Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR PROVIDING SECURE MOBILE EDGE COMPUTING ECOSYSTEMS
Abstract:
The disclosed technology may include systems and methods that provide a secure mobile edge computing eco-system employing end-to-end encrypted communication and edge functions capable of withstanding compromised operating systems. A secure mobile edge computing eco-system may include a use, an edge, and a backend. The backend may upload functionality to the backend onto secure edge functions (EFs). The functionality may be used to respond to user request at the edge in order to reduce bandwidth requirements and latency effects on a system. The secure edge functions (EFs) employing trusted execution environments (TEEs) to provide for secure execution and storage of functionality uploaded by the backend. The secure mobile edge computing eco-system may also include secure protocol extensions (SPX) for ensuring end-to-end encryption of user requests from the user to the backend and through the edge.
