Personal Information Controller Service (PICS)


This paper presents a view at glance of the project PICS (which stands for Personal Information Controller Service) that is concerned by personal data protection. More specifically we present a software platform that allows users to control the exchanges between Web-based Personal Information Management Systems (the so-called PIMS that store users’ personal data) and SaaS services (such as e-commerce applications) using a reinforced authentication. The ultimate goal of this platform is to empower users by allowing them to have full control on personal data exchange. Moreover, the platform includes specific components to help users to solve cognitive demanding tasks related to the data protection such as how to properly interpret Terms of Service (ToS) imposed by the SaaS, recall previous users interactions with the SaaS (ex. personal data exchanged with the SaaS and the corresponding term of services), and detect unauthorized use of personal data. The technical solution proposed by PICS is a suitable implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We present the motivations, challenges and research questions that lead to the technical solution proposed by PICS.
