Abstract: Traffic monitoring is necessary for the operation, maintenance and control of communication networks. Traffic monitoring has also important implications on the user privacy. This paper discusses a novel approach to rivacy-preserving traffic monitoring and the related research challenges. This study is based on the analysis of the technical implications and regulatory provisions in the areas of data protection and security. We propose a two-tier privacy-preserving monitoring architecture characterized by i) the adaptation and operation of monitoring applications on protected data, and ii) a back-end middleware system devised to control and orchestrate the access to and processing of the collected data. The
feasibility of the proposed architecture faces many challenges. However, by carefully designing data protection mechanisms, by adapting  monitoring applications, and by deploying a semantic-rich privacy-aware access control framework, it is possible to concurrently meet strong privacy requirements, achieve efficient solutions for traffic monitoring, and be compliant with the recent regulatory provisions such as data retention.
