The quick development and widespread adoption of Internet technologies allows servers to make available their services and resources to possibly unknown users anywhere any-time. To regulate access to such services in open scenarios, servers require users to release information about them through the disclosure of digital certificates. Since digital certificates, as well as access control policies may include sensitive information, it is necessary to define mechanisms that permit both the client

In this chapter, we describe solutions supporting both client privacy preferences, and server disclosure policies. We illustrate the desiderata that these solutions should satisfy, and describe recent approaches that take client privacy preferences and server confidentiality into account in a negotiation process. Finally, we introduce some open issues that need further investigation.
