On efficient and robust anonymization for privacy protection on massive streaming categorical information

Zhang, Ji and Li, Hongzhou and Liu, Xuemei and Luo, Yonglong and Chen, Fulong and Wang, Hua and Chang, Liang (2017) On efficient and robust anonymization for privacy protection on massive streaming categorical information. IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing, 14 (5). pp. 507-520. ISSN 1545-5971


Protecting users’ privacy when transmitting a large amount of data over the Internet is becoming increasingly important
nowadays. In this paper, we focus on the streaming categorical information and propose a novel anonymization technique for providing a strong privacy protection to safeguard against privacy disclosure and information tampering. Our technique utilizes an innovative two-phase anonymization approach which is very easy to implement, highly efficient in terms of speed and communication
and is robust against possible tampering fromadversaries. Extensive experimental evaluation that is conducted demonstrates that our technique is very efficient andmore robust than the existingmethod.
