On the feasibility of blockchain for online surveys with reputation and informed consent support

Authors
de Sousa, HR; Pinto, A;

Publication
Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing

Abstract
Economical benefits obtained by large Internet corporations from gathering and processing user information at a global scale led the European Union to legislate on behalf of individual rights and the privacy of personal information. Data collectors, in particular, must now obtain proof of the user’s consent for every single operation comprising their data. Considering the conflicting interests of all involved parties, we propose that consent should be stored in a blockchain. By being a distributed, immutable and verifiable ledger, the blockchain presents itself as an almost tailor-made solution to harmonize conflicting interests while enabling the regulators’ supervision. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019.

On the interoperability of european national identity cards

Abstract
Electronic identity (eID) schemes are key enablers of secure digital services. eIDs have been adopted in several European countries using smart-cards for secure authentication and authorization. Towards achieving a European digital single market where European citizens can seamlessly access cross-border public services using their national eIDs, the European Union (EU) developed the electronic IDentification, Authentication and trust Services (eIDAS) regulation. eIDAS creates an interoperable framework that integrates the eIDs adopted in the EU Member States (MS). It is also an enabler of a cross-border operation, harmonized with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulation by protecting the privacy of personal data. If one can use the same procedure for authentication and authorization abroad, one can better understand new services that use eIDs. This paper provides a comparative analysis of eID cards adopted in EU MS and their privacy features in preparedness for eIDs cross-border interoperation. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019.

On the use of the blockchain technology in electronic voting systems

Alves, J; Pinto, A;

Publication
Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing

Abstract
The benefits of blockchain go beyond its applicability in finance. Electronic Voting Systems (EVS) are considered as a way to achieve a more effective act of voting. EVS are expected to be verifiable and tamper resistant. The blockchain partially fulfills this requirements of EVS by being an immutable, verifiable and distributed record of transactions. The adoption of EVS has been hampered mainly by cultural and political issues rather than technological ones. The authors believe that blockchain is the technology that, due to the overall attention it has been receiving, is capable of fostering the adoption of EVS. In the current work we compare blockchain-based EVS, identifying their strengths and shortcomings. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019.
