Data Smith Lab (DSL)

📖 Lab Handbook

We study the privacy and security of data systems by researching the people who design, implement, and use these systems.

The “overarching problem” that we want to solve is motivated by the statement from "Reflections on Trusting Trust".

To what extent should one trust a statement that [a program is free of Trojan horses?]
Perhaps it is more important to trust the people who wrote the software.

[...] can be replaced with many other statements relevant to privacy and security.

Major ideas we are pursuing:

  • Modular APIs for Access Control
  • Privacy Embeddings
  • Architectural Support for Privacy by Design
  • Procedural Trustworthiness
