The objective of the DMSP project is to design and experiment a secure and portable social and medical folder. The demo will use tokens (manufactured by Inria) et Android tablets.
Cities, IoT and Analytics
The Smart City concept is based on the collection, sharing and analysis of data that is either about citizens or produced by them, the benefits cannot be achieved without addressing the evident privacy questions that arise. The current Web model which is fully centralised is not appropriate for managing such data as it raises potential privacy abuse and misuse issues. Within the Citylab@Inria initiative, we argue that personal citizens' data should be managed under the control of the data owner. Towards this goal, many startups currently investigate Personal Cloud solutions, which can be thought of as a secure dedicated box belonging to the individual (kept at home or remotely) and in charge of organizing her personal data space in a database style (see OpenPDS, CozyCloud, OwnCloud...). The specificity of our approach is to rely on a secure database machine to enforce the privacy rules and establish a Secure Personal Cloud. A Secure Personal Cloud can then be designed so as to ease personal data management and allow data computation and disssemination with strong privacy guarantees and protection against abusive use and loss.
Skype is a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) solution used by hundreds of millions of people the world over. Inria researchers (Stevens Le Blond, Arnaud Legout and Walid Dabbous) in partnership with a team at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University have demonstrated that a malicious user could invade the privacy of any Skype user.

Billions of people surf the web. Surprisingly enough, almost everyone uses a uniquely customized browser. These small differences are tantamount to a distinct digital fingerprint that can be surreptitiously collected by a new breed of inquisitive programs, spurring privacy concerns. A scientist at Inria research center in Rennes, Brittany, France, Benoît Baudry holds that software diversity is also at the crux of the solution against such prying tools.
AccLab is a framework which helps to write abstract accountability obligations and to check for consistency and compliance of the policies. This framework is interconnected with an accountability monitoring system called AccMon which provides means to monitor accountability policies in the context of a real system. The policies are based on a distributed temporal logic and the framework allows centralized or distributed monitoring and both on-line and off-line controls.
Today, the web is evolving at an amazing pace with a richer, more personal and more interactive user experience. Nevertheless, modern browser technologies, which provide the beauty and power of the web, also provide a darker side, a rich ecosystem of exploitable data that can be used to build unique browser fingerprints. With AmIUnique, we aim at discovering the diversity of devices connected to the web through fingerprinting to design smart defenses against unwanted online tracking.
A real-time collaborative peer-to-peer editor.
Existing collaborative systems generally rely on a service provider that stores and has control over user data which is a threat for privacy. MUTE is an online real-time collaborative editor that overcomes this limitation by using a peer-to-peer architecture relying on WebRTC. Several users may edit in real-time a shared document and their modifications are immediately sent to the other users without transiting through a central server. Data synchronisation is achieved by using the LogootSplit algorithm developed by team Coast.
