Trustworthy Infrastructure for Personal Data Management

  1. 1. Trustworthy Infrastructure for PDM Digital Enlightenment Forum 2013 Brussels, 18-20 Sept. 2013 Ioannis Krontiris Goethe University Frankfurt
  2. 2. Privacy-ABCs • Benefits of Privacy-ABCs – Privacy-ABCs are by default untraceable (no user-tracking) – Enable minimal disclosure (user reveals only the necessary information) – User can chose to stay anonymous or generate (unlimited number of) pseudonyms – Advanced security (no sharing of credentials, device-binding for extra protection) • ABC4Trust objectives: A common, unified architecture for ABC systems to enable – Comparing their respective features – Combining them on common platforms – reference implementation – 2 pilots – “Lock-In” free usage of ABC systems • Raise trust in privacy-ABC technologies
  3. 3. ABC4Trust - About • Scheduled duration: November 2010 – February2015 • Funding: The ABC4Trust project receives research funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme under grant agreement n° 257782 as part of the “ICT Trust and Security Research” theme. • Web Page:
  4. 4. ABC4Trust @GitHub • gine/ • Source codes available under Apache license • Documentation, installation guide and wiki pages
  5. 5. Pilot Applications • Norrtullskolan School, Söderhamn, Sweden • School internal social network for communication among pupils, teachers, and personnel • Sept 2013 – Dec 2013 • University of Patras, Greece • Course ratings conducted anonymously without lecturers knowing participants’ identities • Conduct polls based on attendance • Oct 2013 – Jan 2014
  6. 6. Privacy-ABCs and eIDs • eID cards a gateway to personal information with risks to the privacy of citizens – Build privacy-respecting architectures that prevent tracking of the citizen • Achieving international interoperability is an important goal – Build privacy preserving solutions that can be deployed for trans-border uses within the EU
  7. 7. Challenges ahead • Address usability issues – innovative tools, such as “virtual care-takers,” to empower users make decisions that they cannot understand or evaluate properly • Address engineering problems – integrating privacy technologies on large scale deployments is still ill understood – examine methods of evaluation, criteria and metrics • Address continuously new data collection practices and data flows – Data treated by cloud-based applications – Sensors that collect personal information
