Abstract

Function creep, i.e. when the purpose specification principle is breached, is a major challenge for personal data processing operations. This is especially a clear risk in the field of Identity Management when biometric data are deployed. The concept of privacy by design, set forth in the data protection reform, could, in principle, contribute to mitigating function creep. An implementation is discussed hereunder in relation to Automated Border Control (‘ABC’).

Keywords: function creep, automated border control, ABC, identity management, biometric data, privacy by design, automated erasure, attribute based credentials, pseudo-identities
