DP-PPT: a protocol for Decentralized Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing

“A group of European privacy experts has proposed a decentralized system for Bluetooth-based COVID-19 contacts tracing which they argue offers greater protection against abuse and misuse of people’s data than apps which pull data into centralized pots.”


Change Model: The promotion of protocols and shared resources to protect privacy.

Pan-European Privacy-Preserving Proximity Tracing

“A health crisis must not lead to a weakening of privacy that so many generations before us have fought for.”

“The development of this technology is based on three basic principles. Firstly, it is the result of close European cooperation. Only in this way can we bundle the expertise on the continent in an efficient and targeted manner. Secondly, the technology should be internationally applicable, i.e. interoperable across national borders. In doing so, the technology will facilitate the resumption of international business and personal travel. And thirdly, the technology should be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). “

The change model is based on promoting privacy-protecting standards during the crisis through code and backend service support.
