On the December 6, 2018 CIS WG call, we came to a rough consensus about what scenario we would like to show in the next version of the demo: The Kantara Initiative Privacy Control Panel system.

EIC and Identiverse have accepted our proposal to show the demo. Will be submitting a proposal to ID North and MyData.

System Concept

The following is a very early draft description of the system we will demonstrate at EIC 2019 and other events.


To help decide which products will perform parts of the demo (Table copied from 2019-02-14 Meeting notes (CR) DRAFT on February 20 2019):




Data controller application


The application that the person interacts with - it orchestrates the Notice display, acceptance of terms, creation of receipt and delivery of the intended service

Orchestrates the person's "Consent Journey"

Option 1: Web application

Option 2: Mobile app

** For example, In Demo v1 it was the Bookstore app



Receipt generator (API?)


This role might be functionality within another role. It takes inputs from the data controller application and returns a conformant receipt in JSON or JWT format

Option 1: Functionality within the (A) Data Controller Application

Option 2: Functionality within the receipt management platform

Option 3: Standalone receipt generator


Receipt storage facility


This is the storage place for the receipts. It could be as simple as the downloads folder or a personal data store or browser local storage or other API

The storage facility MUST be readable by the PCP Dashboard role

Option 1: Functionality comes from the Operating System

Option 2: Functionality included in the (A) Data Controller Application

Option 3: Functionality accessible via the receipt management platform

Option 4: Functionality in a separate application that does personal data management

Option 5: Function accessible via Browser APIs (e.g. local browser storage)

** For example, "wallet" concept; Downloads folder; browser storage; etc (consent manager)

PCP Dashboard and
Control Panel Function 


Dashboard - Reads the receipt storage facility and displays the person's receipts in some meaningful and usable way

Control Panel - The part where a person clicks on a button against a receipt that causes an action to start

Option 1: Functionality exists in a product today

Option 2: New product required

Option 3: Functionality exists via a receipt management platform and can be called

Receipt management platform


Communication substrate - e.g. one possible function: when user clicks on button to exercise a data subject right, this calls the platform which sends instructions to the data controller to take

Receipt Viewer app


This displays a receipt - takes JSON or JWT as input and displays in human-friendly way - to allow the presenter to walk through the contents of a receipt with the audience

Option 1: Functionality exists in (D) Dashboard/control panel

Option 2: Standalone application or web site

Option3: Functionality exists in (E) Receipt management platform

Data controller registration(ACH: What does this do?)

Maybe OpenConsent?

Receipt language translatorRANDOM IDEA - Display the receipt in a different language e.g. French
