Abstract

The Internet of Things will bring a whole set of new applications into our everyday life. Many of these applications include collecting, storing, and processing of possibly sensitive personal information. Therefore, using context-adaptive applications comes up not only with virtues but also with risks, especially in terms of privacy. In this bachelor thesis a framework for building context-adaptive systems in ubiquitous computing environments which maximize the benefits for the user while decreasing possible risks is presented. It is based on the analysis of three existing applications (ContextContacts, WhozThat, and SocialFusion), which draws on established principles, such as Langheinrichs six principle approach for ensuring Privacy by Design A central database that stores personal profiles (often referred to as a Personal Data Store) builds the core element of this framework. Three data sources (mobile sensors, social networks, and static sensor networks) supply this central database with personal information. The framework provides the user with full control over his personal profile at any time. This includes the possibility to view, alter, and delete information as well as changing applications access rights. The power of the consumers combined with a competent and trustworthy central database provider will not only ensure highest possible security and privacy for its users. Due to the extent of stored information it will also provide various applications with richer contextual information in order to unobtrusively offer added value in peoples everyday life.
