Secure & Privacy-Aware eGovernment Services (SPAGOS)

Secure & Privacy-Aware eGovernment Services (SPAGOS)
Status: In progress  
Start date: 2013-09-16  
Description:

eGovernment raises serious concerns with respect to information security and privacy. In this context, the goal of the SPAGOS project is to bring about a framework that, unlike current approaches, will foster a holistic solution for security and privacy-awareness in the provision of eGovernment services. In that respect, it will develop a distributed platform spanning across all the entities participating at the eGovernment service provision chain and managing the communication, storage and processing of information in a secure and privacy-aware manner. The core principles to be leveraged towards the creation of secure transactions are the use of advanced cryptographic patterns that have never been used within eGovernment and an advanced role of electronic IDs, notably not only as passive identification tokens, but as essential functional components undertaking critical processing tasks.
