“Sensing Web is a conceptual framework to shares sensors openly in wide-area network by maintaining privacy. Sensing Web targets large data such as image data or voice data, which may include privacy information. In this paper, we propose an architecture named SW-agent to realize the idea of Sensing Web. SW-agent protects privacy information by elimination of privacy information and appropriate access control. The elimination is done with data processing by a remote execution program shipped to a node near a sensor. We found that an SW-agent can execute a remote execution program with up to 7% overhead in performance compared to its direct execution.”
