While cryptography classically aims to provide confidentiality for messages during their transmission between a sender and a recipient, privacy is a broader, more subtle, and sometimes less technical issue.

Daniel Augot with other groups from Inria (Comete, SMIS) started discussions with lawyers and economists, fostered by IDEX Paris-Saclay's Institut de la société du numérique, to understand the privacy concerns of ordinary citizens. On a more technical side, privacy can be protected with cryptographic protocols other than encryption. In this direction, Grace is engaged since April 2013 in a collaboration with Alcatel–Lucent on private data storage and retrieval in the cloud.
