IoT systems in smart homes present several privacy challenges. Building on our previous work, the workshop will aim to foster community discussion and collaboration among a multidisciplinary group of experts and early-career researchers in a design workshop. Through the creative design workshop, we aim to deepen understanding of the security, privacy, identity and trust issues with four use cases namely i) smart health, ii) smart appliances, iii) smart toys and iv) home security. The workshop will aim to build on previous creative approaches, and the findings from the workshop will provide a valuable insight to both further research and industrial implementation.
The one-day online workshop will foster community discussion and collaboration among a multidisciplinary group of experts and early-career researchers in a design workshop on the following topics:
● How to ensure end-user engagement for dynamic and on-demand creation of data sharing policies in smart homes.
● How to tackle users’ lack of knowledge of security and privacy and their experience with managing their devices.
● How to avoid privacy fatigue while ensuring appropriate levels of user agency.
● How to manage shared ownership and control of objects.
● How to ensure regulatory compliance.
● How regulation on consumer IoT products and data protection can support technical and design standards that are genuinely privacy-friendly to and usable by end-users.
