In view of the seventh European research and technological development framework programme (FP7), BlueKrypt worked on a research project aiming at improving the security of the elements in a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment.

The main problems faced were:

  • Absence of precise guarantee as far as the liability and the security of the mobile tools and BYOD devices, accessing the cloud computing services, are concerned. This fact is a problem for the companies wishing to transfer their applications and their core business to the "mobile cloud".
  • An end-to-end lack of security that weakens the trust of the parties. It is necessary, for example, to ensure that the data on a client is not modified or that no unauthorized leakage occurs. Working policies need to be drawn up to allow different parties in miscellaneous fields to freely interact and cooperate using their own mobile devices.
  • Existing TEEs (trusted working environments) offer a limited set of security services.

Considering this situation, BlueKrypt and 8 other partners decided to work together in order to elaborate a complete solution to allow companies to contemplate with ease the use of the mobile technologies of the future.
