Although the European General Data Protection Regulation affords data subjects more control over how their
personal data is stored and processed, there is a need for technical solutions to support these legal rights.
In this position paper we assess the level of control, transparency and compliance offered by three different
approaches (i.e., defacto standard, SPECIAL, Solid). We propose a layered decentralised architecture based on
combining SPECIAL and Solid. Finally, we introduce our usage control framework, which we use to compare
and contrast the level of control and compliance offered by the four different approaches.
