1st Workshop September 26, 2006

What ?

This Workshop is organized to introduce the adapID (Advanced Applications for e-ID Cards in Flanders) project to the public.

The goal of the adapID project is to develop a framework for secure and privacy-preserving applications based on the Belgian e-ID card, focussing mainly on e-government, e-health and trusted archiving applications, and taking into account both technical and legal aspects.

The research consortium consists of seven partners, each bringing their own expertise in this project:

  • Coordinator research group COSIC, ESAT, K.U.Leuven
  • Research group DistriNet, Department of Computer Science, K.U.Leuven
  • Research group ICRI, Faculty of Law, K.U.Leuven
  • Research group McGill, McGill University (Canada)
  • INTESI Group Belgium
  • EMC Belgian Development Group
  • L-SEC - Leuven Security Excellence Consortium (Belgium)

In this Workshop the results of the first year of the project will be presented. In particular, the requirement study for e-ID applications, the current framework for development of applications using the e-ID card, and some of the first basic research results of the project.

Finally, two invited speakers, Mr Caspar Bowden from Microsoft and Mr Frank Robben from Kruispuntbank will give presentations.
