On the Use of a Secure and Privacy-Aware eGovernment Infrastructure: the SPAGOS Framework

Year: 2015
Type of Publication: In Proceedings Keywords: eGovernment, eID, privacy, security
Book title: In the Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on e-Democracy (eDemocracy2015)
SPAGOS project brings about a framework that, unlike current approaches, fos-ters a holistic solution for security and privacy-awareness in the provision of eGovernment services. In that respect, it proposes a distributed platform spanning across all the entities participating at the eGov service provision chain and manag-ing the communication, storage and processing of information in a secure and privacy-aware manner. The core principles leveraged towards the creation of se-cure transactions are the use of advanced security and privacy mechanisms that have never been used within eGov and an advanced role of the eIDs, notably not only as passive identification tokens, but as essential functional components un-dertaking critical processing tasks.
