Abstract

The privacy of personal information on the Internet has become a major concern for governments, businesses, media, and the public. Platform for Privacy Preferences (P3P), developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), is the most significant effort underway to enable web users to gain more control over their private information. P3P provides mechanisms for a web site to encode its data-collection and data-use practices in a standard XML format, known as a P3P policy [3], which can be programmatically checked against a user’s privacy preferences.
