In both pilots ABC4Trust will allow each education facility to issue credentials to its users, including pupils, parents and students, enabling them to, prove that they have attended a certain class, are members of a specific group such as a sports team, or have a given sex or age. Stored on a smartcard or mobile phone, users may use these digital credentials to authenticate towards services. At the Patras pilot, the university will be able to run its own computerized feedback system and students can take comfort in knowing that ABC4Trust is protecting their identity.

The future of personalized identification

As electronic personal identification cards and electronic driving licenses are becoming more widespread for identification, authentication, and payment in a broad range of applications, the users’ privacy will become an even greater challenge. Privacy technologies, such as the ones piloted in ABC4Trust, will be necessary to build sustainable privacy solutions into these systems and realize their benefits for tomorrow’s information society.

Identity Management enables Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to improve the customers’ access to CSP and 3rd party services, providing Single Sign On (SSO) for end users and Anonymous Federated Services. CSPs can eliminate the plethora of passwords and security procedures to simplify the way that end users experience new services. Our solution also enables CSPs to provide more personalized services to end users and generate revenue from third parties who want to take part whilst ensuring privacy is maintained.

About the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme


The Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) bundles all research-related EU initiatives together under a common roof playing a crucial role in reaching the goals of growth, competitiveness and employment; along with a new Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP), Education and Training programmes, and Structural and Cohesion Funds for regional convergence and competitiveness. It is also a key pillar for the European Research Area (ERA).

The broad objectives of FP7 have been grouped into four categories: Cooperation, Ideas, People and Capacities. For each type of objective, there is a specific programme corresponding to the main areas of EU research policy. All specific programmes work together to promote and encourage the creation of European poles of (scientific) excellence.
