Trusted identities are key to IT security

Employee, parent, association member, account holder - we use different identities in different contexts. We identify ourselves with passwords, chip cards, biometric features and much more. But even postal parcels, trams and power stations have long been networked in an Internet of Things. Securing these identities is just as important for our own security and that of our property as it is for the functioning of our infrastructures. Fraunhofer FOKUS researches and develops secure solutions for digital identities for industrial and administrative contexts.

The Digital Public Services business unit offers its customers the following services:

  • Electronic identities and their secure utilisation in various scenarios and solutions
  • Privacy technologies and user-centred identity management to protect identity data
