Abstract [en]

On the Internet today, users are accustomed to disclosing personal information when accessing a new service. When a user does so, there is rarely a system in place which allows the user to monitor how his or her information is actually shared or used by services. One proposed solution to this problem is to have services perform transparency logging on behalf of users, informing them how their data is processed as processing is taking place.

We have recently participated in a collaboration to develop a privacy-preserving secure logging scheme that can be used for the purpose of transparency logging. As part of that collaboration we created a proof of concept implementation. In this thesis, we elaborate on that implementation and integrate it with a minimalistic open source issue-tracking system. We evaluate the amount of work required to integrate the logging system and attempt to identify potential integration problems. Using this issue-tracking system we then design and implement a scenario that demonstrates the value of the logging system to the average user.
