D3.9: Study on the Impact of Trusted Computing on Identity and Identity Management

Introduction  Title:
 Scope and Structure of the Document


Relevance of TC for Identity and Identity Management

The reason why TC is addressed in the context of FIDIS is mainly related to the fact that TC introduces new schemes and business cases based on trust establishment between computing platforms, which would definitely have considerable implications on identity based authentication and identity management schemes. On the other side, the specifications and protocols defined within the TCG seem to raise problems regarding privacy since they require the user to reveal some identification information about the platform he is using. TC seems ambiguous for many people when it comes to its capability for enhancing privacy or anonymity of identity and identification information. 

It is therefore important to shed the light on the relevance of TC infrastructures used in identification and identity management systems, and to assess their possible effects on crucial aspects of identity and identity management such as strong authentication, user privacy and anonymity.
