Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. said Oct. 22 that it has developed new technology that protects the privacy of sensor data, such as data from intelligent home appliances and location data.
Protection of such data has become increasingly vital due to an increase in data leaks and other breaches of privacy.
These technologies consist of partial decryption technology that takes encrypted sensor data and masks a portion of it, replaces the user ID to an anonymous ID, or converts the encryption key, while maintaining encryption; and anonymous access technology by which users, without divulging their ID to the utilization service, are able to receive their own analytic results from the utilization service.
Fujitsu will present the new technology at the Computer Security Symposium 2012, which will be held at Kunibiki Messe (Shimane Prefectural Convention Center) from Oct. 30-Nov. 1.
The convention is sponsored by the Computer Security Group of the Information Processing Society of Japan.
