Data Management by Privacy Preserving in the Anonymous Database Using Suppression and Generalization Protocols
Today there is an increased concern for privacy. The availability of huge numbers of databases recording a large variety of information about individuals makes it possible to discover information about specific individuals by simply correlating all the available databases. Although confidentiality and privacy are often used as synonyms, they are different concepts: data confidentiality is about the difficulty by an unauthorized user to learn anything about data stored in the database. Usually, confidentiality is achieved by enforcing an access policy, or possibly by using some cryptographic tools. Privacy relates sensitive information regarding the legitimate owner.
