The “AUDITOR” research project is aimed at designing, implementing in an exemplary way, and testing an EU-wide data protection certification of cloud services for long-term application.
Cloud service providers can use the AUDITOR certificate to prove compliance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation.
The AUDITOR project strives for Europe-wide recognition for AUDITOR to become fully effective on both the national and the EU member states level.
The AUDITOR certification process developed will be tested and validated in practice. We planned to validate research findings in three use cases.
Certification according to the EU General Data Protection Regulation is in the interest of all parties:
Cloud Service Providers
Cloud providers that can offer transparency and protection through certification.
Evaluation and Certification Authorities
Evaluation and certification authorities can embed AUDITOR into their portfolio.
Cloud customers that are to cooperate with cloud providers offering sufficient guarantees for compliance with data protection only.
The protection of end consumers’ data is the main objective of the AUDITOR certification of could services.
