Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors describe their approach on protecting user privacy in smart environments, particularly smart homes, which they call eHomes. These are environments with devices such as sensors, computational units, actors, which are seamlessly integrated in the environment, and objects they use in their everyday life. In order to provide more convenience to its users such environments can be personalized. As these environments become ubiquitous, thus supporting mobility of the users, new privacy threats arise. These are based on the digital traces and personal information which is left while visiting different environments.
