D8.3: Database on Identity Management Systems and ID Law in the EU

This document consists of two parts. Part A puts forward a structure for a database of Identity Management Systems (IMS). Two designs for a database are laid out: a prototype with 29 fields (section 3) and an extended version with a total of 138 fields (section 4). The prototype has been implemented and is accessible online at www.jrc.es/projects/ims/imsintrodb.cfm. This document also includes a user manual (section 5) and the technical specifications for the database (section 6). Records will continue to be added to the database of IMS over the coming months and the document describes the next steps in the development process.

Part B introduces a database of ID laws, the Identity Law Survey (IDLS). Section 8 provides the context, and section 9 presents the initial structure of the law survey used to build a prototype, available at rechten.uvt.nl/idls/. Sections 10-11 outline a revised database structure, and sections 12-14 provide the interface requirements, user manual, and maintenance plan. The aim is to develop a simple and user-friendly database, providing the public with basic information and knowledge on ID-related laws in the EU and North America.

D9.5: 1st FIDIS in-house Journal Issue (1/2007)

This edition of the  FIDIS Journal follows on from the DuD 9/2006 special issue on Identity, which comprised a set of articles based on research undertaken by the FIDIS Network of Excellence.

This present issue further demonstrates the multidisciplinary approach to the study of identity in the Information Society developed by the FIDIS Consortium. Four papers are included in this journal edition presenting recent research findings emerging from the latest work within the FIDIS project.

  • In Privacy Preserving Data Mining - a Process Centric View from a European Perspective Martin Meints and Jan Möller provide a brief overview of the state-of-the-art in Privacy Preserving Data Mining (PPDM) and summarise current suggestions for proceedings towards standardisation in PPDM. This is followed by considerations of how PPDM could be improved based on the European Directive 95/46/EC, taking procedural and process-related considerations into account.[Download Paper]
  • Mireille Hildebrandt’s paper, Profiling into the future: an assessment of profiling technologies in the context of Ambient Intelligence, evaluates the threats and opportunities of autonomic profiling in terms of its impact on citizens’ autonomy and refined discrimination and indicates the extent to which traditional data protection is ineffective as regards profiling. [Download Paper]
  • A Survey on EU Citizen’s Trust in ID Systems and Authorities by James Backhouse and Ruth Halperin addresses the social aspects associated with sharing data, especially personal information, in respect of plans for interoperable European electronic ID systems. The paper reports on a survey designed to investigate EU citizens’ perceptions and attitudes towards issues involved in making eIDs interoperable. Quantitative analysis of the survey’s results points to the lack of institutional trust and to an overall negative perception of the ID authorities by EU citizens. These negative attitudes of citizens hold important implications for any future attempts at implementing eID cards, as these perceptions may well be translated into subsequent behaviours, namely, resistance to use or, indeed, non-use.  [Download Paper]
  • In Biometric Implementations and the Implications for Security and Privacy, Vassiliki Andronikou, Dionysios S. Demetis and Theodora Varvarigou review the crucial security and privacy issues that affect current and future biometric implementations and point towards aspects which should be considered for the prudent management of Information Systems that utilise biometric technological components.

D15.2: FIDIS International Summer School

Training for PhD students within FIDIS is conducted through structured and
timely events held at or in association with an academic institution from within
the FIDIS network. The specific target of the FIDIS Doctoral Consortium is to
establish an interdisciplinary network of PhD-students through such structured
and timely meetings. To this end, the aim of this deliverable was to organise
and execute the first annual FIDIS Summer School. These are designed to tie-in
with other closely related events to expand the knowledge base and as a byproduct
to further publicise the work of FIDIS. This means that, whilst assuring
the interests of FIDIS, the event also targeted participants outside the FIDIS
network.
The 2007 event was successfully held on the 6th – 10th August in Karlstad,
Sweden, jointly with IFIP (International Federation of Information Processing)
Working Groups 9.2 (Computers and Social Accountability), 9.6/11.7 (IT
Misuse and the Law) and 11.6 (Identity Management). The proceedings of the
event have subsequently been published by the official IFIP publisher Springer
Science and Business Media.

D15.4: Interdisciplinary FIDIS Doctorial Consortium

Training for PhD students within FIDIS is conducted through structured and
timely events held at or in association with an academic institution from within
the FIDIS network. The specific aim of the FIDIS Doctoral Consortium is to
establish an interdisciplinary network of PhD-students.
Within this Workplan period, WP15 has held a successful Doctorial
Consortium event on the topic of e-Government and e-Business. The aim of this
event was to stimulate discussion and debate around the core themes.
Additionally, it has been acknowledged that, as the FIDIS network matures, a
shift in thinking is needed with regard to the DC events. As such, in addition to
the DC event held, within this Workplan we have diversified in order to
encourage students to attend other more established events, while actively
enhancing these events through additional activities where possible.

D15.5: Identity of the mind, body and spirit

Training for PhD students within FIDIS is conducted through structured and
timely events held at or in association with an academic institution from within
the FIDIS network. The target of the FIDIS Doctoral Consortium is to establish
an interdisciplinary network of PhD-students through such structured and
timely meetings. To this end, the objective of this deliverable was to hold a
larger DC event jointly with the FP6 funded ACGT project (Advancing
Clinico-Genomic Trials on Cancer). The event was successfully held on the 17th
– 20th June in Fodele, Crete, with the specific aim of introducing participants to
some of the varied aspects and issues of body-centric identity and as a byproduct
to further publicise the work of FIDIS. Indeed, whilst assuring the
interests of FIDIS, the event added value by specifically targeting participants
from outside of the FIDIS network.

D16.1: Conceptual Framework for Identity Management in eGovernment

The main goal of deliverable D16.1 is to find an agreement within the different
disciplines represented in the FIDIS NoE on the basic building blocks needed to
allow dialoguing on the very specific research field of privacy-friendly identity
management in eGovernment.
Concretely, this means that the conceptual framework explores the basic
concepts of (1) privacy and data protection, (2) identity management and (2)
eGovernment, and brings them together in a conceptual framework.
This framework will, in the next phase, be used to define the requirements for
privacy friendly IDM in a multi-level eGovernment context.
