I had the pleasure to give a talk today on web privacy and P3P at Ecole des Mines de Nantes in the ASCOLA research team by kind invitation of Mario Südholt. The hidden agenda was to promote our empirical research on P3P but we also agreed upfront to attempt a more general discussion of web privacy. So you find little empirical stuff in the early parts of the slide deck.
Title: More of a discussion on web privacy
Abstract: The presentation begins with observations about the current state of web privacy on the internet today. The presentation continues to set up some challenges for web privacy to be addressed in practice, subject to contributions by CS research. The technical core of the presentation is a language engineer's approach to understanding W3C's P3P language for privacy policies of web-based systems. Discussion during and after the talk is strongly appreciated.
