Abstract

This paper aims at defining a set of privacy metrics (quantitative and qualitative) in the case of the relation between a privacy protector ,and an information gatherer .The aims with such metrics are : -to allow to assess and compare different user scenarios and their differences ;for examples of scenarios see [4]; -to define a notion of privacy boundary, and design it to encompass the set of information , behaviours , actions and processes which the privacy protector can accept to expose to an information gathering under an agreement with said party ; everything outside the boundary is not acceptable and justifies not entering into the agreement ; -to characterize the contribution of privacy enhancing technologies (PET). A full case is given with the qualitative and quantitative privacy metrics determination and envelope, i.e. a Cisco Inc. privacy agreement.
