Pay by Data – Application Marketplace with Explicit Data Usage Agreement

Big Data, 2013 IEEE International Conference (2013)

Personal data collection is becoming pervasive these days, these data has the risk of being abused by current application and application marketplace model, because only the price of application is explicitly indicated without clear agreement on usage of data, and the granularity of data access authentication is not enough to protect users privacy. In this short paper, we propose a new model of user data privacy. Data usage of the application is explicitly shown, and controlled by an authentication service, to protect users from the abuse of their data, especially in mobile application.
