While ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft are hailed as a boon for millions of riders worldwide, they are also heavily criticized for their vast collection of data on customers; data which allows them, at least in theory, to follow their customers’ every move. A team of cryptography researchers at the Swiss Federal Polytechnic Institute in Lausanne and Lausanne University, have now developed a prototype software, called ORide. They claim this will allow people to participate in ride-sharing but without sharing their location data. In a paper presented at the 2017 USENIX Security Symposium in Vancouver, BC, Canada, the…
