Verifi-eID - Solutions for legally secure verification of identities in server-safe clouds

01/01/2015 to 31/12/2017

Project Description:

The project partners are developing a solution that will allow users of secure cloud services to rely on the electronic identities of the partners involved.

They are exploring a method that uses identity cards to allow people to identify each other securely without the cloud provider knowing their identities. Instead of the cloud provider, a trusted third party takes over the verification of the identities. In addition, the verifi-eID system should also be able to verify the electronic identities of legal entities and digital objects such as documents or images.

The aim of the intended method is also to obtain legal certainty when verifying the identities.

The methods to be developed will be integrated in a demonstrator to test the applicability of the technically and legally safe procedures in different application scenarios.

Cyber Insurance and its Contribution to Cyber Risk Mitigation - Leiden March 25-29

The rise in both the scale and severity of recent cyberattacks demands new thinking about cybersecurity risk and the mitigation and transfer of that risk. Cyber insurance is one potential way to manage risk by transferring damage liability, but the cyber insurance market is immature and the understanding and actuarial knowledge of cyber-risk is currently underdeveloped.
