The HASLab master's student Ricardo Macedo has an article accepted at an international CORE A conference

The article entitled "A Practical Framework for Privacy-Preserving NoSQL Databases" was accepted at the 36th IEEE International Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems (SRDS 2017), an international conference classified with A by the well-know CORE ranking.

The accepted article addresses cloud infrastructures and, in order to solve the privacy challenges in the cloud and the limitation of current secure databases, it proposes SafeNoSQL, a generic framework for NoSQL databases. The framework provides a modular and extensible architecture that offers configurable security and performance for applications with different requirements.

This article was written by Ricardo Macedo, a HASLab master's student, in co-authorship with João Paulo, HASLab postdoc, Rogério Pontes, Bernardo Portela, Tiago Oliveira, HASLab doctoral students, Rui Oliveira, EEUM professor and Administrator of INESC TEC, and Miguel Matos, researcher at INESC-id.

In addition to this article, HASLab had another article accepted in this conference. The article "DottedDB: Anti-Entropy without Merkle Trees, Deletes without Tombstones", presents the Node-wide Dotted-based Clocks, a new distributed database framework with support for efficient detection and repair of obsolete data; support for deletes without permanent metadata, and support for scalable key causality. This framework was implemented in a new distributed DottedDB database and compared extensively with the state of the art. The authors of this article are Ricardo Gonçalves, doctoral student of HASLab, Paulo Sérgio Almeida, Carlos Baquero and Victor Fonte, professors of EEUM.

SRDS is a renowned international conference in the area of Reliable Distributed Systems whose next edition will occur in Hong Kong, China, September 26-29.
