Trustworthy Computing

Trustworthy Computing -> Ensure a safe and reliable computing experience

Trustworthy Computing Goals:

1. Security - The customer can expect that systems are resilient to attack, and that the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the system and its data are protected.

2. Privacy - The customer is able to control their information and feel confident it is not only safe and used appropriately, but in a way that provides value to them.

3. Reliability - The customer can depend on the product to fulfill its functions.
Business Integrity The vendor of a product behaves in a responsive and responsible manner.

Microsoft Trustworthy Computing Framework - SD3+C:

1. Secure by Design — Improving architecture and engineering.

2. Secure by Default— Reducing attack service by disabling unnecessary functions.

3. Secure in Deployment — Ongoing protection, detection, defense, recovery, and maintenance through good tools and guidance.

4. Communications — Listening to customers and communicating clearly, openly, respectfully, and honestly.
