The DataBox is a means of enhancing accountability and giving individuals control over the use of their personal data. The Databox envisions an open-source personal networked device, augmented by cloud-hosted services, that collates, curates, and mediates access to an individual’s personal data by verified and audited third party applications and services.
The Databox will form the heart of an individual’s personal data processing ecosystem, providing a platform for managing secure access to data and enabling authorised third parties to provide the owner with authenticated services, including services that may be accessed while roaming outside the home environment.
The project will run for 3 years and started in October 2016. Please see the homepage at databoxproject.uk.
