- PrivySeal Store: A Privacy-Focused Store for Cloud Apps [More][video]
Every time you need to use a new app that connects to your Google Drive, Dropbox, or other services, you are presented with a permissions dialog. These dialogs typically say what the app wants to access but not what the app can actually do with the data it accesses. Furthermore, the dialogs do not differentiate between what the app actually needs and what extra permissions it requires. In reality, this difference can sometimes become tricky, and an input from an expert can enable users to make better informed decisions. PrivySeal Store tackles these two issues and presents a new way to browse apps that connect to your cloud services. It focuses on visualizing the possibilities that modern data analysis tools open with these extra permissions.

GSN is a software middleware designed to facilitate the deployment and programming of sensor networks. It is written in Java and runs on one or more computers composing the backbone of the acquisition network. tinyGSN is a scaled-down version of GSN, which will open the door to radically new applications not possible with current server-based setup.
