Multilateral Security - -

Defending one's assets without destroying one's values

Led By: Prof. Dr. Kai Rannenberg, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany

Applying security mechanisms tends to have side-effects on the assets of other parties, e.g. their security, privacy, and related civilizational values. Audit records and identification of users are early examples but not the only ones. Balancing these issues is the aim of Multilateral Security. This presentation will present examples for the issues in the areas of communication systems and the Internet of Things and discuss solution approaches both in the technical and the strategic domain.
