Join us for this School research seminar, part of the Data science seminar series and hosted by Dr Mustafa Mustafa.
The advancement of communication technologies such as the Internet, mobile communications, wireless networks and online platforms has eased the exchange of information between individuals: it has enabled collection of large amounts of personal data to an ever-increasing rate. In this talk, we focus on two use cases: the interdependent privacy on Facebook and the privacy issues of car sharing systems.
First, the speaker will present a comprehensive analysis and countermeasures of the interdependent privacy problem on Facebook; providers of third-party applications on Facebook exploit the interdependency between users and their friends. Second, the speaker will present the privacy issues in car sharing systems; owing to the massive amounts of personal information, rich information about individuals' everyday lives and habits can be extracted, enabling profiling. Finally, the speaker will present a fully-fledged privacy-enhancing protocol (sketch) for car access provision as a solution design.
