Internet and telecommunication applications become more and more personal, which raises major privacy problems. One example is the trend towards more and more identification of Internet users (such as social network participants) leading to federated identity management systems based on credentials that a relying party needs to check to get assurance on requesting users.
This presentation first introduces ABC4Trust, a European Union funded project to achieve the federation and interchangeability of P-ABC technologies including an integrating architecture and two pilot applications for a school’s communication system and a university’s course evaluation facility.
