Personalized services are a key feature for the success of the next generation Web that is accessed by heterogeneous and mobile cclient deviceslient devices. The need to provide high performance and to preserve user data privacy opens a novel dimension in the design of infrastructures and request dispatching algorithms to support personalized services for the Mobile Web. Performance issues are typically addressed by distributed architectures consisting of multiple nodes. Personalized services that are often based on sensitive user information may introduce constraints on the service location when the nodes of the distributed architecture do not provide the same level of security. In this paper, we propose an infrastructure and related dispatching algorithms that aim to combine performance and privacy requirements. The proposed scheme may efficiently support personalized services for the Mobile Web especially if compared with existing solutions that separately address performance and privacy issues. Our proposal guarantees that up to the 97% of the requests accessing sensitive user information are assigned to the most secure nodes with limited penalty consequences on the response time.
