Handbook of Privacy and Privacy-Enhancing Technologies

About the Handbook

The handbook was established within the PISA (Privacy Incorporated Software Agent) project supported by the European Union (project RTD IST-2000-26038). This handbook presents the results of the joint study by the Dutch Data Protection Authority, TNO, Delft University of Technology, Sentient Machine Research, FINSA Consulting, National Research Council of Canada and GlobalSign, as partners in the PISA project. With this study the partners have attempted to identify possible threats to the privacy of individuals resulting from the use of agent technology. Secondly, the study sought to identify and demonstrate ways of applying Privacy-Enhancing Technologies (PET) to agent technology in such a way as to eliminate the impact of these threats.
