Abstract:Exchanging personal information for access to a service has become an integral part of everyday life. Surprisingly often, we do not even realize that this exchange is taking place. When accepting the terms of service agreement of a company, it is often unclear what is happening to (personal) data. Unknowingly, users had out blank cheques to companies, allowing them to control and resell the their data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which became enforceable in May 2018, is a first step towards putting users back in control of their personal data. With these new regulations, the existing solutions for consent management are not feasible any more for a data marketplace as well as for most consent scenarios. Utilizing the Design Science Research (DSR) methodology, this master thesis aims to create a prototype of a consent management system on the Ethereum Blockchain. With this prototype, we envision a data marketplace scenario which enables users to control their data.
