Linked Data enables people to access other users’ data stored
in several places, distributed across the Web. Current Linked
Data mechanisms mostly provide an open environment where
all data is freely accessible, which could discourage some
people to provide sensitive data in the Linking Open Data
(LOD) cloud. Although the existing Web Access Control
(WAC) vocabulary restricts RDF documents to specified
users, it does not provide fine-grained privacy measures which
specify complex restrictions to access the data. In this paper, we propose a lightweight vocabulary — on top of WAC
— called the Privacy Preference Ontology (PPO) that enables users to create fine-grained privacy preferences for their
data. The vocabulary is designed to restrict any resource to
certain attributes which a requester must satisfy.
