As a new member of the competence network TeleTrusT, esatus AG attended the internal workshop organized by the association, proceeding from June 15 to June 6, 2016 in Munich. During the event current targets and working results of the association and thematic working groups were presented. Dr. André Kudra, CIO of esatus AG, gave a speech spearheading the utilization of Blockchain technology in the field of Identity and Access entitled “Identity & Access über die Blockchain managen – Anwendungsszenarien, verfügbare Lösungen und eine kritische Analyse“ on behalf of esatus AG. After his speech the TeleTrusT members discussed how using the Blockchain technology in Identity & Access use cases is significant for the association. This resulted in the foundation of the new working group “Blockchain” including interested members of TeleTrusT, which want to actively shape the future of Identity & Access Management by using the Blockchain technology. Dr. André Kudra operates as the leader of this new working group.
On September 7, 2016 TeleTrusT organized a kick-off meeting of the new working group in their headquarters in Berlin.
