Role in ODYSSEUS project

Thales contribution will consist of solution of identity establishment (with ID proofing and electronic document and biometric verifications) and creation of virtual document to be stored in cloud, but under a control of the user with exception of investigation of incidents by border law enforcement authorities.

Thales will provide a m2m interface to add flexibly additional attributes by 3rd party to accommodate the changes happening over time. On backend we will implement interfaces for data exchange with cryptographic engine that will allow decryption of the data encrypted by key stored in the system. More in detail, the virtualized document will be cryptographically linked to user’s mobile application to ensure only the user has authorization to manipulate the data, but there will be a conditional read access of LEA in case of investigation. The cloud storage will provide encryption and authorization services and will allow to share data with other border control and boarding services based on users consent and its time validity.
