Privacy, Data Protection, Digital Identities
Description of call
"Privacy, Data Protection, Digital Identities"

Many services on the Internet depend on the availability of secure digital identities which play a crucial role in safeguarding the data and privacy of citizens as well as protecting them and other actors such as private companies or public services form various online threats. At the same time, many European countries already have or are in the process of developing an electronic identity (eID) scheme. Most of these projects are built to be at a very high security level, which makes them very suitable for diverse eGovernment processes. But in turn they may lack usability for commercial applications.

Proposals may cover one of the strands identified:

  • Privacy-enhancing Technologies (PET)
  • General Data Protection Regulation in practice
  • Secure digital identities
