Spoke 9:
Securing Digital Transformation

Associate Professor, UNIROMA1

TA 9 has the main objective of studying new approaches, methodologies, solutions, and tools that can provide adequate security guarantees for new application scenarios that are emerging today as a consequence of strong acceleration towards pervasive digital transformation. In particular, the researchers involved in the topics of TA 9 will work on four reference scenarios, considered to be of strategic interest for the near future: (i) development of decentralized finance solutions based on secure distributed technologies such as DLTs and smart contracts; (ii) strengthening of data security and privacy properties in services provided by the public administration within e-government programs; (iii) remote healthcare solutions based on personal devices, essential for more efficient management of chronically ill patients or those patients in need of continuous monitoring; (iv) quantum key distribution technologies for critical applications.
