Building privacy infrastructure for culturally sensitive information of New Zealand Maori
Deng, Xianglin; Foukia, Noria; Savarimuthu, Bastin Tony Roy
This paper proposes to design a mechanism that will allow Maori users to specify their privacy preferences related to their culture when a software system asks for culturally sensitive information. We first identify various concepts associated with sensitive aspects of Maori culture, such as tapu. We propose to build an ontology that describes these concepts and the relations between them in a formal way. This ontology will help service providers integrate Maori cultural protocols in order to make Maori users more confident about the use of the sensitive information related to their culture.
