Trustworthy Platforms: Problems, Promises, Concepts, Practical Realities, and Research Opportunities

September 8, 2005 - 3:30 p.m. - STEW 206 - Dr. George Cox


Our computing platforms, from cell phones to servers, find themselves under ever more aggressive and tenacious attack. As we continue to become more dependent on these platforms in our daily lives, we naturally want to be able to trust that they will not fail under these attacks. Building a basis for being able to trust the robustness of our computing platforms is the subject of this talk. Topics covered will include the problems, promises, concepts, practical realities, and research opportunities in the Trustworthy Platform arena. Of particular interest are methods for dealing with legacy, system integration, and manageability issues.


Dr. George Cox is strategist/architect with multiyear focus on use of security technologies to solve trustworthy platform and distributed system problems. George's current responsibilities center on defining and driving Intel Communication Group's security and manageability initiatives. During his 29-year career at Intel, George has played a variety of leadership and management roles across a range of technology, product, academic, and business development programs aimed at creating innovative solutions to system level problems.
