Privacy Preserving Schemes for Mobile and Wearable Devices

Wearable devices have become popular in various applications such as healthcare, security and entertaining. It is predicted more than 250 million devices will be sold, with an income generated to reach $2 billion by 2018. The nature and form-factor of wearable devices make them ideal technologies to collect a wide range of information and data, such as geographical location, living habits, body temperature, heart rate and conversation continuously, ubiquitously and discreetly, without their awareness or consent. For example patients connections facilitated by wireless monitoring will reach 4.9 million by 2016. The simplicity of use and comfort in accessing online content comes however at the expense of possible privacy and security issues because of a lack of effective and complete controls to protect privacy and security.

The MPhil stage will focus upon critiquing and analysing the current literature and understanding a current state-of-the-art for privacy, privacy preserving technologies, wearable devices and mobile devices in the contexts of both information gathering about the user and privacy perspective. The project will build upon the previous work undertaken in this area by evaluating and analysing the privacy problem and available solutions. This work will be extend to establish, through experimentation, the feasibility of built an interface for users to understand and control the nature of information.
