Cloud industry is moving fast to address challenges of cloud security standardization and certification. In a matter of fact, several certification schemes already exist in Europe, but the challenges of achieving global, trusted and widely accepted scheme, still remain. Read more ›


The EC-funded ABC4Trust project works on the federation and interchangeability of technologies that support trustworthy yet privacy-preserving Attribute-based Credentials (Privacy-ABCs). Privacy-ABCs allow a holder to reveal and prove just the minimal information required by an application, without giving away the full set of the attributes certified in the credential.

AU2EU is an EU-funded collaborative research and development project (in the FP7-ICT-2013-10 call). The project brings together a strong collaboration of leading industry and research organisations from Europe and Australia, determined to increase trust, security and privacy. The project started in December 2013 (with the kick-off in Sydney, Australia) and has a duration of 24 months.

Integrated eAuthentication and eAuthorisation framework

Central to the AU2EU project is the implementation and demonstration, in a real-life environment an integrated eAuthentication and eAuthorisation framework. Two pilots are executed to demonstrate feasibility of our approach for two of the use cases, i.e. for the bio-security incident response use case in Australia and the collaborative services for eHealth and Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) use case in Europe.


The goal of the SECFUNET project is to design and develop a coherent security architecture for virtual networks and cloud accesses. The proposed architecture will provide solutions allowing the management of the security of communications for all machines connected to a public cloud using virtual networks. Read more >

Achieving the Trust Paradigm Shift (ATTPS)

Trust is an essential prerequisite for connecting people in effective transactions. It builds into the society on elements like security, privacy, transparency, accountability and reputation. European strategy must aim at a strong competitive position in producing trustworthy ICT that bring new attractive ways of living and working that are perceived as trustworthy.

ATTPS addresses four pillars, which include business, legal, social and technical challenges. The objectives of ATTPS are: 1.Enforcement of the trust paradigm shift 2.Create awareness at industry, institutes, and governments across member states 3.Contribute to interoperability and standardisation at European level on trustworthy ICT.

TDL sprints – TDL completes successful sprint cycle

Trustseed sas won the TDL sprint prize of €25000 to execute their proposal on “legal online signatures”. They collected their prize on Monday (07-04) at Trust In The Digital World.

Sprints are short projects to validate proof of concepts of technology, interoperability and trustworthiness. More information about the TDL sprints can be found on the TDL website: TDL sprints.


OPTET: First achievements and tools

The OPTET project is hosting a workshop in the Leibnitz centre in Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany, to show the first deliverables of the project to an external audience from June, 22nd to June 25th. Besides members of the advisory board and interested stakeholder representatives, experts from different, interdisciplinary research areas have been invited to present their view on the challenges in the area of trustworthy software development, and to give early feedback on the methodologies and tools that the OPTET project consortium is working on.
