27th Chaos Communication Congress
We come in peace

Sylvia Johnigk


The acronym stands for Intelligent Information System Supporting Observation, Searching and Detection for Security of Citizens in Urban Environment. A total of 17 partners in nine member states are developing an infrastructure for linking existing surveillance technologies to form one mighty instrument for controlling the people. They are laying the foundation of a European police state, since INDECT's results serve to increase the effectiveness of police operation on the national and European level. INDECT is funded under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), the security-related research of which provides € 1.4 billion Euro for more than 60 partly interlaced projects.

This Is What the Police Will Work with in the Future:

·Unmanned aerial vehicles/drones with surveillance camera and sensors ·Software (for cameras etc.) to identify supposedly suspicious behavior or hostile intent ·Auto-tracking of mobile objects ·Software (autonomous agents) to monitor virtual spaces such as discussion forums in the Internet or social networks ·Trojan horses which record users’ private computer activity ·Safeguards, such as watermarking, to allow sophisticated controls on recorded images for evidence, and to index, analyse and administer multimedia content (such as video) ·A search engine combining direct search of data from the real and the virtual world

The presentation deals with:

  • Goals and Partners
  • The EU's Current Security Policy
  • Ethically Clean - Censorship in Disguise? Ethics Board for INDECT.
  • Critical Assessment of INDECT-Research
