Sobre

Victor Francisco Fonte é licenciado em Engenharia de Sistemas e Informática, mestre em Sistemas Distribuídos e doutorado em Tecnologias da Programação pela Universidade do Minho.

Os seus actuais interesses de investigação estão focados em operação autónoma em sistemas distribuídos com aplicação a sistemas de grande-escala, fracamente ligados e ambientes de operação autónoma. Os seus interesses abarcam também os modelos de coerência inevitavel e técnicas para bases de dados chave-valor multi-centro de daods, e plataformas transacionais multi-camada altamente escaláveis.  A sua investigação tem também estado focada em replicação, gestão autónoma de identidade e registo de causalidade. Supervisiona várias dissertações de mestrado, projectos de doutoramento e pós-doutoramento, e lecciona unidades curriculares de 2º ciclo no domínio de Sistemas Dsitribuídos e Segurança de Sistemas de Informação.

Colabora em vários projectos de investigação com financiamento FCT e de fundos da União Europeia, e tem servido como coordenador e consultor em vários projectos financiados pelo QREN e actualmente pelos programas 2020.

Foi co-fundador e supervisionou o Grupo de Investigação Linux (GIL, 1995-2008), e o Grupo de Interesse em Computação Móvel ( 2010-12) na Universidade do Minho, e tem estado activamente envolvido em vários projectos de software e de investigação no âmbito do código-fonte e formatos abertos.

Data security and trustworthiness in online public services: An assessment of Portuguese institutions

Abstract
Providing public services through the internet is an effective approach towards an encompassing number of citizens being covered by them and for cost reduction. However, the fast development of this area has fostered discussion and legislation regarding information security and trustworthiness. In addition to security mechanisms for data processed and stored internally, service providers must ensure that data exchanged between their servers and citizens are not intercepted or modified when traversing heterogeneous and uncontrolled networks. Moreover, such institutions should provide means enabling the citizen to verify the authenticity of the services offered. In this way, the present work provides a comprehensive overview regarding the security posture of Portuguese public institutions in their online services. It consists of non-invasive robustness evaluation of the deployed solutions for end-to-end data encryption and the correct use of digital certificates. As a result, we provide some recommendations aiming to enhance the current panorama in the majority of the 111 online services considered in this study. © 2019 Association for Computing Machinery.

Qualification offer in EGOV competencies in PALOP-TL

Abstract
Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) have been successfully used in order to promote and pursue the goals of UN's 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Meeting these goals, however, require significant efforts on public policy development, adequate planning and implementation, as well as qualified human resources working at every level of government, public administration and institutions. This paper presents a first quantitative analysis originated from Electronic Government-related training sessions that took place on all five Portuguese Speaking African Countries, and in Timor-Leste along 2017. The results focus on (i) the availability of higher education institutions offering courses related to EGOV on each of those countries; (ii) the qualification of the professionals attending those sessions; and (iii) how availability of local higher education courses translates into qualifications of local professionals serving at public administration level. This paper also discusses some perceptions gathered from the field, both from participants and lecturer teams, framing additional challenges that EGOV-related courses must take into account in those particular settings. It concludes by pointing out some of the works already taking place, which provides a deeper understanding of the workforce competencies in EGOV for each of those countries. © 2018 Copyright is held by the owner/author(s).

SUSTAINABILITY

Abstract
Climate change is a proven fact. In the report of 2007 from IPCC, one can read that global warming is an issue to be dealt with urgently. In many parts of the world, the estimated rise of temperature (in a very near future) is significant. One of the most affected regions is the Iberian Peninsula, where the increasing need for water will very soon be a problem. Therefore, it is necessary that decision makers are able to decide on all issues related to water management. In this paper, we show a couple of mathematical models that can aid the decision making in the management of an agricultural field at a given location. Having a field, in which different crops can be produced, the solution of the first model indicates the area that should be used for each crop so that the profit is as large as possible, while the water spent is the smallest possible guaranteeing the water requirements of each crop. Using known data for these crops in Portugal, including costs of labour, machines, energy and water, as well as the estimated value of the products obtained, the first mathematical model developed, via optimal control theory, obtains the best management solution. It allows creating different scenarios, thus it can be a valuable tool to help the farmer/decision maker decide the crop and its area to be cultivated. A second mathematical model was developed. It improves the first one, in the sense that it allows considering that water from the rainfall can be collected in a reservoir with a given capacity. The contribution of the collected water from the rainfall in the profit obtained for some different scenarios is also shown.
