Personal Data Vaults: A Locus of Control for Personal Data Streams

This paper was written by Min Mun, Shuai Hao, Nilesh Mishra, Katie Shilton, Jeff Burke, Deborah Estrin, Mark Hansen and Ramesh Govindan of the Center for Embedded Networked Sensing, University of California, Los Angeles. It lays out a privacy architecture in which individuals retain ownership of their data, referred to as Personal Data Vaults. Instead of individuals sharing their personal data streams directly with services, the authors propose "the use of secure containers to which only the individual has complete access."
