The OLYMPUS project has organized a workshop at the IFIP Summer School on Privacy and Identity Management that took place in Brugg/Windisch, Switzerland on August 20, 2019. The workshop consisted of three presentations given by ALX, UMU and IBM. The first two talks presented the currently available technologies in form of Single-Sign-On (SSO) and Privacy-Enhancing Credentials (P-ABC) and discussed their advantages and disadvantages. The final presentation then sketched how the OLYMPUS project aims to combine the convenience of SSO and the privacy of P-ABC by using the approach of a distributed and oblivious identity provider.
