Practical privacy-aware opportunistic networking

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Opportunistic networks have been the study of much research — in particular on making end-to-end routing efficient. Users’ privacy concerns, however, have not been the subject of much research. What privacy concerns might opportunistic
network users have? Is it possible to build opportunistic networks that can mitigate users’ privacy concerns while maintaining routing performance?
Our work-to-date has tackled the problem of creating privacy-preserving routing protocols, with less emphasis on discovering users’ actual privacy concerns. We summarise our current results, and describe a future experiment that we have planned to better understand users’ privacy concerns.
