Security and Privacy Group

The amount of data gathered on human beings is growing exponentially. Data are often seen as an asset of the firm without regard of the person behind them. The advent of "Internet of Things" intensifies the problem even more. Our group develops and promotes the use of privacy-enhancing technologies.

We are active in various projects where data need special attention, for instance in medicine, where researchers work with a lot of information that must be particularly protected, or on the Web, where plenty of data is generated by users that can be used to generate recommendations for users concerning activities they probably will like.
