Dynamic privacy management: a plug-in service for the middleware in pervasive computing
Context-aware applications can better meet users’ needs when sensing agents installed in the environment automatically provide input relevant to the application. However, this nonintrusive context usage may cause privacy concerns since sensitive user data could be leaked to unauthorized parties. Therefore, data privacy protection becomes one of the major issues for context-aware applications. In this paper, in order to provide services based on various levels of privacy concerns, we extend the Platform for Privacy Preferences of W3C and define a specification for representing user privacy preferences for context-aware applications. We also propose a privacy infrastructure, which could be installed as a plug-in service for middleware supporting context-aware applications. This infrastructure enables the middleware to automatically generate a privacy policy and the user preference file according to the current context. The middleware simply matches these two files to decide whethe...
