Communication Privacy

Communication Privacy

The protection of informational privacy has been a core challenge of our digital society for many years now. The aspect of communication privacy deals with privacy threats related to (meta) data leakage and profiling.

SPIN investigates communication privacy beyond dissident protection, Facebook, and Tor. Instead, we focus challenges related to group communication (publish/subscribe) to protected privacy and corporate secrecy in scenarios such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Homes, and group messaging.
