On Making Emerging Trusted Execution Environments Accessible to Developers
Thomas Nyman,Brian McGillion,N. Asokan
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: New types of Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) architectures like TrustLite and Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) are emerging. They bring new features that can lead to innovative security and privacy solutions. But each new TEE environment comes with its own set of interfaces and programming paradigms, thus raising the barrier for entry for developers who want to make use of these TEEs. In this paper, we motivate the need for realizing standard TEE interfaces on such emerging TEE architectures and show that this exercise is not straightforward. We report on our on-going work in mapping GlobalPlatform standard interfaces to TrustLite and SGX.
The Study Protocol for the LINC (LUCAS in Cardiac Arrest) Study: a study comparing conventional adult out-of-hospital cardiopulmonary resuscitation with a concept with mechanical chest compressions and simultaneous defibrillation
Rubertsson Sten,Silfverstolpe Johan,Rehn Liselott,Nyman Thomas
Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine , 2013, DOI: 10.1186/1757-7241-21-5
Abstract: Background The LUCAS device delivers mechanical chest compressions that have been shown in experimental studies to improve perfusion pressures to the brain and heart as well as augmenting cerebral blood flow and end tidal CO2, compared with results from standard manual cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Two randomised pilot studies in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients have not shown improved outcome when compared with manual CPR. There remains evidence from small case series that the device can be potentially beneficial compared with manual chest compressions in specific situations. This multicentre study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of mechanical chest compressions with the LUCAS device whilst allowing defibrillation during on-going CPR, and comparing the results with those of conventional resuscitation. Methods/design This article describes the design and protocol of the LINC-study which is a randomised controlled multicentre study of 2500 out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients. The study has been registered at ClinicalTrials.gov (http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00609778?term=LINC&rank=1). Results Primary endpoint is four-hour survival after successful restoration of spontaneous circulation. The safety aspect is being evaluated by post mortem examinations in 300 patients that may reflect injuries from CPR. Conclusion This large multicentre study will contribute to the evaluation of mechanical chest compression in CPR and specifically to the efficacy and safety of the LUCAS device when used in association with defibrillation during on-going CPR.
Characterizing SEAndroid Policies in the Wild
Elena Reshetova,Filippo Bonazzi,Thomas Nyman,Ravishankar Borgaonkar,N. Asokan
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Starting from the 5.0 Lollipop release all Android processes must be run inside confined SEAndroid access control domains. As a result, Android device manufacturers were compelled to develop SEAndroid expertise in order to create policies for their device-specific components. In this paper we analyse SEAndroid policies from a number of 5.0 Lollipop devices on the market, and identify patterns of common problems we found. We also suggest some practical tools that can improve policy design and analysis. We implemented the first of such tools, SEAL.
Security of OS-level virtualization technologies: Technical report
Elena Reshetova,Janne Karhunen,Thomas Nyman,N. Asokan
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: The need for flexible, low-overhead virtualization is evident on many fronts ranging from high-density cloud servers to mobile devices. During the past decade OS-level virtualization has emerged as a new, efficient approach for virtualization, with implementations in multiple different Unix-based systems. Despite its popularity, there has been no systematic study of OS-level virtualization from the point of view of security. In this report, we conduct a comparative study of several OS-level virtualization systems, discuss their security and identify some gaps in current solutions.
Citizen Electronic Identities using TPM 2.0
Thomas Nyman,Jan-Erik Ekberg,N. Asokan
Computer Science , 2014,
Abstract: Electronic Identification (eID) is becoming commonplace in several European countries. eID is typically used to authenticate to government e-services, but is also used for other services, such as public transit, e-banking, and physical security access control. Typical eID tokens take the form of physical smart cards, but successes in merging eID into phone operator SIM cards show that eID tokens integrated into a personal device can offer better usability compared to standalone tokens. At the same time, trusted hardware that enables secure storage and isolated processing of sensitive data have become commonplace both on PC platforms as well as mobile devices. Some time ago, the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) released the version 2.0 of the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) specification. We propose an eID architecture based on the new, rich authorization model introduced in the TCGs TPM 2.0. The goal of the design is to improve the overall security and usability compared to traditional smart card-based solutions. We also provide, to the best our knowledge, the first accessible description of the TPM 2.0 authorization model.
Open-TEE - An Open Virtual Trusted Execution Environment
Brian McGillion,Tanel Dettenborn,Thomas Nyman,N. Asokan
Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: Hardware-based Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) are widely deployed in mobile devices. Yet their use has been limited primarily to applications developed by the device vendors. Recent standardization of TEE interfaces by GlobalPlatform (GP) promises to partially address this problem by enabling GP-compliant trusted applications to run on TEEs from different vendors. Nevertheless ordinary developers wishing to develop trusted applications face significant challenges. Access to hardware TEE interfaces are difficult to obtain without support from vendors. Tools and software needed to develop and debug trusted applications may be expensive or non-existent. In this paper, we describe Open-TEE, a virtual, hardware-independent TEE implemented in software. Open-TEE conforms to GP specifications. It allows developers to develop and debug trusted applications with the same tools they use for developing software in general. Once a trusted application is fully debugged, it can be compiled for any actual hardware TEE. Through performance measurements and a user study we demonstrate that Open-TEE is efficient and easy to use. We have made Open- TEE freely available as open source.

Simulation of Quantum Algorithms with a Symbolic Programming Language
Peter Nyman
Physics , 2007,
Abstract: This study examines the simulation of quantum algorithms on a classical computer. The program code implemented on a classical computer will be a straight connection between the mathematical formulation of quantum mechanics and computational methods. The computational language will include formulations such as quantum state, superposition and quantum operator.
Simulation of Quantum Error Correcting Code
Peter Nyman
Physics , 2008,
Abstract: This study considers implementations of error correction in a simulation language on a classical computer. Error correction will be necessarily in quantum computing and quantum information. We will give some examples of the implementations of some error correction codes. These implementations will be made in a more general quantum simulation language on a classical computer in the language Mathematica. The intention of this research is to develop a programming language that is able to make simulations of all quantum algorithms and error corrections in the same framework. The program code implemented on a classical computer will provide a connection between the mathematical formulation of quantum mechanics and computational methods. This gives us a clear uncomplicated language for the implementations of algorithms.
On consistency of the quantum-like representation algorithm
Peter Nyman
Physics , 2009, DOI: 10.1007/s10773-009-0171-2
Abstract: In this paper we continue to study so called ``inverse Born's rule problem'': to construct representation of probabilistic data of any origin by a complex probability amplitude which matches Born's rule. The corresponding algorithm -- quantum-like representation algorithm (QLRA) was recently proposed by A. Khrennikov [1]--[5]. Formally QLRA depends on the order of conditioning. For two observables $a$ and $b,$ $b| a$- and $a | b$ conditional probabilities produce two representations, say in Hilbert spaces $H^{b| a}$ and $H^{a| b}.$ In this paper we prove that under natural assumptions these two representations are unitary equivalent. This result proves consistency QLRA.
