Confidential Computing and Privacy-preserving Technologies for 6G
CONFIDENTIAL6G will develop cryptographic quantum-resistant protocols and security proofs tools, libraries, mechanism and architectural blueprints for confidentiality in 6G.
Cryptographic enablers for confidential computing (FHE, SMPC, TEE) and post-quantum networking. DLT privacy enablers (ZKP). Support for emdedded edge devices and HW.
Confidential Computing via FHE, SMPC and HW TEEs. Colaborative AI/ML. Confidential containers. Remote attestations. Secure enclave abstractions. Secure key distribution.
Post-quantum secure network protocols. Secure data sharing and access control. Private blockchain Smart Contracts, DIDs and VCs. Federated AI/ML orchestration.
CONFIDENTIAL6G will research post-quantum cryptography (PQC) in order to create tools, libraries, SDKs and other artifacts needed for future 6G technologies
Confidential Computing Enablers
Confidential Computing enablers: Lattice-based cryptography for Fully Homomorphic Encryption, Secure Multi-party Computation, TEE attestation handling, collaborative AI/ML
Secure Communication Enablers
Confidential Communication enablers: PQC TLS and other protocols10, Blockchain-based data exchange, Zero-knowledge Proofs (ZKPs), confidential Smart Contracts, Decentralised Identifiers (DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials (VCs), and a new concept of Anonymous Credentials (AC)
IoT Security Enablers
Confidential Edge and IoT enablers: embedded FHE, PQC for constrained devices, large-scale networks of connected devices involved in federated learning and cryptography necessary to support this.
IN A NUTSHELL
In CONFIDENTIAL6G, our goal is to ensure secure and private computation in the cloud-edge continuum of 6G by developing modern cryptographic techniques, tools, and libraries. We recognize the importance of implementing privacy preservation and security of data in heterogeneous environments and contexts, and thus, we prioritize researching security enablers. We aim to tackle the potential danger posed by near-future quantum computers, which can break contemporary encryptions, by exploring novel cryptographic operations
