The aim of this thesis is to provide an overview about the feasibility of the Personal Data Store and the Attribute-based Encryption technologies in context with a Data Exchange Platform.
Both technologies have achieved a pleasing degree of maturity today, but applications that implement them are rare. For this reason, we will use both approaches in parallel to implement a Data Exchange Platform with respect to conventional privacy and security aspects.
This thesis first examines the case of a Data Exchange Platform and then turns to relevant Big Data technologies that research brought in the past. As mentioned, two of these approaches will be investigated closer and implemented in parallel to provide a framework that can be used to compare them.
The resulting application is used to draw a practical conclusion as to which of either approach is more feasible for our purpose. In addition, it will also identify that today’s solutions for the use of a Data Exchange Platform do not sufficiently use emerging technologies to ensure a fair privacy situation for their user.
