There can be little doubt that privacy emerges as one of the central problems of our times particularly so in the countries of the Western world. In some primitive cultures the opportunities for escaping almost continuous surveillance are very limited, but such is the resilience of human nature that the people in such societies seems able to adjust to this situation and not to be disturbed by it. The role of privacy in ancient civilizations aside, there is a long history of the esteem for the reality of privacy, even though the term itself may not have been used, in the religious traditions of both East and West, where withdrawal from the world into solitude has consistently been viewed as the most efficacious route to union with the Divine. With increasing attention to, and recognition of, human dignity in Western society in recent centuries and particularly in recent years, there ahs come a parallel emphasis on human rights, and central to the cluster of human rights is the right to privacy. It is doubtful whether individual privacy has ever been more highly esteemed than it is today in the democracies of the Western world.

In a time in which new technologies make it easy to gather and process data, the discussion on privacy tends to focus exclusively on the protecting of personal data. To Serge Gutwirth, privacy involves far more. He advances the intriguing thesis that privacy is in fact the safeguard of personal freedom the safeguard of the individual's freedom to decide who she or he is, what she or he does, and who knows about it. Any restriction on privacy thus means an infringement of personal freedom. And it's exactly this freedom that plays an essential role in every democracy."

Privacy, Security and Trust within the Context of Pervasive Computing is an edited volume based on a post workshop at the second international conference on Pervasive Computing. The workshop was held April18-23, 2004, in Vienna, Austria. The goal of the workshop was not to focus on specific, even novel mechanisms, but rather on the interfaces between mechanisms in different technical and social problem spaces. An investigation of the interfaces between the notions of context, privacy, security and trust will result in a deeper understanding to the "atomic" problems, leading to more complete understanding of the social and technical issues in pervasive computing. Privacy, Security and Trust within the Context of Pervasive Computing is designed for a professional audience composed of practitioners and researchers in industry. This volume is suitable for graduate-level students in computer science as well.

Privacy is the capacity to negotiate social relationships by controlling access topersonal information. As laws, policies, and technological design increasingly structure people'srelationships with social institutions, individual privacy faces new threats and newopportunities. Over the last several years, the realm of technology and privacyhas been transformed, creating a landscape that is both dangerous and encouraging. Significantchanges include large increases in communications bandwidths; the widespread adoption of computernetworking and public-key cryptography; mathematical innovations that promise a vast family ofprotocols for protecting identity in complex transactions; new digital media that support a widerange of social relationships; a new generation of technologically sophisticated privacy activists;a massive body of practical experience in the development and application of data-protection laws;and the rapid globalization of manufacturing, culture, and policy making. Theessays in this book provide a new conceptual framework for the analysis and debate of privacy policyand for the design and development of information systems. The authors are international experts inthe technical, economic, and political aspects of privacy; the book's strength is its synthesis ofthe three. The book provides equally strong analyses of privacy issues in the United States, Canada,and Europe. Contributors: Philip E. Agre, Victoria Bellotti, Colin J. Bennett,Herbert Burkert, Simon G. Davies, David H. Flaherty, Robert Gellman, Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, DavidJ. Phillips, Rohan Samarajiva.
