Identity management throughout life – solutions, trends, side effects

T 013, 29/09/2010 (11:00-12:30)

This is an opportunity to learn about EU projects that support e-services through identity management (IDM) used for authorisation, identification of users and privacy management.

Electronic identities create risks such as undesired identification and identity theft. With current mobility patterns and information sharing, the life cycle of IDM throughout a person’s life is challenging. How can IDM technology strengthen the privacy and security properties of applications? This session presents IDM research from the EU projects PrimeLife, TURBINE, PICOS, Semiramis and Norway’s PETweb II. Aimed at users and specialists with an interest in privacy, biometric template protection, and IDM, it will be organised with short talks to foster collaboration. The aim is to create a cluster of projects and pilots to exchange results and reach out to IDM users to form a group interested in upcoming pilots and projects.

Privacy and data protection are central issues for our digital society, and identity management technologies are part of the solution. Bringing together the relevant projects in this area is an excellent idea. I am looking forward to this session.

I find it very good that the session presents results from various research projects. Especially for those that are not experts in the field but see the importance of it this overview is very valuable.
