Tutorial : Privacy-Enhancing Technologies for the Internet
by : Yves Deswarte
While, in our society, privacy is recognized as one of the fundamental human rights, citizens and consumers feel that new technologies endangers their privacy, and this feeling is an obstacle to the development of the information society. This tutorial will present some Privacy-Enhancing
Technologies (or PETs) that can contribute to improve user confidence in the Internet services. Among these technologies, the following ones will be detailed : virtual identity management, anonymous communications
and accesses, privacy-preserving authorization schemes, and personal data management.
