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.

12:00 – 13:15 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? Many European solutions point to a central role of government itself in the control and provision of public digital identity. Where some governments choose to seize identity, others radically defer it to the market. But there’s always tension of the private sector asking to be allowed the higher assurance options in usage of a governmental eID, which would lead to providing ‘commercial’ services by a government. Quite a few early government-based solutions now allow for usage derivation of these identities by private organisations.


In all scenarios they have to deal with the citizen’s growing demand for control and usability, without having to compromise on security.

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.

Innovation is key!


Innovation is a key strategic driver for (public and private) organizations as we enter a next decade of the digital century. Innovative ideas are given the opportunity to present and share their innovative and promising business concept to capitalize on innovation and keep the entrepreneurial spirit on going.


e.g. Blockchain has been the synonym for innovation in the last few years. What being delivered on that? Which other innovations should we keep an eye on?

Identity of things


An ever-increasing number of devices interact in our networked online world. Things are evolving into agents that operate on behalf of humans and businesses; Artificial Intelligence allows them to act autonomously. And while doing this, most of these devices are great at data-collection, logging all sorts of transactions and meta-data.


There’s a need for new forms of identity relationship management. Where are we on this? And where does privacy come into play?

13:15 – 14:15 Lunch and networking 13:15 – 14:15 Lunch and networking
14:15 – 17:15 Unconference

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.

14:15 – 15:30 Private eye

Regulation on privacy doesn’t provide a clear-cut approach. GDPR seems to raise more questions than it clarifies. Differences in perceptions of what personal information pertains are evident between social networks, online stores and government. Grounds for collecting data and the motivation behind it are reviewed, debated and shifting: when does security turn into mass surveillance and when does a profile resemble an identity?


Privacy is therefore becoming a domain and context related concept. Is data-collection and storage always evil? Where’s the boundaries for doing the right things? And what about costs and revenues involved in this field?

Self Sovereign Identity


Self-Sovereign Identity  (SSI) is an emerging paradigm around the idea that digital identity should be created, managed, disclosed, and destroyed by a subject alone, without dependency on an intermediary or central authority. It can be considered an evolution of the user-centric identity concept, but with even stronger assumptions and guarantees.

During this track, you will learn about the roots, principles and current state of the SSI concept. You will also have an opportunity to take a closer look at the various proposed technical components and protocols that make up an SSI system. You can learn about current concrete projects and initiatives that implement SSI.
