Throughout history, humans have endeavored to establish a form of individual identity. Of notable concern is our paper trail identification system we currently use today. Driver’s licenses, social security cards, passports, credit cards, username / password / pass phrase authentication, and even our birth certificate are all paper trail identity representations of us; the problem with a paper trail system is it can be seemingly absent or pilfered, knowingly or unknowingly replicated, and used fictitiously and of course, since it is our information, we are held accountable for its use, even if it is used without our knowledge. In the world of wired, wireless and open air communication technology, to prove oneself is derived from a username and password combination which at best provides minimal security and accessibility. If our society operated on a honesty trusted policy, and everyone involved played in congruence, security would be a moot point; however, given that there are a certain aspect of population that derives benefit from the bane of others, security measures have taken shape in an attempt to thwart unwanted infiltrators such as the Person in the Middle (PitM)  attacker / observer or some backdoor malware that records your information while you type. While the PitM attacker is not preventable at this venture of society, perhaps it will become moot with the addition of the digital me project and the e-Passport.
“Foursquare is a mobile application that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore. It is a friend-finder, a social city guide and a game that challenges users to experience new things, and rewards them for doing so. Foursquare lets users ”check in“ to a place when they‘re there, tell friends where they are and track the history of where they’ve been and who they‘ve been there with.”

Barbara - D’Lightful Karl - Doowangle Addisonbow Project Partners The Project – Copyright Learning ModuleIdea: Learning Module – Engineering Design & Copyright/Patent RelationshipsDevelop a Learning Design Studio of an online module about Engineering DesignIdeas/Contractual Work and the relationship with the Patent/Copyright process.
Goal: Outline, identify, and highlight up to date issues regarding intellectual property andcopyright/patents. In addition, host this as an online learning module in aVirtual World Environment like Second Life.Ideal: Develop a Holodeck or similar tool in Second Life to package a learning module topose situations to visitors and then provide information leading to a solution with focuson Patent/Copyright Laws.

How is My Identity Currently Defined?• Drivers License • Birth Certificate – License Number – Parents Information – Name – Birth Date – Address (Street, City, State, Zip Code) – Birth Location – Hair Color – Hand and Feet Prints – Eye Color – Picture – Height – Blood Sample – Weight • College ID – Organ Donor – Name of College• Social Security Card – Name – Work Eligibility Number – Year• Passports (E-Passport) • Genealogy – Paper Trail with RFID Tag – Heritage• Credit Cards • Medical EMR – Card Number • Gender – Name – Male – Security Feature Number (3 digit) – Female• User Name / Password / Pass Phrase – Transgender
Mobile Tracking Location-BasedServices Continue to Grow Foursquare alone has over 5,000,000 registered users Google latitude allows users to do micro-coordination
So why do we share? use location abstractions to scaffold privacy concerns share precise location (GPS) & share nothing max social benefits &no social benefits

‘Cyberstalking : Worse Than Personal Harassment
Cyberstalking takes many forms. Among them: • Installing spyware on a targets computer or via email • GPS surveillance of the movement of victims • Posting personal or false and humiliating information about the victim on the Internet • Sending harassing emails & msgs • Using social media such as Facebook or Twitter to post false and humiliating information
CyberstalkingIt’s not a Game Cyberstalking and cybercrimes are on the rise as more and more private information becomes easily accessible on the internet. Advances in technology have allowed stalking to go online, with perpetrators accessing personal information.
Bluesnarfing Prevention• Education and awareness are key.• Set Bluetooth to non-discovery mode.• MAC address filtering.• Encryption.• User-set passwords.• Download latest software version.• Be wary of strangers.
Individual Therapy Session PrivacyProviding Privacy for Online Consultations
Notecard Project Topic: An Investigation Of Privacy Within Virtual World Therapy SessionsOnline therapy is a type of psychological treatment where patients and mentalhealth professionals communicate and address mental issues. This type oftherapy has been utilized for conditions such as post traumatic stress disorder,depression, eating disorders, and chronic pain. It is particularly useful to patientswho want to be treated and want to remain anonymous or cannot attend in officeconsultations and visits.The project is a virtual world simulation that evaluates two types of onlinetherapy sessions: group therapy and individual therapy. Participants within thetherapy sessions interact via avatars. The goal of the simulation is to identifyand contrast participant web privacy and information accountability issuesduring these sessions.
