Conference Agenda

The many credentials needed on the Internet pose the question where to store and how to use them in a secure fashion. Smart Cards are the classic device, however they usually lack the user interface needed for secure interactions, e.g. choosing or customizing the right attribute-based credential for a given situation and relying party.

Mobile (smart) phones could be the platform of choice given their now very rich user interfaces. However their downside is their insecurity caused by e.g. the complexity of their operating systems, the difficulty for users to control the data flows on the systems and the risks posed by flood of applications (“Apps”) that can be installed quickly and easily

This presentation will discuss opportunities and risks of storing sensitive information on a smart phone and also approaches to help users to judge Apps based on their privacy properties.
