Dear colleagues,

I am writing to you to announce the Internet Privacy Engineering Network (IPEN).<http://www.engineeringprivacy.eu/>

The purpose of the IPEN network is to bring together developers and data protection experts with a technical background from different areas, such as data protection authorities, academia, open source and business development, and other individuals who are committed to building privacy into the tools that everybody uses every day or to developing new tools which effectively protect and enhance our privacy. The objective of the work should be to integrate data protection and privacy into all phases of the development process, from the requirements phase to production, as it is most appropriate for the development model and the application environment.  Please see our recently published webpages: www.engineeringprivacy.eu<http://www.engineeringprivacy.eu>

As a forum to assess the current state of play and to identify and possibly launch the necessary new projects, the first IPEN workshop will be held in Berlin on the 26th of September 2014.
The event is designed to be practical approach for identifying and addressing privacy gaps in existing technology, in order to develop practical solutions to the most pressing technological gaps in privacy.  A draft agenda of the workshop is on the web.

For those who are interested in participating in the initiative, we are setting up a mailing list to allow for discussions among all supporters of the initiative If you would like to be part of the mailing list please send a message to ipen at edps.europa.eu<mailto:ipen at edps.europa.eu>.  This mailing list will also be used to disseminate further information related to our upcoming workshop in Berlin in September and possibly other events later in the autumn.

At the linked pages, you will also find the latest draft agenda<https://secure.edps.europa.eu/EDPSWEB/webdav/site/mySite/shared/Documents/EDPS/IPEN/14-08-14_IPEN_Workshop_Agenda_EN.pdf> for the IPEN Workshop: Engineering Privacy into Internet Services and Apps on Friday, 26 September 2014 in Berlin.

If you would like to register for the workshop, please complete the REGISTRATION FORM<https://secure.edps.europa.eu/EDPSWEB/webdav/site/mySite/shared/Documents/EDPS/IPEN/14-08-28_REGISTRATION%20FORM_EN.pdf> and email it back to IPEN here:  ipen at edps.europa.eu<mailto:ipen at edps.europa.eu>
If you would like to encrypt your message, there is a PGP public key at the end the Practical Information<https://secure.edps.europa.eu/EDPSWEB/webdav/site/mySite/shared/Documents/EDPS/IPEN/14-08-14_IPEN_workshop_practical_information_EN.pdf> document which has further details concerning the workshop and venue.

In order to support logistics preparation, please send your registration by 7 September 2014.

Thank you for your interest in the initiative, and we look forward to carrying this forward with you.  Please do feel free to share this information further.

Yours sincerely,

IPEN Workshop
Engineering Privacy into Internet Services and Applications
Date:              Friday, 26 September 2014
                         9:00 - 17:00

                         Niederkirchnerstr. 5, 10111 Berlin-Mitte, near tube station Potsdamer Platz
Organisers:   Co-hosted by EAID, EDPS, Berlin BDI, OWASP Top 10 Privacy Risks Project, ULD,

Draft Agenda


Opening keynotes/Orientation presentations

Session 1:        Exploring the existing initiatives & tools and identifying the existing technical gaps.

The panellists will briefly present existing initiatives and tools for privacy aware development and on-going projects, and then will discuss what is covered by the existing tools and where there are gaps that still need to be filled.

BetterCrypto and TOR are examples for existing tools and developing initiatives, as well as the IETF efforts to consider privacy in the design of internet protocols. OWASP Top Ten Privacy will share information on where privacy issues need to be addressed.


Possible Keynote/orientation presentation

Session 2:        Use Cases - How can we identify and address privacy gaps?

Despite the preoccupation of users to protect their privacy, adoption of Privacy Enhancing Tools has not reached the expected scale. Lack of awareness of the existing tools, high complexity, and high cognitive costs are among the reasons provided to explain the slow start of these tools. This session will dive into the reasons of this lack of adoption by focusing on simple use cases; comparing the issues these tools cope with and the expectation of their users.  Once these gaps have been identified, the session will seek technical solutions and communication approaches that could close them.

Lunch:         Possible lunch keynote/orientation presentation

Session 3:  Use Case Break-Out Groups focusing on where privacy friendly tools are still needed.
2 - 4 Break-Out Groups will each discuss one of a number of selected use cases. There will be one moderator and one rapporteur per group.
Each group will focus on developing solutions to gaps in existing privacy initiatives, or other well-known privacy issues. In the short time available, groups may address the following topics depending on outcomes from Session 2 and selected use cases - definition and scope of the problem; impacts on other technologies and actors; the limits and benefits of the proposed solutions; practical steps to implementing the proposal.
Examples of possible Use Case suggested for Break-Out Groups:
*         Integration of 3rd party services in web sites
*         Transparent Privacy Settings
*         Tools against digital trails
*         Tool for mobile tracking
*         Password registration
*         Policy-aware Web
*         Secure transfer
*         Other


Plenary:          Reports from the Session 3 Break-Out Groups by the rapporteurs.

Conclusions:   Where to go from here?

Closing keynote

An after-party for participants may be arranged in the evening after the workshop.
