Privacy has always been a controversial topic. Governments and business want to collect information about their citizens and customers - for their own benefit as well their clients. In surveys, people claim that they value their privacy. In practice, people give away personal information very easily, either because they do not receive a service otherwise, or because they are unable to protect that information reliably. With the calls for ever increasing security - after the events of the last few years - privacy has eroded even further, it seems.

In this seminar we will explore the state of the art in privacy enhancing technologies (PET), and discuss theories (technical, legal and societal) of privacy.
