Abstract [en]

The Right-to-be-Forgotten is a part of the new proposal of the Data Protection Directive of the European Union. It was created to react to the challenges in protecting a person’s right of privacy which were caused by the ongoing evolution of technology in our digital age. In the course of the evaluation of the new proposal we created a list of requirements to find technical implementations which could accomplish them. Based on these requirements we established the current state of the art. The EnCoRe project as well as the Vanish project turned out to be the most promising two candidates. EnCoRe on the one hand describes a whole framework which has to be implemented to function. Vanish on the other hand uses existing infrastructures and cryptography to meet its goals. We compared the systems to the requirements of the Right-to-be-Forgotten with the result that both fulfil those to a big extend. Nevertheless there is still much development needed to be able to implement a full-fledged Right-to-be-Forgotten. Therefore future focus should be put on the combination of the different approaches, their further enhancement, securing the environment and improving remote enforcement.
