Olympus at ISO meeting in Sapporo, Japan
Within the scope of the standardization activities of WP7, the concepts and use cases of Olympus were presented on December 9th in the ISO/IEC JTC1/SC17 WG10 meeting held in Sapporo, Japan.
Amongst the 25-over worldwide technical experts, the topic raised big interest and discussions for possible inclusion as a Day 2 feature of the mobile Driver License (mDL), to further enhance data minimization and support a broader range of business scenarios.
The Olympus deliverable D4.1 “Cryptographic Design of an Oblivious IdM System” has been published and available for download under the Dissemination section. It defines the main cryptographic approaches and techniques used as the baseline for the oblivious IdM system.
For this, we introduce a novel building block called Distributed Partially-Oblivious Pseudorandom Function(dpOPRF) allowing us to verify passwords in Single Sign-On requests in a distributed manner. We also demonstrate an efficient dpOPRF construction that we believe is of broader interest. We further show how distributed issuance of credentials can be realized efficiently, using a new multi-signature variant of Pointcheval and Sanders signatures which allows n signers to separately compute a joint short signature on the same message.
The consortium will meet up in Tallinn on the 16th - 17th of September. The meeting is hosted by Scytales and will be the 4th project meeting.
Participation at the eID Forum
The consortium will attend the eID forum conference held in Tallinn on the 17th - 18th of September.
The consortium will be presenting at the IFIP summerschool in Brugg, Switzerland. The presentation will present the initial problem of the project and discuss the applicability of the use cases.
Multicert and Scytales will be present at the mDL interoperability event in Omaha. The event allows producers and other stakeholders in mDL technology to verify their products are interoperable.
Global IoT Summit and IoT week
The University of Murcia and the Alexandra Institute was present at the joint GIoTS and IoT week conference in Denmark.
The consortium held its 3rd project meeting in Aarhus on the 8th - 9th of May.
