Our mission focuses on the provision of key technological enablers for trust, privacy and security -with focus on decentralised and user-centric identity management for persons and smart things, distributed ledger-based solutions and privacy enhancing technologies- enabling secure interoperability across domains and borders over heterogeneous digital services value chains and data spaces, in compliance with regulatory frameworks such as GDPR, revised eIDAS regulation (European Digital Identity Framework), NIS 2 Directive, Single Digital Gateway Regulation and European Data Strategy, among others. By placing people and their digital rights at the centre of research and technology, we focus on developing technology assets and trustworthy solutions aligned with Atos Cybersecurity Services and Products roadmaps and offerings for Atos customers, fostering competitive advantages in an increasingly complex and distributed environment with multiple state-of-art technologies and promoting the sustainability of the digital transformation.
The Blockchain, Identity and Privacy Unit builds on many years of experience accumulated in projects from multiple European research and innovation funding programmes delivering tangible value in multiple domains to end-users and strategic stakeholders to operate in secure and trusted digital environments. It acts as a reference point within Atos Research & Innovation to provide resources, technical support, and expertise over a comprehensive range of research and innovation initiatives related to the technologies under its scope, be it research on the technologies themselves, improvements, linking with other technologies, or research about applications in specific vertical markets, across domains, or in relation to strategic industry and policy-driven initiatives.
