Integrated Userware for the Intelligent, Intuitive, and Trust-Enhancing Management of the User’s Personal Information Sphere in Digital and Social Environments

A new generation of distributed social networks is promising to give back users full control over their personal information as shared in private and business life. However, there are many aspects to this control, such as information ownership, access to third parties and limited persistence. This paper compares various existing solutions against an analytically elaborated list of user requirements. Based on this comparison, we also present a comprehensive and integrated approach to overcome the major issues outlined for the existing solutions, including first experiences of applying the reference implementation.
