Abstract

Pervasive logging devices capture everything along with the public nearby without their consent, thus, possibly troubling people who prefer their privacy. This has issues for privacy and, furthermore, the widespread use of such logging devices may affect people's behavior, as they may feel uncomfortable that they are constantly being monitored. People may wish to have some control over the lifelogging devices of others and, in this article, we describe a framework to restrict anonymous logging, unless explicitly permitted. Our privacy framework allows the user of a logging device to define privacy policies controlling when, where and who to restrict from logging them. Moreover, it is possible to select which type of logging sensors to apply these restrictions. Evaluation results show that this approach is a practical method of configuring privacy settings and restricting pervasive devices from logging.
