'''ABSTRACT : '''Providing services through the Internet automatically creates a huge exposure surface to online threats, which calls for appropriate security measures. Maintaining the balance between the risks of cyberattacks and the controls to prevent and defend against attacks is a constant race. In recent years it seems that the balance has shifted significantly in favour of the attackers, which means that security efforts must be strengthened. This talk discusses security strategies for countering current and future threats, and tries to predict how the balance between security risks and controls will evolve towards 2020.

TITLE: The FutureID approach to interoperable, cross-border digital identity

ABSTRACT: The FutureID project builds a comprehensive, flexible, privacy-aware and ubiquitously usable identity management infrastructure for Europe, which integrates existing eID technology and trust infrastructures, emerging federated identity management services and modern credential technologies to provide a user-centric system for the trustworthy and accountable management of identity claims.

The FutureID infrastructure will provide great benefits to all stakeholders involved in the eID value chain. Users will benefit from the availability of a ubiquitously usable open source eID client that is capable of running on arbitrary desktop PCs, tablets and modern smart phones. FutureID will allow application and service providers to easily integrate their existing services with the FutureID infrastructure, providing them with the benefits from the strong security offered by eIDs without requiring them to make substantial investments. This will enable service providers to offer this technology to users as an alternative to username/password based systems, providing them with a choice for a more trustworthy, usable and innovative technology.

The benefits of the FutureID platform for both users and service providers are substantial. By implementing an intermediary for trusted e-ID services, cross-border e-ID applications become both economic and efficient by providing simple processes and a critical mass of reachable users.

For existing and emerging trust service providers and card issuers FutureID will provide an integrative framework, which eases using their authentication and signature related products across Europe and beyond. To demonstrate the applicability of the developed technologies and the feasibility of the overall approach FutureID will develop two pilot applications and is open for additional application services who want to use the innovative FutureID technology.
