OLYMPUS: Towards oblivious identity management for private and user-friendly services

View publication


The OLYMPUS EU project is addressing the challenges associated to the use of privacy-preserving identity management solutions by establishing an inter-operable European identity management framework, based on novel cryptographic approaches applied to currently deployed identity management technologies. In particular, OLYMPUS employs distributed cryptographic techniques to split up the role of the online IDP over multiple authorities, so that no single authority can impersonate or track its users. This paper describes the IdM ecosystem being developed in the scope of OLYMPUS, including its main building blocks, requirements and use cases.
