Clearly Opaque: Privacy Risks of the Internet of Things is the Forum's new major report on the privacy challenges of connected devices and the emerging strategies to address them.
This in-depth, multidisciplinary research report explores issues of transparency, consent, identifiability, emotional and bodily privacy, and the destabilization of boundaries.

Based on workshops and interviews with 40 experts, practitioners and scholars, Clearly Opaque also provides frameworks and strategies to help companies and regulators address IoT privacy risk without harming innovation.
The report contains a comprehensive list of relevant standards, conferences and academic centers of excellence to help researchers and practitioners identify new partners and resources. Feedback is welcomed at [email protected]
Privacy and the Internet of Things: Emerging Frameworks for Policy and Design

A concise version of Clearly Opaque has been published by UC Berkeley’s Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity.  Entitled Privacy and the Internet of Things: Emerging Frameworks for Policy and Design, this 28-page companion gives a high-level view of IoT privacy risks, with design and governance recommendations to address them.

Gilad Rosner also wrote a June 2018 op-ed piece in The Hill based on the research in Clearly Opaque.
