Terms for App Versions

The Northeastern University App Versions data sharing agreement is inspired by a similar one from CAIDA (www.caida.org). This is a basic policy to which you must agree before we give you access to any part of our dataset.

  • 1) The traces we provide are anonymized to the best of our ability, and no subjects other than our research team were involved in the data-collection process.
  • 2) The traces are provided to you, and you only. You may not reshare without permission.
  • 3) You will make no attempts to reverse engineer, decrypt, or otherwise identify any personal information in these traces.
  • 4) If you publish a document (including web pages and papers) that uses data from this dataset, you must provide us with a copy of the publication and must cite:
    Jingjing Ren, Martina Lindorfer, Daniel Dubois, Ashwin Rao, David Choffnes, Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez. Bug Fixes, Improvements, ... and Privacy Leaks - A Longitudinal Study of PII Leaks Across Android App Versions. To appear in Proceedings of Network and Distributed System Security Symposium (NDSS'18), February, 2018.
