Role in the project

NEC Laboratories Europe brings TEE expertise to the consortium by leading the Trust and Security Enhancement Mechanisms task. We will develop processes to improve the security of commercial TEEs (e.g., Intel SGX) for securing the ACROSS platform and its functional elements and thus adapt them to the project requirements. We will also contribute to safer AI and more robust ML algorithms, and design functionalities for emerging TEE architectures (e.g., Keystone on Risc-V).
