Privacy friendly log in with IRMA

With IRMA you log in to various services in a privacy friendly way and only release relevant properties (called attributes). IRMA is short for: I Reveal My Attributes. In the IRMA app on your mobile phone you create a so-called 'attributes passport'. When logging in or digitally signing in, you only show the attributes you wish to release. For example, your age or your e-mail address. SURF collaborates with IRMA on various applications and investigates how IRMA is valuable within the SURF environment.
