E-squads : a novel paradigm to build privacy-preserving ubiquitous applications

Abstract : The emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT) has proved to be dangerous for the people's right to privacy: more and more connected appliances are sharing personal data about people's daily lives to private parties beyond their control. Still, we believe that the IoT could just as well become a guardian of our privacy, would it escape the centralised cloud model. In this thesis, we explore a novel concept, the e-squad: to make one's connected devices collaborate through gossip communication to build new privacy-preserving services. We show how an e-squad can privately build knowledge about their user and leverage this information to create predictive applications. We demonstrate that collaboration helps to overcome the end-devices' poor availability and performance. Finally, we federate e-squads to build a robust anonymous file exchange service, proving their potential beyond the single-user scenario. We hope this manuscript inspires the advent of more humane and delightful technology.
