Abstract

Ubiquitous technologies will provide rich services to consumers and citizens. However, ubiquitous applications will raise serious privacy protection issues since ubiquitous devices will be embedded so pervasively everywhere and in countless objects and devices. Most notably there are some ubiquitous applications in which it is technically difficult to implement the self-information control required by law or privacy protection guidelines. Because there is no one perfect technological solution, it is necessary to investigate a full range of countermeasures in terms of legal remedies and security technologies through an interdisciplinary approach. In this paper, we investigate privacy protection issues for ubiquitous applications. We specifically try to clarify privacy protection issues surrounding RFID applications in terms of legal remedies and security technologies.
