The Privacy coach is an application running on a mobile phone that supports customers in making privacy decisions when confronted with RFID tags. The approach the authors take to increase customer privacy is a radical departure from the mainstream research efforts that focus on implementing privacy enhancing technologies on the RFID tags themselves. Instead the privacy coach functions as a mediator between customer privacy preferences and corporate privacy policies, trying to find a match between the two, and informing the user of the outcome. In this paper they report on the architecture of the privacy coach, and show how it enables users to make informed privacy decisions in a user-friendly manner.
