TITLE: A Literature Study on Privacy Patterns Research

ABSTRACT: Facing the implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018, many commercial software providers will soon need to adapt their products to new privacy-related constraints. Privacy patterns defined for different aspects of the software engineering process promise to be a useful concept for this task. In this situation, it seems valuable to characterize the state of the research related to privacy patterns. This talk presents the results of an extensive literature study on privacy patterns for Privacy by Design.

BIO: Sebastian’s research interests focus on software architecture and design, software evolution, and software quality. More specifically, he currently works on methods and tools helping software engineers mitigate software architecture erosion and technical debt. He is in particular interested in evaluating these and other approaches empirically in collaboration with industry.

09:00-10:00 Keynote talk: Prof. Dr. Audun Jøsang, University of Oslo, Norway.

TITLE: The same one as last time: Recognizing entities on the Internet

ABSTRACT: Every entity that communicates via the Internet must have an identity in order to take part in the communication. The number of entities (people, systems and things) communicating over the Internet grows exponentially, hence the management of their identities becomes increasingly complex from the technical, business and legal perspectives. This talk analyses the major trends in identity management and points out challenges and opportunities.

BIOGRAPHY: Audun Jøsang is professor in cybersecurity at the University of Oslo. His research focuses on big data security analytics, identity management, trusted computing, intelligence analysis, and reasoning under uncertainty. He has worked as Associate Professor at QUT in Australia, as telecommunications engineer for Alcatel in Belgium and for Telenor in Norway. He holds a Master’s degree in Information Security from Royal Holloway College, University of London, and a PhD from NTNU in Norway.
