network with regard to various healthiness criteria, such as security.
The objective of the work package is to identify a suitable set of application domains and scenarios, extend the SMC techniques developed in WP2 to make them suitable for the application domain, and to develop the application examples themselves.
