Some of Internet services require users to provide their sensitive information such as credit card number, and an ID-password pair. In these services, the manner in which the provided information is used is solely determined by the service providers. As a result, even when the manner in which information is used by a service provider appears vulnerable, users have no choice but to allow such usage. In this paper, we propose a framework that enables users to select the manner in which their sensitive information is protected. In our framework, a policy, which defines the type of information protection, is offered as a Security as a Service. According to the policy, users can incorporate the type of information protection into a program. By allowing a service provider to use their sensitive information through this program, users can protect their sensitive information according to the manner chosen by them.
