Today's world of universal data exchange, there is a need to manage the risk of unintended information disclosure. Publishing the data about the individuals, without revealing sensitive information about them is an important problem. Kanonymization is the popular approach used for data publishing. The limitations of K- anonymity were overcome by methods like L-diversity, T-closeness, (alpha, K) anonymity; but all of these methods focus on universal approach that exerts the same amount of privacy preservation for all persons against linking attack, which result in high loss of information. Privacy was also not guaranteed 100% because of proximity and divergence attack.
