A Privacy-Preserving Pay-by-Phone Parking System
MetadataShow full item record
Most cities around the world require drivers to pay for the time they occupy a parking spot. In this way, drivers are encouraged to shorten parking time so that other drivers are given a reasonable chance of finding parking. The traditional way, based on moving to a pay station and placing the issued parking ticket on the dashboard of the car, presents several drawbacks like having to predict in advance the duration of parking or the need to move to the car in case the parking time has to be extended. Over the last few years, several applications permitting to pay through the mobile phone have appeared. Such applications manage detailed information about parking operations so that accurate profiles of parking habits of car owners can be created. In this paper we propose a system to pay for parking by phone which preserves the privacy of drivers in the sense that the information managed by the system is proven not to help an attacker with full access to it to do better that she would do by patrolling the city for collecting information about parked cars.
