Session Topic: Data Protection (Avoidance?) in EU and US

Thursday 2E

Convener: Valter Nordh

Notes-taker(s): Valter Nordh


Background:


Transfer of Personal Identifiable Information (PII) within and out of EU is regulated.

How do we enable the transfer, for access to services needed attributes, of PII within an id-federation – WITHOUT the need for signing a full mesh of contracts between all IdPs and SPs?

This talk discussed how the GÉANT Code of Conduct solves transferring PII in order to ENABLE access to a service, such as e-mail, username, Name – primarily within the EU.
