At the same time, the contractor will identify existing implemented security measures to protect personal data in a couple of Member States.
LOT 2 – Securing personal data in online environments
The recommendations regarding encryption specifications and security solutions must be pro-actively reviewed in line with the changing circumstances (i.e. new vulnerabilities and attacks, better computational power) . For this activity the contractor is expected to develop a methodology & structure for a new activity with the goal of establishing a list of recommended cryptographic algorithms (e.g. block ciphers, hash functions, signature schemes, etc) and recommended keysizes and other parameter settings (where applicable) to reach specified security objectives.
