Name Trusted Object Storage Chapter Cloud Hosting
Goal As a user I want to precisely know where my data is stored within the cloud. I have to reveal confidential information to certain business part-ners through the cloud. Due to this fact, I do not want to use a cloud-based black box, where I do not know who manages my data and en-sures their non-disclosure. Before I save data, I want to be informed about the underlying storage infrastructure and know that I can trust it.
Description The TClouds project aims at the introduction of a cloud-based infrastructure that ensures privacy in cross-border environments. A similar approach is highly desirable for the FI-WARE cloud hosting platform, so that FIWARE instance provider can be checked against their trustworthiness or infrastructure transparency. Transparency in this regards means that a user is able to determine where (e.g. physical location) his or her information will be stored and what type of infrastructure will be used.

Rationale It is vital that users can determine how their data will be handled if they would use a cloud based storage solution and whether they can trust the provided infrastructure. For instance, a certain user does not want to store her data on servers in a certain country due to a enforced disclosure of data to federal organizations. Thus, the user should be able to determine that a certain FIWARE instance provider uses servers located in this country in prior (transparency). Additionally, it is necessary users can be sure if a cloud provide says that they are not using servers in the certain country (trustworthiness)
