  • MEMdoc
    This project is a collaboration between the University of Bern :Institute for evaluative research in the medicine IEFM and our group. Web developed a privacy oriented architecture for medicine. The project is centred around a platform for medical documentation, that collects data into medical registers. Examples Hip implants registers, Spine operation registers, Ophthalmology or Oncology registers. In order to respect patient privacy, our architecture segregates patient identity related information, that are stored locally in the country of treatment, and medical information that are anonymous and centralized in Bern for statistical purposes. This architecture offers the opportunity to both respect patient need for privacy and achieve critical mass to produce valuable statistics.

  • MIAMI
    This project is funded by the Swiss confederation (CTI) and done in collaboration with the firm Combo AG (Solothurn) gigermd.com. We develop a tool for analysing the mass of data produced by the medical device "Giger MD". This device is used on patients suffering neuronal diseases (Parkinson, Multiple Sclerosis, Spina bifida, ...). We aim at providing the tool for analysing the effects of the device on the patient.

  • BioCrypt - One-way encrypted biometrics
    More and more applications rely on biometrics to authenticate or identify physical persons. The project aims to develop biometric pseudonyms to overcome major threats for security, privacy and convenience in today's use of biometrics. For further information, please contact Prof. Dr. Bernhard Anrig.
  • FIDIS
    FIDIS (Future of the IDentity in the Information Society) was a network of excellence (NoE) of the 6th framework programm of the European Union. The consortium was composed of 24 partners and was led by the University of Frankfurt (Germany). Partners where academic (University of Freiburg (Germany), KU Leuven (Belgium), INSEAD (France), Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium) ...), industrial (Microsoft Aachen, IBM Zurich) and also SMEs (Axsionics (Switzerland), SIRIX (Germany)). The project defined new concepts regarding the identity in the new emerging information society. We particularly worked on the concept of "virtual person" and its applicability as a new model of interactions between actors in the information society.
