W3C Privacy Initiatives after P3P
As a follow up to P3P, W3C did several workshops. A first workshop on improvements to P3P has let to the development of P3P 1.1 that was stopped because of fading industry support. A second workshop on long term goals was done and made clear that more research is needed.
W3C participated in several research projects to get some idea on what to do in this area in the future:
- EU IST FP5 RAPID, a roadmap for privacy
- PAW - Policy Aware Web
- TAMI - Transparent Accountable Datamining Initiative
- PRIME - Privacy and Identity management
W3C created the Policy Languages Interest Group (PLING) to address the combination of policy languages and the interoperability challenges this represents.
