Mobile Systems

Members in RTCL mobile privacy research group, led by Prof. Kang G. Shin, are engaged in a series of interesting topics regarding emerging privacy issues on the mobile platforms. With hundreds of millions of deployed mobile handsets powered by the ever-evolving mobile apps market, personal information is more likely to be shared, either intentionally or unconsciously. The richness of personal information, while bringing personalized services to the end-users, also raises serious privacy concerns. The major focus of the mobile privacy research group is to investigate and understand these emerging issues and achieve a balance between benefits and risks, if possible, with the support of either technologies or policies.
