PrivacyLens is a User Consent Mechanism that gives users fine grained control of what information is sent from an Identity Provider (IDP) to a Service Provider.

PrivacyLens derives from, and augments the capabilities of uApprove. PrivacyLens is installed by embedding it into an existing installation of the Shibboleth Identity Provider.

To better communicate to users what attributes will be shared by the identity provider with a service provider, PrivacyLens presents users with human-readable information without jargon. PrivacyLens shows the user only the information is necessary to understand the interaction, but provides additional detail if requested by the user.

PrivacyLens allows users to select what attributes will be shared on a per-attribute basis, except for attributes that are required for the functionality of the service.

PrivacyLens also gives users more control by providing an interface to audit previous visits and define which attributes will be sent to service providers on subsequent visits.
