Traditionally, pollution measurements are performed using expensive equipment at fixed locations or dedicated mobile equipment laboratories. This is a coarse-grained and expensive approach where the pollution measurements are few and far in-between. In this paper, we present a vehicular-based mobile approach for measuring fine-grained air quality in(More)
To support privacy-aware management of data in social spaces, the user personal data needs to be stored at each user device, and shared only with a trusted subset of other users. To date, social spaces only have fairly limited access control capabilities, that do not protect the possibly sensitive data of the users. In this demonstration, we showcase our(More)
We study the privacy threat by publishing data that contains full functional dependencies (FFDs). We show that the cross-attribute correlations by FFDs can bring potential vulnerability to privacy. Unfortunately, none of the existing anonymization principles can effectively prevent against the FFD-based privacy attack. In this paper, we formalize the(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t Data publishing has generated much concern on individual privacy. Recent work has shown that different background knowledge can bring various threats to the privacy of published data. In this paper, we study the privacy threat from the full functional dependency (FFD) that is used as part of adversary knowledge. We show(More)
The intent of peer data management systems (PDMS) is to share as much data as possible. However, in many applications leverag-ing sensitive data, users demand adequate mechanisms to restrict the access to authorized parties. In this paper, we study a distributed access control model, where data items are stored, queried and authenticated in a totally(More)
The Cloud-based infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) paradigm (e.g., Amazon EC2) enables a client who lacks computational resources to outsource her dataset and data mining tasks to the Cloud. However, as the Cloud may not be fully trusted, it raises serious concerns about the integrity of the mining results returned by the Cloud. To this end, in this paper,(More)
Spurred by developments such as cloud computing, there has been considerable recent interest in the data-mining-as-a-service paradigm. Users lacking in expertise or computational resources can outsource their data and mining needs to a third-party service provider (server). Out-sourcing, however, raises issues about result integrity: how can the data owner(More)
—The wireless data collected in mobile environments provides tremendous opportunities to build new applications in various domains such as Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks and mobile social networks. One of the biggest challenges is how to store these data. Storing the data decentralized in wireless devices is an attractive approach because of its major advantages(More)
