Privacy-Preserving Protocols for Smart Camera Systems and Other IoT Devices

Thursday, June 23, 2022 - 5:25 pm5:40 pm

Smart camera systems are used by millions of consumers to monitor their homes and businesses. However, the architecture and design of current commercial systems require users to relinquish control over their data to untrusted third parties, without users' knowledge or explicit consent---thereby violating users' privacy.

In this talk, we will present how we designed a privacy-preserving smart camera system that returns controls of the system to users while still enabling popular features found in commercial systems. We will then show in the second part of the talk how our techniques and protocols can also be extended to other IoT devices recording real time data and time series such as; temperature, humidity level, heartbeat monitoring, etc.
