Abstract

With the growing spate of privacy laws worldwide, managing privacy has become very important. However, even in countries with well-established and understood privacy laws, there are currently no established technological solutions that meet the challenging requirements expressed by privacy regulations. Variants of XML have been created or extended in an attempt to express privacy rights. The question remains: how can a citizen’s privacy rights be managed or enforced? This paper describes extensions to a privacy architecture that employs digital rights management to manage individual data privacy. Several scenarios related to the management of personally identifiable information are described, illustrating how the system operates in support of the requirements expressed in the privacy principles.
