SIDN labs

Are your devices talking behind your back?
With the growth of the Internet-of-Things, more and more connected devices are sending more and more traffic to remote systems on the Internet.
In the SPIN (Security and Privacy for In-home Networks) project, SIDN Labs researches and prototypes methods to give users insight into and control over their home network. One part of this is traffic flow visualisation: how much do devices on a small network talk to the rest of the Internet, and who are they talking to?
In this session, we will discuss the issues of chatty IoT-devices, and methods and initiatives to mitigate these issues. With a live version of the SPIN system, we will show how easy it can be to get to know someone by what their ‘things’ are saying about them.
Moderator: Jelte Jansen (Research engineer – SIDN Labs)

The EU Digital Agenda as a strategic and Economic driver for organizations.


The EU has created a strong legal and regulatory framework for Identity data and for handling personal data, based on its Digital Agenda. Not only the GDPR, but also PSD2, Anti-money Laundring (AML), the new ePrivacy Regulation and the Regulation on the free flow of non-personal data, are meant to facilitate the use and processing of data as an economic driver.

The purpose of the workshop is to give insight in the several regulations towards the digital single market, different approaches to organize compliancy and building the European data Economy with new business models for data.

Our statement is that there should be paid more attention within organizations to the EU data strategy in a broad sense, stressing the commonalities and connections between the different legal instruments as adopted and prepared by the EU to entirely new business models. This will result in an embedment of strategic viewpoints on data in the general strategy of organizations. In addition, for data intensive organizations, this should be translated to a specific data strategy. 


Moderators: Arnold Roosendaal (Director - Privacy Company) & Inge de Ruijter (Associate partner - Bridgehead)




Who will provide the citizen with their digital identity? Early initiatives pointed to a central role of government itself in the control and provision of public and private digital identity. Some governments choose to seize identity,others to radically defer it to the market, while any scenario has to deal with the citizen’s own demand for control and usability.


Jeroen Rathe (Head of Digital Identity and Signatures Sector – European Commission)


Social consumer


The developments of the social consumer/end user identity and its personal identity are rapid. Consumers/end users would like to be in control of their (personal) data and identity and are looking for tools to turn around the current value chain of e.g. online retail, government or education.


Arzu Barské (Managing partner, Innovizio)

IDnext is intended to help you and all other attendees find the time and space to talk with and learn from each other. Therefore, this event will have unconference format. Take responsibility for your own learning. Follow your passion. If there are topics that you are really interested in, be prepared. This is the moment to put it on the agenda.


With the un-conference format it also put conference sessions – related to the themes mentioned above - on the agenda that will be defined the day itself. No session will be voted off or won’t happen for some other reason. All sessions are welcome. Most common methods of the un-conference format are Pecha Kucha and Open Space technology.


The un-conference format creates space for peer-to-peer learning, collaboration and creativity. At the start the whole group of attendees will gather together and be guided through creating an agenda using a method like Open Space. The exact process is not important to understand in advance – the process will become clear as it happens. The important part that all those gathered will have the opportunity to put conference sessions on the agenda. All sessions are welcome.


Moderator: Esther Makaay ( Business & eID Analyst/Architect - SIDN)


14:15 – 15:30

Private eye


Privacy is not clear-cut information anymore. Differences in perceptions of information are evident between social networks, online stores and government. It is therefore becoming a domain related concept. It seems that some services collect information on some of those (internet)-domains or stored in the cloud, and know more about a person that the person knows about himself or herself.


Moderator: Arnold Roosendaal (Director - Privacy Company) 

Andre Walter (Executive data privacy advisor - Baker McKenzie)


Self Sovereign Identity


Who will provide the citizen with their digital identity? Early initiatives pointed to a central role of government itself in the control and provision of public and private digital identity. Some governments choose to seize identity, others to radically defer it to the market, while any scenario has to deal with the citizen’s own demand for control and usability.
