IBM Research – Zurich
Role in the project
IBM Research – Zurich will use its scientific skills to design and implement the cryptographic protocols needed for ensuring strong authentication and data privacy in the context of automated driving and vehicle-to-cloud communication. It will contribute to the specifications and architecture for the data privacy mechanisms of the ICT4CART framework and use its experience in overseeing the implementation of such protocols and their integration into real-world pilots from previous projects.
About IBM Research – Zurich
IBM Research - Zurich (IBM Research GmbH) is one of the 12 IBM research labs worldwide and employs more than 400 researchers from over 20 countries who work on projects in computer science, communications, optoelectronics, and physics. Related to information security, more than 30 researchers are focusing on privacy, cryptography, secure systems, and security management. IBM Research – Zurich played a leading role in the development of IBM’s Enterprise Privacy Architecture (EPA) and hosts a world leading research group in privacy and security technologies.
The security and privacy group at IBM Research – Zurich is internationally recognized for its research in privacy-enhancing technologies and cryptographic protocols. In particular, IBM Research – Zurich has years of experience in building out a suite of cryptographic protocols for privacy-preserving identity management from their initial invention and publication in scientific research papers to making the core crypto routines as well as a full policy language framework available open source on Github and executing several success pilots in different EU projects (ABC4Trust, FutureID, AU2EU).
