Project title: Human Aspects of Privacy in IoT
Project description: My PhD project studies privacy concepts in IoT from the point of view of the user. Various graphical and intuitive representations of privacy concepts are developed in this PhD and tested in use cases taken from various pilots developed in projects and research related to Gemini center for IoT (which my PhD is part of) as: air quality monitoring, elderly home care systems, care-as-a-sensor, or smart facility management systems. This PhD will develop methods of conveying the complicated concepts related to privacy in an intuitive and understandable manner for common users of the IoT systems. The work will build on and complement the technical developments of the research in the Gemeni center for IoT. These are related to a certification process for privacy and technical aspects underlying the various privacy concepts that we study. The extraction of the privacy concepts is based on standards like GDPR (EU’s General Data Protection Regulations) or Privacy-by-Design guidelines.
