[rdfweb-dev] (draft) 'FOAF Privacy considerations' section for the
danbri at w3.org
Sun Jun 22 10:59:03 UTC 2003
http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/ now has has 'privacy' section. pretty sketchy,
The main goal was to cite http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-guide/#Privacy and
Edd's docs on PGP usage.
Textual excerpt follows:
FOAF is an RDF-based Semantic Web language and as such can be used in
applications that deal with data aggregation and privacy issues. W3C's
OWL Guide: Data Aggregation and Privacy notes on this topic are highly
relevant. Both users and developers should be aware that RDF data is easily
merged and aggregated, and that this creates potential for unexpected
data re-use and re-combination. There are techniques for PGP-encrypting
and PGP-signing FOAF data which can help users and applications keep
track of the authorship and readership of RDF/XML documents.
Of course this gets us into questions of 'intended audience' for the
namespace doc / spec., versus need for friendler user-guide stuff...
