Citazione Poseidon

The platform created through PoseIDon is the means by which the MEF creates a transparent, reliable, safe tool to implement in the PA activities. Undersecretary of the Economy and Finance, Massimo Garavaglia.

The adaptation of the PA information systems to the principles contained in the new European regulation is linked to the development of the innovative PoSeID-on platform, capable of managing and monitoring the personal data of users and public administrations. The platform will be integrated into the NoiPA system which, already managing a very large amount of personal data, will provide a concrete example of the possible benefits of the tool.


The project is developed on smart contract and blockchain technologies able to guarantee compliance with strict security standards, according to the principles of transparency towards users and encryption of sensitive data.


The project started in May 2018 will be completed by the end of 2020 with the integration of the innovative platform in the NoiPA system.
