Privacy and Context Aware IoT Applications

Mercoledì 22 maggio alle 12:00 in aula M1.9, edificio Matematica, Dipartimento FIM, Modena

Relatore: dott. Luca Bedogni

Abstract: Nowadays, mobile devices are daily used with several applications which benefit from a number of information about the user context, such as the position, the activity, or the people she is hanging out with. Also in popular scenarios like IoT and Industry 4.0, information about the context allows for better service personalisation and tailoring. Novel services are constantly developed, although at the same time their use may tamper the user privacy, exposing private information to potentially malicious users. In this talk, we will dive through some of these approaches, which enable novel applications to ease everyday lives, though at the same time evaluating potential privacy risks for the end user. We will conclude by analysing some of the possible countermeasures to bear context awareness while keeping higher privacy levels.
