Estonian Information System Authority (RIA) is organising an international conference on 9th of May in 2018 in Tallinn (Tallinn Creative Hub – Kultuurikatel) to discuss the impact and consequences of the security risk found in the Infineon chips in autumn 2017 by the researchers at Masaryk University in the Czech Republic.
The aim of this conference is to bring together parties affected by the security risk to discuss our lessons, experiences and responsibility, because the security flaw affected many companies and countries in Europe as well as elsewhere in the world. If possible, we aim to agree on a joint plan of follow-up activities or a memorandum to provide input to different authorities who establish regulative rules. Researchers from Masaryk University have announced their participation in the conference – they will make an opening presentation about their research.
The conference is aimed at policymakers as well as specialists in the eID field, opinion leaders, representatives of authorities and companies that are dependent on the functioning of Estonian ID-cards and e-services, developers of e-government and IT systems, and other parties related to the issue from both Estonia and Europe.
