Protecting Access to People Location Information [chapter]

Urs Hengartner, Peter Steenkiste
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present several challenges that arise for the specification and implementation of policies controlling access to location information.  ...  We show how our design of an access control mechanism for a system providing people location information addresses the challenges. Our mechanism can be deployed in different environments.  ...  Namely, these certificates could potentially not only protect access to people location information, but also to other kinds of information that is gathered in a similar way as people location information  ...

Is My Information Private? Geo-Privacy in the World of Social Media

Bandana Kar, Rina Ghose
2014 International Conference Geographic Information Science  
It can be dated back to "media privacy" of 1361 that was enacted to protect people from peeping toms in England.  ...  These actions led to the enactment of a number of privacy policies, specifically, focusing on data protection -mis-use of data and/or malicious access of data by unauthorized persons.  ...  These actions motivated people to protect their privacy, especially, access to personal information, and led to the enactment of a number of privacy policies focusing on data protection, i.e., mis-use  ...

Protecting Smartphones Based on Usage Patterns

Weifeng Chen
2017 International Journal of Computer & Software Engineering  
On the other hand, more and more sensitive information is now stored or accessible on smartphones such as Visa Signature or Paypal apps. Smartphones need to be protected more than ever before.  ...  With all these applications, people tend to access their smartphones frequently and instantly, i.e., they want to use the phone right away.  ...  In each phone usage, no matter how long the user uses the phone, information such as the access time, access locations, and access intervals, can be collected.  ...

Privacy protection in location-sharing services

Fei Xu, Jingsha He, Matthew Wright, Jing Xu
2010 2010 International Conference on Computer Application and System Modeling (ICCASM 2010)  
Location privacy is of utmost concern for location-sharing services. There is already a full agreement that users would like to have the complete control over their location information.  ...  Existing privacy protection methods often let users specify their privacy peferences to the service provider and thus not only fail to consider the dynamic nature of privacy preferences but also fail to  ...  The privacy access policies related to these three people that are set by Alice are as follows: SDP1: when the requester is Bob, immediately approve the access request and send Bob my location information  ...

Preserving Privacy in Context-Aware Systems

Pramod Jagtap, Anupam Joshi, Tim Finin, Laura Zavala
2011 2011 IEEE Fifth International Conference on Semantic Computing  
We present a framework to provide users with appropriate levels of privacy to protect the personal information their mobile devices are collecting, including the inferences that can be drawn from the information  ...  Recent years have seen a confluence of two major trends -the increase of mobile devices such as smart phones as the primary access point to networked information and the rise of social media platforms  ...  A privacy policy such as "Share my location with teachers on weekdays from 9am-5pm" allows a group of people defined by the user as "teachers" to access user's GPS location between the specified hours.  ...

Survey on Privacy-Preserving by a Trajectory for Participatory Sensing in Wireless Sensor Networks

Mrs. Shreetha, Mr. S. Girish
2015 International Journal of Engineering Research and  
The adversary is used to collect and analyses participators location and trajectory data, from which privacy of the system is harmed.  ...  Based on this a theoretical mix zone model with time as a factor from the graph theory is proposed, from which loss of information is less and hence it is cost effective, privacy is protected.  ...  Privacy of location information here is actually controlled access to information [2] . The methods proposed here is anonymity set and mix networks.  ...

2013 Proceedings of the sixth ACM conference on Security and privacy in wireless and mobile networks - WiSec '13  
Finally, we present a novel concept on how location information can actually help users to control the flood of potentially infringing or interesting media.  ...  An increasing number of modern devices are capable of embedding location information and other metadata into created content.  ...  Image access is defined on a per-album base: It can be public, restricted to people who know the secret URL, or to the owner. Geo-location data can be protected separately.  ...
