2015 (English)In: Proc. ACM Conference on Data and Application Security and Privacy (ACM CODASPY), ACM Digital Library, 2015, 151-153 p.Conference paper, Poster (Refereed)
Third-party identity management services enable cross-site information sharing, making Web access seamless but also raise significant privacy implications for the users. Using a combination of manual analysis of identified third-party identity management relationships and targeted case studies we capture how the protocol usage and third-party selection is changing, profile what information is requested to be shared (and actions to be performed) between websites, and identify privacy issues and practical problems that occur when using multiple accounts (associated with these services). The study highlights differences in the privacy leakage risks associated with different classes of websites, and shows that the use of multiple third-party websites, in many cases, can cause the user to lose (at least) partial control over which information is shared/posted on their behalf.
