NEXTLEAP aims to create, validate, and deploy communication and computation protocols that can serve as pillars for a secure, trust-worthy, annotable and privacy-respecting Internet that ensures citizens fundamental rights. For this purpose NEXTLEAP will develop an interdisciplinary internet science of decentralisation that provides the basis on which these protocols will be built.
Considered as a right or as a commodity, cryptography is changing the nature of human relationships and consequently how our political environment is designed in a blurry balance between public and private space. This evening session is intended to bring a socio-political perspective on encrypted communication and its political governance or control, on the occasion of the EuroCrypt conference.
NEXTLEAP will be hosting an all day training and use-case elicitation work so we can help your code maintain privacy and be compliant with Data Protection.
The second part of the day will be the launch event of the project on the significance of next generation, secure, privacy-enhanced Internet systems. Among other speakers, Bernard Stiegler, Phil Rogaway, and more will participate in a roundtable discussion.
Registration is mandatory because of max allowed attendees.
NEXTLEAP combines expertise from across different disciplines in order to develop a set comprehensive answers to questions surrounding privacy and society. Our team is spread across Europe and includes specialists in computer science, formal protocol verification, sociology, social philosophy, cryptography and engineering.
