Personal data privacy and security is a concern for users and legislators alike. The use of data in social networking and applications that aggregate often personal data in a variety of contexts is expanding. Users need tools and application frameworks to enable the monitoring and control of their personal data in these distributed computing environments. The TAS3 project is developing such a framework around the concept of a trust framework backed up by a network of policy management points. The framework ensures users can see how their data is being shared and used and enables them to set appropriate policies on specific data objects.
