My name is Jaap-Henk Hoepman. I am an associate professor of privacy enhancing protocols and privacy by design in the Digital Security group at the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences of the Radboud University Nijmegen and principal scientist of the Privacy & Identity Lab.

As of October 2017 I am also an associate professor in the Law & IT department of the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen.

My main research interest are privacy by design and privacy friendly protocols for identity management and the Internet of Things.



The Norwegian Data Protection Authority (Datatilsynet) has based her guidelines for privacy by design on the privacy design strategies I developed.

On October 2017 I joined the Law & IT department of the Faculty of Law of the University of Groningen.


I actively maintain a blog discussing security, privacy and the societal impact of new technologies.

Starting March 2017 my blog is archived by the Dutch Royal Library.


Seeds are raw, unfinished, or simply far fetched ideas for which I do not have the time or the courage to develop them further. Personal favourite: 0906-SORRY. Also see Improved iPhone calendar. Feel free to browse them and get inspired. But tell me if you worked on them!

Web design inspired by the warchalking symbols designed by Matt Jones.
