The main purpose of INCOGNITO project is to develop a user-friendly authentication system that offers secure digital identity, privacy, and anonymity through the use of anonymous credentials. The program aims at designing and implementing an infrastructure that supports the anonymity of the user by using cryptographic anonymous credentials as well as Federated Login solutions. Also, this system, which can be a central entity, or distributed using blockchain, enables the user to consolidate, manage, and verify their identity safely by using physical identity documents and online accounts on the Internet.
The INCOGNITO consortium includes the University of Piraeus, Cyprus University of Technology, the certSIGN computer security provider, the telecommunication operator Telefonica, LSTech, and KAIZEN Digital Services S.A. The ultimate goal of the program is to evaluate the aforementioned technologies by end-users. More information on the work already done in this area by Cyprus University of Technology can be found at the web site of the ReCRED (https://www.recred.eu/ ) research project, which has recently ended. Cyprus University of Technology was the technical manager of ReCRED.
