What standards, standard setting and certifications processes can enable users to reliably assess their actual trustworthiness? What scale of investments are needed? How likely is it that they would sustainably be legally allowed?  (Backgrounder on Challenge A)

What are the core paradigms of such certification processes? (Backgrounder on Challenge B)

The confidentiality and integrity of banking e-service seems ultimately constrained by that of terribly vulnerable client-side devices. Cryptocurrencies have raised hopes but also many doubts. What are the opportunities of combining recent advances, like end-2-end encryption and blockchain, with and ultra-high assurance IT endpoint security?
