Peer-to-Peer Protocols and Data Protection in the European Union

Authors: Riemann, Robert

Abstract: Some Peer-to-Peer applications like Bitcoin, BitTorrent and others avoid authorities that introduce a single point of failure. Instead, the application users are equally powerful peers that interact directly with each other. After a short introduction of selected applications with focus on their ephemeral personal data processing, their benefits for the protection of users’ personal data and their conflicts with European data protection law are discussed.
