The project I am working on aims at designing and developing a model and a system to protect user personal data in IoT ecosystems by moving from a service-centric way of securing personal data (which is today the de facto standard) to a user-centric approach. This will empower individuals with tools to manage their privacy preferences over data produced through different IoT/wearable devices. Adopting a user-centric model will allow us to design a system that offers individuals more fine-grained control on how their data are released, we plan to achieve an information-sharing approach driven also by trust relationships with data consumers. The system will be complemented with tools leveraging on data mining and machine learning techniques able to: automatically adjust user privacy settings when new devices enter the personal pervasive ecosystem and adapt privacy settings to change with minimal user intervention.
