PriMan: Facilitating the Development of Secure and Privacy-Preserving Applications

Abstract : Security and privacy are essential in today’s information-driven society. However, security technologies and privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) are often difficult to integrate in applications due to their inherent complexity and steep learning curve. In this paper, we present a flexible, technology agnostic development framework that facilitates the integration of security and privacy-preserving technologies into applications. Technology-specific configuration details are shifted from the application code to configuration policies. These policies are configured by domain experts independently from the application’s source code. We developed a prototype in Java, called PriMan, which runs on both desktops and Android based devices. Our experimental evaluation demonstrates that PriMan introduces a low and acceptable overhead (e.g., less than one millisecond per operation). In addition, we compare PriMan with other, freely available solutions. PriMan facilitates the integration of PETs and security technologies in current and future applications.
