Internet services with built-in privacy protection

Whenever someone is using the Internet, they must entrust their data to a single service provider. This poses a risk, as many service providers are located outside the EU and there have been a lot of incidents where either governments, attackers (external or internal), or human errors leaked user data. The EU has taken measures to prevent further attacks of this kind, mainly by enforcing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which obligates companies to properly protect their users' data. The EU-funded project PSOTI will provide additional protection by applying not only legal, but also technical measures when processing sensitive user data. Concretely, a framework will be developed that allows users to choose among multiple service providers. The selected service providers then jointly process the users’ data so that it remains protected.
