A posteriori disclosure risk measure for tabular data based on conditional entropy.

Statistical database protection, also known as Statistical Disclosure Control (SDC), is a part of information security which tries to prevent published statistical information (tables, individual records) from disclosing the contribution of specific respondents. This paper deals with the assessment of the disclosure risk associated to the release of tabular data. So-called sensitivity rules are currently being used to measure the disclosure risk for tables. This rules operate on an a priori basis:...

Privacy homomorphisms for statistical confidentiality.

Josep Domingo i Ferrer — 1996


When publishing contingency tables which contain official statistics, a need to preserve statistical confidentiality arises. Statistical disclosure of individual units must be prevented. There is a wide choice of techniques to achieve this anonymization: cell supression, cell perturbation, etc. In this paper, we tackle the problem of using anonymized data to compute exact statistics; our approach is based on privacy homomorphisms, which are encryption transformations such that the decryption of...

A comparative study of microaggregation methods.

Microaggregation is a statistical disclosure control technique for microdata. Raw microdata (i.e. individual records) are grouped into small aggregates prior to publication. Each aggregate should contain at least k records to prevent disclosure of individual information. Fixed-size microaggregation consists of taking fixed-size microaggregates (size k). Data-oriented microaggregation (with variable group size) was introduced recently. Regardless of the group size, microaggregations on a multidimensional...
