Digital.me EU Projekt

Project Abstract/Summary

The EU FP7 funded project Digital.Me aims at integrating all personal data in a personal sphere by a single, user-controlled point of access: the Di.Me userware. This tool will run on the user’s devices, and rely on scaleable peer-to-peer communication in order to avoid external storage of personal data as far as possible and to enhance data portability. External services (e.g. web-communities, enterprise systems) will be integrated via gateways. Communication to individuals and services will make use of digital faces, i.e. user data selected for a particular purpose and context. An open trust, privacy, and security infrastructure will enable the user to securely use personal data. Trust metrics will guide the user to avoid risky behaviour. Anonymous data disclosure, data withdrawal and policies will foster privacy and trust. A semantic core with data mining, semantic mapping and reasoning, will support an intelligent management of personal data and communication history including recommendations how to take advantage of the personal sphere. Intelligent user interfaces on desktop and mobile devices will promote the intuitive usage of powerful semantic and privacy-technologies and will enable the user to monitor, control, and interpret personal data.

Contribution of the IT Security and Privacy Group

The IT Security and Privacy Group (University of Siegen) is leading the WP4 concerned with delivering an Infrastructure for Trust, Privacy, and Security. The most important tasks are: 

·       Task 4.1     Concepts for Multidimensional Trust Metrics

·       Task 4.2     Anonymity and Security on the Network Level

·       Task 4.3     Security at Application Level for Di.Me Userware

·       Task 4.4     Identity Management System Prototype for Dynamic and Semi-automatic Trust Evaluation

Other contributions are related to the following tasks:

·       Task 3.1     Ontology Framework

·       Task 3.2     Data Mining Engine & Semantic Mapping Engine

·       Task 3.4     Ontology-based Trust, Privacy, and Security Modeling

·       Task 5.2     Development Desktop-based Intelligent User Interface Layer

·       Task 6.1     Di.Me System Architecture

·       Task 6.6     System Prototype Integration and Delivery I-IV

·       Task 7.1     Dissemination
