There are two problem areas of the current Internet to be solved in Future Internet scenarios - security and putting the user back in control despite the move to the Internet of things.

The paper presents two approaches to cope with the problem: The Identinet and a concept designated by the Digital Shadow. The paper presents an architecture based on these concepts.
