OverviewThis introductory lecture to privacy will provide a broad overview of the state-of-the-art in privacy technologies, explain the main issues that these technologies address, what the current solutions are able to achieve, and the remaining open problems. Some of the questions that we will answer in this talk include: what are the different meanings of "privacy"? how does "privacy" translate to technical properties and how do these relate to classical security properties? what are the problems of the current legal-policy approach to addressing privacy problems? which are the available state-of-the-art privacy protection technologies?
