11th IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management

ifip2The 11th International IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management took place at the Karlstad University in Sweden. The event took place under the umbrella of the International Federation for Information Processing, the leading multinational, apolitical organization in ICT and related sciences. The summer school was attended by scientists at different stages of their career and with different backgrounds, e.g., cryptography and security, social sciences, usability, or law, as well as non-scientists such as the former chairperson of the European Pirate Party.
CREDENTIAL supported the event through sponsoring, and in turn received the possibility to hold a 2-hour-session. The objective of this workshop was not only the dissemination of the technologies used in CREDENTIAL and the envisioned pilot scenarios, but also involving all participants in a critical discussion of technical and end user-related privacy and usability challenges for identifying of and creating awareness about obstacles, trade-offs, requirements, and possible solutions. The workshop consisted of two parts: In the first part of the workshop, we provided some introductory presentations on the cryptographic background and the project's eHealth use case. This was followed by an open discussion of the general concept of the CREDENTIAL wallet, the intended eHealth use case as well as technical, application- and end user-related challenges and requirements.
