Trustworthy PKI - the EU GDPR/eIDAS Game Changer

Trustworthy PKI enables Trustworthy Anonymity and Trustworthy Pseudonymity within standard PKI. With Trustworthy PKI a citizen can generate a new Qualified Signatures and sign with non-repudiation and accountability to a court without generating linkable personal data.

The power of CitizenKey - Covid-19 as the perfect Privacy by Design case

A rich test of any Identity framework is the ability to enable Trustworthy Anonymity in complex applications where accountability is not required or desired but integrity is vital. Healthcare Research is by far the most important field here. A reduced and particular complex subset is that of an infectious pandemic such as Covid-19 and the ability to respond to all distributed aspects of this from early detection and mitigation to enabling anonymous research across the infection chain to detect the social processes and spreading mechanisms.

Høringssvar - revurdering af GDPR

English resume of a danish post Citizen First has forwarded a response (in danish) to a Danish Ministry of Justice hearing about Review of GDPR.

GDPR has created a stir of complaints among developers and business operator who find it hard to deal with the requirement of "data protection". No big Surprise - as it is almost impossible to secure and ensure digital processes protect, respect and adopt to individual need after citizens are identified and control over the process and data have transferred.

Attempt to solve the problem through weakening rights forget

  1. that the problem is both real and solvable.
  2. that the cause of the problem is identification in the first place and that BigData AI is a systemic negative spiral damaging citizens and society.
  3. that GDPR actually balance the need for continuity with the need to restructure digital design to put citizens back in control with pseudonym signature as the most important element.

Humble introduction to CitizenKey in Danish

CitizenKey is to many a revolutionary new way of looking at digital design from a citizen-centric and trustworthy perspective. The essence being that we almost always can solve problems better without creating or using personal data at all.

When you have understood the implication, you will very likely get a eureka moment and wonder why we haven't done so long ago !?

The answer to that question is multiple elements.

  • It is complex - digital identity is on of our most challenging problems ever, also called a wicked problem.
  • Hard and software are only recently matured to solve the problem.
  • Internet standards was from the start designed for surveillance, not for empowerment.
  • We have an enormous technology debt in billions of devices and applications etc. that are not easily upgraded to trustworthy computing
  • Powerful players make fortunes and build power from surveillance and profiling - they won't voluntarily surrender that power
  • Digital technology scale vulnerabilities and problems while often eliminating traditional limits - this means that many fields require and update in theory and thinking which does not happen overnight.
  • Digital problems are multi-competence in world where education go in-dept on one competence meaning that few people are schooled in lateral thinking
  • Humans are good at learning, but horribly bad at unlearning and relearning - when first the bad paradigms of e.g. platform thinking was introduced it takes a generation to unlearn what people think they know
  • In the digital space, we need to answer questions, we never dared to ask before.

Digital Society is a Designed Society and all our mistakes scale out of control.

Here is an humble introduction to CitizenKey as a bid to overcome the complexities and apparent contradictions (in Danish)

Blinding-at-use vs. blinding-at-issuance

PKI and Biometrics ID has and will deterministically fail and blinded cryptography and ZKF will take over.

The questions is what kind of blinded cryptography. The media is swamped with writings assuming one particular kind of blinding - also called Blinding-at-use - which is best case what e.g. blockchain can achieve. Problem is that this is just yet another failure as Blinding-at-issuance is the way to solving the problems without creating bigger problems.

Cartel standards such as DID is simply pushing the problem without even considering the implications.
