Smart City Data: APIs – Open Source

Streaming data presents a different problem from query/response.

streaming-api-projects/smart-city-data

These are streaming projects for city data, showing what is possible when you make valuable city data available in real time. The current projects in this repository are: All projects proxy city data using Streamdata.io, and uses Server-Sent Events (SSE) to push updates to each existing city data JSON API, only sending what changes using JSON Patch.

Parking Policy is Hot

Suddenly, Everyone Wants to Talk About Parking

What’s the most emotional topic in transportation?

SGX Secure Enclaves in Practice: Security and Crypto Review

by Jean-Philippe Aumasson & Luis Merino Software Guard Extensions (SGX) is a technology available in Intel(R) CPUs released in autumn 2015. SGX allows a remote server to process a client’s secret data within a software enclave that hides the secrets from the operating system, hypervisor, and even BIOS or chipset manager, while giving cryptographic evidence to the client that the code has been executed correctly the very definition of secure remote computation.

Introduction to the Enclave Definition Language Intel® SGX | Intel Software

In this video we are going to discuss the Enclave Definition Language used by Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX). The fundamental protection provided by Intel® SGX is that an enclave’s secrets can only be accessed by the code that is inside the enclave.
