2007 (English)In: New Approaches for Security, Privacy and Trust in Complex Environments, Springer, 2007, 325-336 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Privacy in computerized environments is perceived very differently depending on the respective point of view. Often "privacy enhancing technologies" - initiated by the user, as a measure of self-defense - are seen as conflicting with business goals such as cost-efficiency, revenue assurance, and options for further business development based on existing data. This paper presents the design and implementation of an architecture and prototype for privacy-friendly, interoperable location-based services (LBS), based on intermediation of location data via a location middleware component. The aim is to combine privacy-friendliness, efficiency, and market potential. Therefore the security interests of the stakeholders are analyzed and an architecture solution including an intermediary is introduced. Then the prototype implementation (at a mobile operator) is described and the usage of the prototype for a commercial service and product offer by the operator involved in the development is discussed.
