Can you trust your content based retrieval system?
Andreas Uhl, 09:15-10:30, Session Chair: Harald Kosch
Content-based media processing is not a domain well known for its high security-awareness. We will discuss questions related to security and privacy in such systems. On the one hand, content-based retrieval systems can be deceived by fraudulent manipulated queries, on the other hand data privacy is threatened especially in distributed search and retrieval setups. We will discuss eventual solutions as proposed in the context of biometric systems and will check for their generalisability to other content-based processing application areas.
