AbstractThe recently applied General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to protect all EU citizens from privacy and data breaches in an increasingly data-driven world. Consequently, this deeply affects the factory domain and its human-centric automation paradigm. Especially collaboration of human and machines as well as individual support are enabled and enhanced by processing audio and video data, e.g. by using algorithms which re-identify humans or analyse human behaviour. We introduce most significant impacts of the recent legal regulation change towards the automations domain at a glance. Furthermore, we introduce a representative scenario from production, deduce its legal affections from GDPR resulting in a privacy-aware software architecture. This architecture covers modern virtualization techniques along with authorization and end-to-end encryption to ensure a secure communication between distributes services and databases for distinct purposes.
