A Three-Dimensional Conceptual Framework for Database Privacy

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Database privacy is an ambiguous concept, whose meaning is usually context-dependent. The authors give a conceptual framework for technologies in that field in terms of three dimensions, depending on whose privacy is considered: respondent privacy (to avoid re-identification of patients or other individuals to whom the database records refer); owner privacy (to ensure that the owner must not give away his dataset); and user privacy (to preserve the privacy of queries submitted by a data user).
