Abstract:Privacy is a prime concern in today's information society. To protect
the privacy of individuals, enterprises must follow certain privacy practices, while
collecting or processing personal data. In this chapter we look at the setting where an
enterprise collects private data on its website, processes it inside the enterprise and
shares it with partner enterprises. In particular, we analyse three different privacy
systems that can be used in the different stages of this lifecycle. One of them is the
Audit Logic, recently introduced, which can be used to keep data private when it
travels across enterprise boundaries. We conclude with an analysis of the features
and shortcomings of these systems.
