Abstract

This DIN SPEC in accordance with the PAS procedure has been drawn up by a DIN SPEC (PAS)-consortium set up on a temporary basis. This DIN SPEC has been developed and approved by the authors named in the foreword of the DIN SPEC. This DIN SPEC establishes general principles for and methods of handling personal data in BC/DLT systems. It specifies technical and organizational measures for data protection while taking into account the principles of “privacy by design” as well as specifications that are inspired by legal frameworks, such as the GDPR. The document defines relevant terms for both technical as well as legal experts and establishes a methodological framework that helps to identify types of data (encrypted and not encrypted) as well as mapping legal principles of the GDPR to technical measures available to improve data protection or mitigate the risk of processing personal data in BC/DLT systems. This DIN SPEC is aimed towards establishing a high level of privacy in BC/DLT systems. This document is applicable to all BC/DLT systems.
