Interests

My research is inspired by practical problems, and often interdisciplinary in nature. My main area of research is privacy by design. There I focus on methods to translate vague legal data protection norms into more concrete engineering design principles, and tools that help engineers implement privacy into the systems they develop. Apart from that the following research topics are of interest to me: privacy and the Internet of Things, advanced use of smart-cards, and privacy and identity management. I also started studying blockchain / distributed ledger technology, mostly to counter the hype surrounding it... I am of course interested in cryptography [:-}] and information security in general See also.

I am also interested in the social and legal aspects of technology, and like to engage in the public debate about security and privacy. I explore these issue on my blog.

Privacy Design Startegies

I have developed eight privacy design strategies that make privacy by design more concrete. They translate vague (legal) privacy norms into more concrete design goals that engineers are more comfortable to work with.

More information can be found in the 'The Little Blue book'.

The icons for each of the strategies are also available in pdf and SVG format.
