IEEE Pervasive Computing


September 2017


We present a roadmap for privacy research in ubiquitous and pervasive computing for the next decade, highlighting some key challenges and opportunities for addressing privacy concerns. We organize our work using two different lenses. The first looks at privacy from the perspective of devices, characterizing privacy based on different tiers of devices. The second examines privacy from the perspective of different entities involved with privacy, mapping out an ecosystem for privacy. We advance the argument that, today, too much of the burden of privacy is on end-users, and to achieve a sustainable ecosystem we need to develop new ways of shifting this burden to other entities, such as developers, service providers, governments, and third parties.
