CEN-CENELEC JWG8 on Privacy Management of Security Products and Related Services


The European commission has issued in early 2015 a mandate to European Standardisation Organisations (or ESOs), CEN, CENELEC, ETSI) to work on a roadmap of standards covering the privacy management of security products and related services

Consequently, CEN/CENELEC has decided to launch a joint working group JWG8, the secretariat of which will be managed by AFNOR (France).

The objective is to define a roadmap and work plan for October 2015

  • During the IPEN workshop it was made clear that the concept of security products should be more clearly defined (in particular on the contradiction between surveillance and privacy)

CEN/TC225 - AIDC technologies

As stated in Wikipedia : Automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) refers to the methods of automatically identifying objects, collecting data about them, and entering that data directly into computer systems (i.e. without human involvement). Technologies typically considered as part of AIDC include bar codes, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), biometrics, magnetic stripes, Optical Character Recognition (OCR), smart cards, and voice recognition. AIDC is also commonly referred to as “Automatic Identification,” “Auto-ID,” and "Automatic Data Capture."

Data Protection, Privacy and Information Aspects of RFID


In December 2008, the European Commission addressed the Mandate M/436 to CEN, CENELEC and ETSI in the field of ICT as applied to RFID systems. The Mandate M/436 was accepted by the ESOs in the first months of 2009. The Mandate addresses the data protection, privacy and information aspects of RFID, and is being executed in two phases.

Phase 1, completed in May 2011, identified the work needed to produce a complete framework of future RFID standards. The Phase 1 results are contained in the ETSI Technical Report (http://www.etsi.org/deliver/etsi_tr/187000_187099/187020/01.01.01_60/tr_187020v010101p.pdf), which was published in May 2011.

Phase 2 is concerned with the execution of the standardisation work programme identified in the first phase. This second phase ended in July 2014 with the publication of different technical reports and the publication of two European standards:

The Internet has become a critical infrastructure for both businesses and individual users. Growing dependence on networked digital systems has brought with it an increase in both the variety and quantity of cyber-threats. The different methods governing secure transactions in the various Member States of the European Union sometimes make it difficult to assess the respective risks and to ensure adequate security. Building on our world-leading expertise in the security of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), we set up a new Cyber Security committee (TC CYBER) in 2014 to meet the growing demand for standards to protect the Internet and the communications and business it carries.

TC CYBER is working closely with relevant stakeholders to develop appropriate standards to increase privacy and security for organisations and citizens across Europe. The committee is looking in particular at the security of infrastructures, devices, services and protocols, as well as security tools and techniques to ensure security. It offers security advice and guidance to users, manufacturers and network and infrastructure operators.

ETSI Cloud Standards Coordination final report v.1.0


The overall objective of the Cloud Standards Coordination initiative led by ETSI is to identify a detailed map of the standards required to support a series of policy objectives defined by the European Commission, in particular in critical areas such as security, interoperability, data portability and reversibility. (http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=COM:2012:0529:FIN:EN:PDF)

The report includes the collection and classification of over 100 cloud computing Use Cases, many of which have a personal data protection focus (e.g. UC SD 3.3.3. Processing Sensitive Data)
