The Privacy by Design foundation creates and maintains free open source software where the privacy of the user is of the utmost importance. The foundation’s most important work, is on the identity platform IRMA, short for I Reveal My Attributes. The foundation also wants to promote the development and use of open, privacy-friendly and well-secured ICT in a general sense.

In food chains it is increasingly important to know what is happening in the chain. Not only have consumers become increasingly aware, which makes them want to know where their food comes from, but also in connection with food safety it is important to know where a product comes from and where it has been used. As a result, various platforms have been built in recent years to make food chains traceable. An example of this is fairfood.nl. These platforms have mostly been built on blockchain technology, which has its advantages and disadvantages. Our question now is, could you use IRMA to validate the chain as an alternative to blockchain?

Traceability of food chains is an important topic in the market of the Agriculture, Food and Retail business unit within Info Support. Knowing that blockchain has many disadvantages, we would like to know whether the open source identity platform IRMA can be used to validate food chains. Your assignment is therefore to investigate whether and how this platform can be used for this application. After this initial investigation, you will focus on application of IRMA for food chain validation on practical cases. This assignment offers you the opportunity to collaborate with the lead dev and architect of the open source identity platform IRMA.

Mijn technisch begeleider tijdens mijn afstudeerperiode is een voorbeeld voor mij. Hij heeft twee jaar meer ervaring, maar is nu teamlead geworden. Dat zou voor mij een mooi streven zijn. In mijn ambitiegesprek heb ik het aangegeven en we gaan er ook echt naartoe werken. Ik kijk ernaar uit!
