Towards a model of user-centered privacy preservation

Towards a model of user-centered privacy preservation
The growth in cloud-based services tailored for users means more and more personal data is being exploited, and with this comes the need to better handle user privacy. Software technologies concentrating on privacy preservation typically present a one-size ts all solution. However, users have different viewpoints of what privacy means to them and therefore, configurable and dynamic privacy preserving solutions have the potential to create useful and tailored services without breaching any user's privacy. In this paper, we present a model of user-centered privacy that can be used to analyse a service's behaviour against user preferences, such that a user can be informed of the privacy implications of that service and what ne-grained actions they can take to maintain their privacy. We show through a case-study that the user-based
privacy model can: i) provide customizable privacy aligned with user needs; and ii) identify potential privacy breaches.

Abstract

The growth in cloud-based services tailored for users means more and more personal data is being exploited, and with this comes the need to better handle user privacy. Software technologies concentrating on privacy preservation typically present a one-size ts all solution. However, users have different viewpoints of what privacy means to them and therefore, configurable and dynamic privacy preserving solutions have the potential to create useful and tailored services without breaching any user's privacy. In this paper, we present a model of user-centered privacy that can be used to analyse a service's behaviour against user preferences, such that a user can be informed of the privacy implications of that service and what ne-grained actions they can take to maintain their privacy. We show through a case-study that the user-based
privacy model can: i) provide customizable privacy aligned with user needs; and ii) identify potential privacy breaches.
