About this item

Technology’s influence on privacy has become a matter of everyday concern for millions of people, from software architects designing new products to political leaders and consumer groups. This book explores the issue from the perspective of technology itself: how privacy-protective features can become a core part of product functionality, rather than added on late in the development process.

The Architecture of Privacy will not only help empower software engineers, but also show policymakers, academics, and advocates that, through an arsenal of technical tools, engineers can form the building blocks of nuanced policies that maximize privacy protection and utility—a menu of what to demand in new technology.

Topics include:

  • How technology and privacy policy interact and influence one another
  • Privacy concerns about government and corporate data collection practices
  • Approaches to federated systems as a component of privacy-protecting architecture
  • Alternative approaches to compartmentalized access to data
  • Methods to limit the amount of data revealed in searches, sidestepping all-or-nothing choices
  • Techniques for data purging and responsible data retention
  • Keeping and analyzing audit logs as part of a program of comprehensive system oversight
  • Security architecture that includes separation of roles and minimum access to data, while avoiding a single point of trust
  • Forecast of likely developments, and recommendations on how to address or alter them
