Problem Statement

The Personalized Privacy Assistant (PPA) project addresses the growing concern over privacy in the Internet of Things (IoT) environment by developing an application that alerts users to the presence and data collection practices of nearby IoT devices, enabling informed privacy decisions and assisting users in exercising control over data collection

Literature Study

Design and Implementation

Our overall architecture comprises of three components as mentioned below.

Beacons and IoT sensors setup

Beacons serve to enhance context-awareness by determining whether an entity is within range.

Mobile application for sensor discovery

The application periodically scans for beacon signals using the beacon UUID. When a beacon is detected, the application triggers a notification.

Server to manage IoT infrastructure
