Description: The advent of Smart Cities is one of the greatest challenges and field of opportunities in the goal to achieve sustainable, comfortable, and socially responsible living environments. A large number of factors, spanning from government/administration/citizen interaction models, heterogeneous communication network, interoperability, or security determine the capabilities and functionalities that can be deployed. In this chapter, different factors in the implementation and adoption of E-Government within Smart City scenarios are described. The authors include the Interoperability Principle as a part of the Open Government concept and link this concept with the Smart Cities view. Then, they describe a new model of public organization that they call “Intelligent,” characterized by the “Smart Government,” and they propose a matrix with the elements of this model. Then, the authors analyze the technical and infrastructure dimensions of the matrix.

Description: The use of the new information and communication technologies (ICT) has led to significant changes in the daily development of the information society. Although most of those changes tend to improve our lives, ICT can endanger some of our fundamental rights. In this article, we describe the threats related to the identity of ICT users, and we summarize the countermeasures that can be applied in three especially important areas: Internet search engines, vehicular networks, and location-based services.

Description: The massive use of mobile devices equipped with self-location technologies such as GPS has fostered the appearance of an unprecedented number of location-based services (LBS) that are gaining importance rapidly. The location-based applications that these new technologies can bring to people are almost unlimited and their advantages paramount, however, the wide deployment of LBS can jeopardise the privacy of their users and raise social concern. Consequently, ensuring user privacy is essential to the success of those services. This report surveys some of the most relevant techniques, which can be found in the literature, to guarantee the location privacy of LBS users. These techniques are classified according to their ability to operate with or without trusted third parties (TTP), and according to their ability to protect the privacy of users by distorting their real locations or by keeping them untouched.
