Étiquette : privacy by design (page 1 of 2)

“In principle, the concept of a « Corona App » involves an enormous risk due to the contact and health data that may be collected. At the same time, there is a chance for « privacy-by-design » concepts and technologies that have been developed by the crypto and privacy community over the last decades. With the help of these technologies, it is possible to unfold the epidemilogical potential of contact tracing without creating a privacy disaster. For this reason alone, all concepts that violate or even endanger privacy must be strictly rejected. In the following, we outline social and technical minimum requirements for such technologies. The CCC sees itself in an advisory and observation role in this debate. We will not recommend specific apps, concepts or procedures. We however advise against the use of apps that do not meet these requirements.”

“When we use data to create better experiences for you, we work hard to do it in a way that doesn’t compromise your privacy. One example is our pioneering use of Differential Privacy, where we scramble your data and combine it with the data of millions of others. So we see general patterns, rather than specifics that could be traced back to you. These patterns help us identify things like the most popular emoji, the best QuickType suggestions, and energy consumption rates in Safari.”

“Under the new law, all new internet-connected devices made or sold in California with a default password will be required to make that password unique and secure for every single device. That means no more devices shipped with username/password combos of “admin/admin,” for example. It’s far from a panacea—and really, why aren’t you using a password manager already—but it’s a step towards at least a minimal baseline of security in our internet-of-things addled future.”

“We’re also going to change the way we handle the clearing of auth cookies. In the current version of Chrome, we keep the Google auth cookies to allow you to stay signed in after cookies are cleared. We will change this behavior that so all cookies are deleted and you will be signed out”.

“Le blocage des publicités popup dans la version originale de Firefox était un bon choix en 2004, parce qu’il améliorait le confort des utilisateurs et donnait aux plates-formes publicitaires de l’époque une raison de se soucier de l’expérience délivrée. En 2018, nous espérons que nos efforts pour donner plus de contrôle aux utilisateurs auront le même effet”.

“An idle Android device communicates with Google nearly 10 times more frequently as an Apple device communicates with Apple servers. These results highlighted the fact that Android and Chrome platforms are critical vehicles for Google’s data collection.  Again, these experiments were done on stationary phones with no user interactions. If you actually use your phone the information collection increases with Google”.
“In fact, location information constituted 35 percent of all the data samples sent to Google”.

Facebook - Reconnaissance faciale

«L’alternative au mot ‘accepter’ n’est pas ‘refuser’ mais ‘gérer les paramètres de données’. Ce n’est qu’après deux clics que l’on peut cocher ‘ne pas autoriser Facebook à me reconnaître sur des photos ou des vidéos’».

«Criteo, la firme française de publicité ciblée, perdait à Wall Street près de 28 % de sa valeur à la mi-séance. L’entreprise, déjà affaiblie au début de l’automne, se voit de nouveau pénalisée par les marchés, mais encore plus lourdement qu’auparavant. Wall Street a sanctionné son chiffre d’affaires prévisionnel : ce dernier serait écorné de 22 % l’an prochain. Un résultat, selon la firme, d’une baisse des revenus publicitaires sur mobile, principalement à cause de iOS 11 et la décision d’Apple de réguler».
