Conference: in Proceedings of the 23rd IEEE International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (IEEE AINA-09), Bradford, UK, 26-29 May 2009.

Abstract: "On the Internet, nobody knows you are a dog" according to the famous Pat Steiner cartoon in The New Yorker, which has been very frequently cited in order to emphasize the potential for anonymity and privacy that the Internet was supposed to offer. However, the reality seems to be rather different. Among the several threats to personal privacy caused by the emerging Information and Communication Technologies,
activities related to passive network monitoring hold an outstanding position. This paper discusses from an access control point of view the issue
of privacy protection regarding data originating from passive network monitoring. It proposes a semantic information model, along with the nderlying enforcement framework, for the real-time determination of ccess control provisions as stem from the personal data protection legislation and  depending on the particular characteristics of every request for monitoring data disclosure.
