Urban Sensing through Social Networks: The Tension between Participation and Privacy

By Ioannis Krontiris and Felix C. Freiling


Abstract In this paper we elaborate on using social networking mechanisms to create incentives that increase active participation of users in the process of collecting data for urban sensing campaigns and involve them in the process of sharing and processing the data. This results in a tension between the resulted social translucence and our efforts to offer anonymous submission of reports from mobile phones. We investigate specifically three research challenges: the identification of users at the network layer, the revocation of misbehaving anonymous users and the accumulation of reputation based on user’s contributions.
