In this paper, we propose an architecture to enable service providers personalise services in a pervasive environment, while minimising risks to users' privacy. We describe the design of two critical parts of such systems: a mechanism forr defining authenticated personas that can be pseudonymous; and mechanisms for users to share such personas with service providers. A trust-based approach supports decisions about accepting personas. We describe a prototype implementation and performance evaluations.
