Abstract: Opaque communications between groups of data processors leave individuals out of touch with the circulation and use of their personal information. Empowering subjects in this regard requires supplying them with clear data handling guarantees. We introduce an inference model providing individuals with global accountability guarantees which take into account trust assumptions and varying levels of usage evidence. Our model is implemented in the IDP knowledge base system and demonstrated with the scenario of a surveillance infrastructure used by a railroad company. We show that it is flexible enough to be adapted to any use case involving communicating stakeholders for which a trust hierarchy is defined. Via auditors acting for them, individuals can obtain global accountability guarantees, providing them with a trust-dependent synthesis of declared
and proven data handling practices.
