2010 (English)In: Proceedings of the 4th International Workshop on Trustworthy Internet ofPeople, Things & Services (Trustworthy IoPTS 2010), 2010Conference paper (Refereed)
The Future Internet, in its different variants, promises a global connectivity of people, things and services.However, in order to develop its full potential and to achieve an accepted, seamless integration of Internet use into daily lives, severe security issues have to be addressed. In this paper, we propose to establish security and trustworthiness by means of an integrated identity and access management. Especially, we sketch the foundations of a novel identity and access management approach that is tailored for the Future Internet. We provide mechanisms for flexible modeling and description of digital user identities with support to transaction-based privacy protection, access to personal data, flexible third party accountability and end-to-end secure communication. The mechanisms are tailored for the use on a trusted personaldevice called Minimal Entity, which provides a trustworthy gateway to benefit from the offerings of the Future Internet.
