Deliverable 4.3 Security and privacy extensions for the big and fast data eco-system

EUBra-BIGSEA aims at covering general requirements of multiple application areas, although it will showcase in the treatment of massive connected society information, and particularly in traffic recommendation.

This document reports on the extensions developed for the integrated Big and Fast data eco-system to cope with security and data privacy concerns. The integrated fast and Big Data eco-system represents the central component devoted to data management aspects (i.e., access, analytics/mining, and quality) of the EUBra-BIGSEA platform. Developers and end-users will exploit it to execute data analytics and mining operations over different types of data sources. These data can contain sensitive or personal information that can identify individuals. Additionally, data source owners can define policies for the usage of certain information that must be enforced. In either way, data privacy and anonymity techniques are required to guarantee that the data policies are respected while using and processing the data within the Big Data ecosystem technologies. Besides data privacy, the data platform should also ensure that access to the technologies and the data is provided only to authorized users. In this regard, a common authorization/authentication mechanisms is exploited by the services and technologies involved in the ecosystem.
