Pseudonymity in Translational Research

Prof. Dr. Klaus A. Kuhn
Prof. Dr. Claudia Eckert

Start of PhD-work at GSISH:
September 2009

Project Description:
In translational medical research, complex data from heterogeneous sources have to be integrated, e.g. clinical data, study data, bio-bank data, images and the results of "omics" analyses (genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, etc.). IT security and data safety poses significant challenges as data are highly sensible and their use may be restricted to specific purposes only. Patient privacy has to be guaranteed, and access privileges need to be kept to a minimum. Informed consent and anonymity are principles of central relevance.
The goal of my dissertation will be to perform research on security and pseudonymity concepts for health information systems that ensure a maximum degree of integrity on one hand and anonymity on the other hand. Aspects like k-anonymity and prevention of linkage need to be explored.
Existing data protection concepts have to be evaluated and further developed regarding requirements for integrating various types of data sources. Single-Sign-on, identity and access rights as well as information flow management will play an important role from the application perspective. On the research side, appropriate security models and security primitives need to be investigated to allow one to rigorously argue about the security of the developed concepts and architectures against various attacks and forms of abuse.
