Abstract [en]

While the mobile Internet makes available location-based as well as other useful services to the mobile users, risks to the users privacy have to be taken into consideration as well. Personal user data, such as traffic data, location data, device and user specific capability and preference information, and content data is exposed at different sites, such as the WAP Gateway/Proxy or the Origin Servers sites. In this paper, we first define privacy and basic privacy requirements and analyze privacy risks in the mobile Internet environment. We especially investigate those generated by the use of device and user specific profiles. Furthermore, we discuss technical means for enhancing privacy. Particularly, we show how the Platform for Privacy Preferences Project (P3P) protocol can be used to enforce the users control over the release of location data and capability and preference information, and how it can be enhanced.
