Privacy Control for User-Managed Access

This post is about my recent work at Newcastle University as contributor on the Smart project. The study explores visualization techniques to enhance privacy control user experience for User-Managed Access (UMA) protocol, applied to SmartAM system.
The goal is to mitigate risks of lost of privacy and the exploitation of online personal data caused from user difficulty to maintain control, correlate web resources and assign privileges for specific scope in the data sharing process.
The approach (see slideshare presentation below) introduces the concepts of Connection, Control bridge and visualization tools for this purpose.
