Privacy and Security in mobile social networks
Di Mobspace (del 09/10/2009 @ 07:37:26, in 4.Mobile Web2.0, linkato 1406 volte)
Sono stato recentemente invitato a presentare il mio lavoro ad un interessante workshop su un tema di grande interesse, ovvero "privacy & security in online social networks". Il mio lavoro sui mobile social networks aggiungerà, a detta dell'organizzatrice Seda Guerses, un contributo di grande rilevanza su un tema su cui conosciamo ancora troppo poco, ma che sta diventando sempre di più una parte del discorso più generale sul significato di Internet nella vita quotidiana.

Diffondo quindi con piacere l'invito a partecipare a questo workshop, che anche nel formato (fish-bowl) si presenta molto innovativo.

Call for Participation

Please join us on November 5, 2009 to discus future privacy and security challenges in online social networks.

Online Social Networks have become an important part of daily digital interactions for more than half a billion users around the world. The various personal information sharing practices that online social network providers promote have led to their success as innovative social interaction platforms. At the same time, these practices have raised much critique and concerns with respect to privacy and security from different stakeholders. Addressing these privacy and security concerns in online social networks results in research challenges, but what exactly are those challenges? What problems exist? Which existing security and privacy tools can be applied to address existing concerns? Which tools need to be developed in the future? Are existing legal frameworks able to address raised concerns? Where do they fail to meet the needs of the social networking communities and those who do not participate in them? What social practices lead to some of the existing problems and which ones exist or can be promoted to develop community privacy and security practices? How can we develop holistic perspectives and endeavor multi-disciplinary studies on privacy and security in social networks that can transcend techno, legal or human centric approaches?

The objective of this one day workshop is to bring together representatives from the industry as well as researchers and practitioners from law, computer science, social sciences working in the field of social networks together with an interested audience. We will discuss what current privacy and security concerns are, envision future social networks in which these concerns can be addressed, and explore what research challenges exist or may arise from those visions.

Ronald Leenes, our keynote speaker will open the day, followed by interactive sessions together with Anders Albrechtslund, Bettina Berendt, Joseph Bonneau, Dave Clarke, Claudia Diaz, Gloria González Fuster, Koen Gorissen, Eva Lievens, Giuseppe Lugano, Frank Piessens, and Cedric De Vleeschauwer.

This workshop is organized by the COSIC Privacy and Identity Management Group (ESAT, K.U. Leuven) in collaboration with the groups HMDB, DISTRINET and ICRI at K.U. Leuven and Netlog, Belgium.

SNSs pose a plethora of privacy issues that are reasonably well understood (see ENISA study, art 29 wp report etc). These studies contain all sorts of recommendations, but most prominently call for raising awareness of the SNS users as well as implementing security measures. This advice is not very helpful because it underestimates the innate social aspects of SNSs and how these platforms meet the social needs of their users. In order to be more effective we need to understand the social dynamics of social networks. I will briefly discuss why teens have no choice but to be on SNSs and on SNSs, data disclosure is the norm. Next I will focus on a couple of approaches to reconcile privacy and sociability in SNS. I will discuss two kinds of attackers in more detail: snoopers (parents, teachers, employers) and platform providers who harvest the data as part of their business model, and discuss remedies for their attacks.
