Established in 2011, the Trustless Computing Association (previously called Open Media Cluster) is a non-profit research association, based in Rome and Luxembourg, pursuing the creation of bleeding-edge IT security standards and technologies for the public good.
Since 2014, its sole aim has been to aggregate world-class partners and scientific advisors to promote establishment of a new uniquely comprehensive standard setting and certification body for IT security, through a wide multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder consensus, the Trustless Computing Certification Body, as well as an initial compliant IT service and open computing base through the spin-off startup TRUSTLESS.AI and various R&D funding proposals.
Such new standards and certifications are conceived to be suitable to reliably certify end-2-end IT services that sustainably provide radically-unprecedented levels of IT and AI trustworthiness, and trustworthiness measurability - for the most critical societal IT, AI and cyber-physical systems - while preserving or increasing targeted cyber-investigation capabilities, preventing malevolent use, and overall increasing public safety.
Main objectives are to jump start: (1) a highly citizen-accountable and technically-proficient standard setting and certification body; (2) a low-level general-purpose HW&SW open computing base, platform and target architecture; (3) an expanding community of user and independent profitable certified providers.
