Theme: Security and Privacy

Funding Agency: Microsoft SEIF 75K
Period: 2011 - 2012

Microsoft Research SEIF Awards supports the OU team to develop software engineering methodology and tools for usable mobile privacy management. The project delivered a tool-supported argumentation language to express and reason about dynamic and personal privacy requirements of mobile users. The software engineering framework provided a synchronous support for the traceability between privacy requirements and mobile code to control the disclosure of information to the right people under meaningful contexts. A simulation of varying awareness settings of persona’s helps software engineers to gain a better understanding of privacy requirements in the social settings.
