Abstract

The Internet of Things and its applications are becoming increasingly popular. Especially Smart Service Platforms like Alexa are in high demand. Such a platform retrieves data from sensors, processes them in a back-end, and controls actuators in accordance with the results. Thereby, all aspects of our everyday life can be managed. In this paper, we reveal the downsides of this technology by identifying its privacy threats based on a real-world application. Our studies show that current privacy systems do not tackle these issues adequately. Therefore, we introduce PSSST!, a user-friendly and comprehensive privacy system for Smart Service Platforms limiting the amount of disclosed private information while maximizing the quality of service at the same time.
