In this paper, the authors argue that the space of personal data is a dataspace as defined by the researchers. They define a personal dataspace, as the space of all personal data belonging to a user, and they describe the logical components of the dataspace. They describe a Personal Dataspace Support Platform (PDSP) as a set of services to provide a unified view over the user's data, and to enable new and more complex work flows over it. They show the differences from a DSSP (DataSpace Support Platform) to a PDSP, and how the latter can be realized using Web protocols and linked APIs (Application Programming Interfaces).
