With E.U. cash


Big Blue
has started a three-year project to infuse privacy controls into identity technologies and emerging social networking sites.

The work is being undertaken by IBM Research, with funding help from the European Union, with the idea of creating  technology to ensure users can protect their privacy online for their entire lifetime. The project, called PrimeLife (Privacy and Identity Management in Europe for Life), is a three-year research project funded by the European Union's Seventh Research Framework Programme.

IBM Research wants to create a "toolbox" that amounts to an electronic data manager that gives users an overview of which personal data they use when, where, and how.

Users would be able to define default privacy settings and preferences and would receive prompts of applications seek data for any other purpose.
