Privacy is a major issue today as more and more users are connecting and participating in the Internet. This paper discusses privacy issues associated with web metering schemes and explores the dilemma of convincing interested parties of the merits of web metering results with sufficient detail, and still preserving users’ privacy. We analyse different categories of web metering schemes using an established privacy guideline and show how web metering can conflict with privacy. We propose a web metering scheme utilising user-centric hardware to provide web metering evidence in an enhanced privacy-preserving manner.
