Various parties are increasingly interested in collecting information about users and their activities in many facets of life. Some wish to provide customized services and applications to better meet the needs of end-users. Others argue that the collected information helps them to improve security. Yet often the means by which such information is collected does not give much consideration to the privacy of individuals. Thus, privacy has become a central issue made all the more important by the deployment and adoption of new technologies such as electronic communications, social networking, cloud computing, surveillance systems, and healthcare systems, etc. The legal implications and ethical issues, as they relate to privacy, are also important aspects that are being explored by researchers, legal experts, and policymakers around the world. This book presents state-of-the-art solutions that are being explored, deployed, and adopted on pertinent privacy issues relating to a range of emerging technologies.
