Creating a future of secure and private computing.

Marno

My name is Marno van der Maas and I am a PhD candidate at the University of Cambridge in the area of Computer Science. This website is a collection of interesting things that I would like to archive and make accessible to the rest of the world.

My professional interests lie in making computing more secure and private. Namely, in my PhD I am looking at how to make it possible for applications to keep data private from the operating system they run on top of. This is important since modern operating systems have increasingly more features and larger code bases. Thus, they are more likely to be compromised. Creating a processor that enables private execution will allows applications to keep data private from the operating system in case the operating system is compromised.
