Abstract: While the usage of Mobile Services creation and Distribution Management Systems (MSDMS) increases dramatically during the web 2.0 era nowadays, it unavoidably leads to collection and processing of personal data with many complains from the consumer/user side (see e.g., Facebook problems). To address these problems, we define privacy-related requirements to support designing privacy-friendly mobile services distribution management schemes, especially in the case of collaborative mobile services. Furthermore, we propose a privacy-enhancing MSDMS model, integrating anonymous transactions and other privacy-friendly operation-related components. The proposed architecture makes possible a high degree of interactivity and guarantees low load on the server.

Keywords: mobile services management; privacy protection; PETs; privacy-enhancing technologies; anonymous transactions; electronic security; collaborative m-services.
