jTSS (Trusted Computing for the Java Platform) refers to all efforts to make Trusted Computing services available for Java developers. Packages in Trusted Computing for the Java Platform are developed by the Institute for Applied Information Processing and Communications (IAIK) as part of the OpenTC project funded by the EU (Ref. Nr. 027635).
The Open Trusted Computing (OpenTC) consortium is an R&D project focusing on the development of trusted and secure computing systems based on open source software. The project targets traditional computer platforms as well as embedded systems such as mobile phones.
The goal of OpenTC is to reduce system-related threats, errors and malfunctions. The lack of platform security in today's computers has given rise to waves of successful attacks, resulting in severe damages to enterprises and potential failure of critical infrastructures.
The OpenTC consortium will define and implement an open Trusted Computing framework. The architecture is based on security mechanisms provided by low level operating system layers with isolation properties and interfaces to Trusted Computing hardware. These layers make it possible to leverage enhanced trust and security properties of the platform for standard operating systems, middleware, and applications.
