First International Workshop on Privacy by Design


To be held in conjunction with the Sixth International
Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security ARES 2011

August 22 - 26, 2011
Vienna University of Technology
Vienna, Austria

While data privacy was in the past mainly assured through procedures,
laws or static access control policies, these protection mechanisms tend
to be ineffective once data is ubiquitously available, outsourced to
partially untrusted servers or processed by third parties. In addition,
most current approaches towards achieving privacy - such as anonymisation
and aggregation - are either incompatible with the increasing complexity
of data usage or easy to compromise due to advances in statistical analysis
and availability of side-information. Recent research tries to provide
technical solutions in order to minimize the exposure of sensitive data
while still allowing data-driven business models. For example, cryptographic
schemes such as Secure Multiparty Computation, data-centric protection
schemes such as Enterprise Rights Management or trusted virtualization
technologies may be used to make IT systems intrinsically privacy friendly,
finally contributing to the vision of "privacy by design". The aim of the
workshop is to bring together researchers, systems engineers and privacy
professionals in order to drive the concept of Privacy by Design and discuss
implementation aspects as well as the surrounding legal and economic issues.

The main topics of interest comprise but are not limited to:

- design issues of privacy-enhanced systems
- cryptographic approaches for privacy
- practical aspects of Secure Multiparty Computation
- data centric security
- Information/Enterprise Rights Management
- privacy-enhanced system architectures
- privacy and biometrics
- privacy in the cloud
- Privacy Enhancing Technologies
- censorship resistance
- economic and legal aspects of privacy
- usability of Privacy Enhancing Technologies
