By using personal information in a pervasive computing environment, context-aware applications can provide appropriate services for people. This personal information is often involved in personal privacy. In order to protect personal privacy concerns about personal information, privacy role is proposed to control access personal information. We also construct an information system about the privacy decision of personal information disclosure based on people's interaction history. In the initial period of personal information disclosure, the privacy decision is made by people and the information system is constructed based on the decision data. Then privacy disclosure policies are extracted from this information system using rough set theory. According to deducing from the privacy disclosure policies and people's context information, the context-aware application is assigned to an adequate privacy role. It reduces the distraction of privacy decision for people. A case study further shows the proposed method is effective. Finally, it provides about the overload performance of privacy role analysis engine.
