Network user security and privacy solutions in the era of artificial intelligence and GDPR

September 3, 2020 6:00 - 7:30

Location: Virtual Room 2


In the new era of the artificial intelligence, society faces emerging challenges to security and privacy systems.
This session showcases cutting-edge research by EU-funded projects on four important issues that the new emerging
digital technology and society will face.
1. Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI)
CTI is based on the collection of intelligence using open source, social media, human and technical intelligence,
as well as intelligence from the deep and dark web. CTI's key mission is to research and analyse trends and technical
developments in three areas: cybercrime, hacktivism and cyberespionage (advanced persistent threat, APT or Cyber spying).
2. Qualified Anonymity using Anonymous Credentials
To counter the increasing threat of identity fraud, commercial online services ask users to prove their full identity.
At the same time, commercial online services have to be GDPR compliant, which means not sacrificing privacy in the process.
We will address online identification schemes that do not allow for a fine-grained treatment of identity attributes, even
if an online service requires only certain attributes, e.g., their age or nationality.
3. User Privacy in Mobility Data
The talk will be about the privacy issues related to collecting human mobility data and using them as proxies to understand
human mobility dynamics and develop analytical services by using data mining and machine learning methods. The key objective
is to highlight the ubiquity of this data, their utility but also their sensitivity from the privacy point of view.
4. Security and Privacy Aspects for an API Economy
In order to ensure a vibrant European digital market, the European Commission setup the Digital Single Market Strategy to
eliminate obstacles to a European Data Economy. In this talk we will focus on the importance of security and privacy aspects
within the application programmable interface (API) economy, and outline how new technologies can lead towards a security-by-design approach.
