As part of my PhD, I am currently conducting a research project into Privacy, Confidentiality, Trust, Safety, Risk and Security of ICT Systems for Health Informatics. The project aims to evaluate whether an anonymous credential based identity management system can enhance user participation in the Australian Personally Controlled Electronic Health Records (PCEHR) system. In simple terms, anonymous credentials are a digital or virtual form of a common real world credential such as a driver’s licence, birth certificate, Medicare card, passport, credit card or any other form of membership credential like a student card or library card etc. Anonymous credential systems give the owner the ability to prove online that they are in possession of a valid credential (like a drivers license etc.) without revealing any information contained within them. This provides for strong security without compromising the privacy of information of users of web services and may change the way by which individuals identify themselves over the Internet.
