Empowering privacy and security in non-trusted environments
Short Description: 

Automatic and efficient privacy provisioning solutions, keeping data confidential in the un-trusted environment, while the data owner can operate with and make use of the data in the encrypted domain.

Full Description: 

WITDOM aims at producing a framework for end-to-end protection of data in untrusted and fast-evolving ICT-based environments. WITDOM puts particular focus in scenarios requiring data outsourcing, where new threats, vulnerabilities and risks require end-to-end security solutions that will withstand progress for the lifetime of applications they support. The WITDOM framework shall use security-and-privacy-by-design methodologies, and advance the state of the art in effective protection of personal and sensitive data in the following areas: • Privacy enhancing techniques, perturbation mechanisms and privacy metrics • Privacy-preserving cryptographic techniques supporting encrypted processing • Cryptographic techniques for integrity and verifiability of outsourced processes • European legal landscape. The WITDOM framework will be instantiated and validated in two privacy-sensitive application scenarios: e-Health: Genetic/proteomic databases protection, shared for large-scale research analyses and outsourced individual clinical analyses. Financial Services: Protection of large-scale outsourced financial data storage and processing (financial risk calculation, fraud detection,...).
