Summary : Our right to privacy is under attack
today. Actually, no one denies our right to privacy. However, in
reality, this right is being eroded more and more as every minute
passes. Some of this has to do with the war on terror, but much of it
simply has to do with the fact that our online actions can and are being
recorded in minute detail. In this presentation we describe some
concrete dangers that arise out of this situation and show that the
uncomfortable feeling we have when our privacy is compromised is the
least of our problems. We also show that a full understanding of these
concrete dangers is crucial for coming up with adequate
privacy-preserving solutions.
