PriGuard (Privacy Guard)

Summary

Privacy Guard (PriGuard) is an intelligent software that can keep track of users’ privacy requirements, check if these requirements can be met by the system, and lead the user to take appropriate action as needed. A prototype of PriGuard can be downloaded from here. Note that Java >= 1.7 is needed to run the program. An online social network ontology is developed and can also be downloaded from here. A demonstration can be found below.

PriGuard Scenarios

Relationships between the OSN users

Here we demonstrate three examples using PriGuard:

1. charlie wants his friends to see the people that he is together with but not his colleagues. However, linus is both a friend and a colleague.
2. linus wants his friends to see his media but doesn’t want non-friends to see it.
3. charlie wants his friends to see his media but not his location. He posts pictures but not his location.
