Secure Web Operating System Application Delivery Environment

Research Area

Semantic Interoperability, Technical Interoperability

Short Description

The WEBINOS project aims to define and deliver an Open Source Platform and software components for the Future Internet in the form of web runtime extensions, as well as complementary infrastructure components, in order to enable web applications and services to be used and shared consistently and securely over a broad spectrum of converged and connected devices, including mobile, PC, home media (TV) and in-car units. Promoting a "single service for every device" vision, WEBINOS will advance the development of web applications to run consistently across a wide range of connected devices ensuring that the technologies for describing, negotiating, securing, utilizing device functionalities and adapting to context are fi t for purpose. Innovations in contextual description will be broad, including but not limited to, device capabilities, network access, user identity and preferences, location, behaviourally induced properties and finally the more complex issue of the users' social network context and social media engagement.

WEBINOS will boost the industry migration towards web-based services. webinos will support this by providing interoperable, standardised, open source technology utilizable across domains with direct commercially exploitable value. webinos will also act as an industry catalyst to encourage collaboration and discourage fragmentation in this space. Th ere are strong industry moves towards Internet friendly and Internet integrated off erings, and a window of opportunity exists to place the webinos technology on a robust open foundation that will remove economic barriers to engagement, embody policy on data privacy in concrete technology and create a centre of web centric expertise.
