On Crossroads of Privacy Protection

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10726)


The privacy protection has recently become a hot topic because of the increase in cyber-crime (using personal data for mounting attacks) as well as legal obligations for parties controlling personal data (eg. GDPR regulation of European Union). This creates a big market for pragmatic technical solutions.

In this paper we discuss a few general issues related to these problems, focused on current challenges and the necessity of paradigm shifting in the construction of IT systems, which should be secure-by-design in a demonstrable way.
