CREDENTIAL - Secure Cloud Identity Wallet

Project: Research project

Project Details


goal of CREDENTIAL is to develop, test and showcase innovative cloud based services for storing, managing, and
sharing digital identity information and other critical personal data. The security of these services relies on the combination of
strong hardware-based multi-factor authentication with end-to-end encryption representing a significant advantage over
current password-based authentication schemes. The use of sophisticated proxy cryptography schemes will enable a secure
and privacy preserving information sharing network for cloud-based identity information in which even the identity provider
cannot access the data in plain-text and hence protect access to identity data. We focus not only on evaluating and applying
novel crypto-approaches for IAMs but also on implementing them in an easy-to-use way to motivate secure handling of
identity data.
