MATERIALIST: A Web Platform for Guiding Privacy Design Pattern Selection in Software Development

, , , ,

As software production evolves, privacy is becoming an increasingly important consideration. This is especially true as national and supranational regulations, such as GDPR, require privacy as a mandatory aspect of software development. However, challenges such as a lack of knowledge about privacy and data protection regulations by developers hinder the adoption of effective privacy implementation mechanisms. To address this issue, this paper presents MATERIALIST, a Web platform designed to assist developers in using proper privacy design patterns during software development. The main focus is to suggest privacy design patterns starting from GDPR requirements, code vulnerabilities, or software lifecycle phases, providing a practical solution that developers can apply in their work. MATERIALIST aims to facilitate the adoption of appropriate privacy implementation mechanisms in the software development lifecycle, thereby improving software quality.
