Trust Innovation Funnel & Impact Assessment


The Trust Innovation Funnel & Impact Assessment Group will address the following questions:

  • Innovation and Trust – which are the main innovation funnels in building trust
  • Which innovative technologies, business models and social factors can leverage the trust in present and future internet services?
  • How can trust be measured and quantified using innovative technological and societal approach?
  • Which players have the highest impact on trust in the industry and how can they collaborate in building trust and help in the social acceptance of the future internet services?
  • What are the principal elements of the social impact of the trusted service environment?

Validation and Awareness


The purpose of this WG was to validate the concept and the framework of a large–scale, federated infrastructure for trusted, secure and reliable identities and credentials. At the same time, the Group disseminated and promoted its results, services and achievements with the intention of raising awareness with citizens, organizations, local and national governments, and all potential users of the trusted infrastructure services.

Interoperability & Standardisation


The objective of this WG was to actively contribute to interoperability and standardisation at European level on trustworthy ICT solution, i.e. by developing and adoption of a number of generic trust architectures are that are needed to stimulate the interoperability and end-to-end trustworthy solutions. The group actively contributed to interoperability and standardisation at a European level on trustworthy ICT solution, e.g. by driving an interoperable identity meta system with European partners.

In addition to the e-authentication framework that was being developed by the TDL community, other generic trust architectures were needed i.e. for mobile service and platform integrity, trusted stack, data life cycle management. The group identified topics for which standardisation is recommended and actively contributed developed solutions to the existing standardisation bodies and national governments. In addition, it was also the objective of this working group to disseminate the results of the projects across standards and non-standards organizations in order to achieve a common understanding of the issues and a harmonized view on the solutions agreed and presented by TDL members. Through its observations on practical experience from pilots, such as those run by the ATTPS project, and the trust and privacy philosophies, architectures, protocol knowledge and influence from regulation and future regulatory directions, the Working Group defined concrete work items to contribute to the standards bodies where most impact is deemed.

Industry Recommendations


This Working Group publicly debated with a broad group of stakeholders to provide input to detail the paradigm shift, challenge the interventions and underpin the meaning of trustworthiness of ICT. The group provided the TDL community with trends and priorities that increase the value of trustworthy ICT for citizens. TDL can use these insights to improve the TDL focus, program and SRA. The group spurred the TDL community with an emphasis on measurable goal-oriented requirements for products. While ensuring the optimization of economic impacts and laying with major technological trends, the Industry Recommendations Working Group elaborated valuable propositions to satisfy strong societal expectations for digital trust.
