The Minimum Exposure is a collaboration started in 2011 between several research teams (INRIA-Rocquencourt, University of Versailles St-Quentin, Ecole Polytechnique, Athens University of Economics and Business) and is supported by the Conseil Général des Yvelines. It is funded by grants DIGITEO Learning Techniques for Large and Evolving Networks (LeTeVoNe), ANR Définir, Evaluer et Modéliser les Technologies de l’Information de Santé (DEMOTIS), INRIA Collaborative Action on the Protection of Privacy in the Information Society (CAPPRIS) and ANR Keeping your Information Safe and Secure (KISS).
One of the outputs of this project was a prototype implemented on smart-card allowing the minimization of data exchanged in form base interactions.
Our prototype tackles the implementation of a founding privacy principle : Limited Data Collection, which can be stated as follows: the set of personal data required during a given process must be strictly limited to the minimum necessary to achieve the purpose of this process.
