The Security & Digital Identities group is one of the SCS Cluster's three “Smart Specialisation Areas”. Drawing on the Cluster's three strategic business lines (microelectronics, telecommunications, software) and positioned mainly on technologies (semiconductors, cryptography, secure hardware architectures, smart cards, secure objects, software & solutions), the Security & Digital Identities group brings together highly proficient players, industrialists and academics, and holds a unique and differentiated positioning in two fields: digital (and embedded) security, and digital ID management.

SECURITY: A FOUNDATION FOR SECURE COMMUNICATING SOLUTIONS

Positioned at the core of the stakes inherent in the digital economy, this theme will become even more critical with the development of the diverse domains concerned by issues associated with the protection of sensitive and/or personal data. Presently among them, and at varying degrees of maturity, are care for the elderly (house automation), energy saving (smart electric meters), personalized medical monitoring (personal medical record), online advertising and personalized services (online commercial incentive), geolocalization (source of tomorrow's services) and social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Google+).

The Security & Digital Identities theme is therfore vital for our economy and our future: at stake is the protection of sensitive and/or personal data belonging to states, private companies and citizens. In the words of France's Digital Economy Minister: “No modern economy can thrive if we are unable to guarantee information system security!“(Fleur Pilgrim, Digital Economy Minister, FIC 2013)
