OpenPrivacy is an open source, distributed, cryptographically secure platform for sharing anonymous demographic profiles. The project aims to allow users to reap the available benefits of sharing their profile information, while protecting consumer's privacy using anonymous submissions. The platform manages Reputations, which are XML Digital Signature based objects that securely store personal profile information. Reputation Servers are agents that respond to requests pertaining to reputations. Trust capabilities of the system include complete disassociation of submitted information from the user's identity and an open system available for public inspection and auditing. One project implementing OpenPrivacy is JetsPeek, an XML-based enterprise information portal developed as part of the Java Apache Project (which is in the process of merging with the Jakarta Project).
