  • Overview

  • Study an important privacy preserving method, namely k-anonymity

  • Show it is provably hard, even to find a good enough approximate answer

  • Develop three algorithms with different tradeoffs between the approximation ratio and complexity

  • Introduction

  • Motivation is privacy preserving

    • Publish sensitive data to allow accurate analysis without revealing the privacy

  • Simply removing the id column is not enough

    • Attackers can use some other attributions, called quasi-identifiers, to restore the identities

  • Generalization is necessarily

    • The quasi-identifiers are replaced by values in more general forms

  • K-anonymity is often a requirement

    • Make the quasi-identifiers of each tuple undistinguishable with at least those of other (k-1) tuples

  • Approximation Algorithms

  • The Divide-and-Group (DAG) Algorithm

  • Divide the space into square cells with proper size

  • Find a set of non-overlapping tiles of 2 x 2 cells to cover the points, such that each tile covers at least k points

  • Assign the rest of (uncovered) points to the nearest tile

  • Problem Mapping

  • Given a table R containing d quasi-identifier attributes

  • Map each quasi-identifier attribute to one dimension

  • Map each tuple in the table to a point in d-dimensional space

  • Map the k-anonymous generalization problem to a partition problem

    • Partition a set of d-dimensional points into some groups

    • Each point belongs to one and only one group

    • Each group contains at least k points

    • Each point is generalized to the minimum bounding rectangle (MBR) of its group

  • Quality Measuring

  • The smaller the MBRs are, the more accurate the analysis results are.

  • The size of each MBR is measured by its perimeter.

  • Objective

    • Find the optimal partition that minimizes the maximum size (perimeter) among all MBRs.

  • The Min-MBR-Group (MMG) Algorithm

  • For each point p, find the smallest MBR which covers at least k points including p

  • Find a set of non-overlapping MBRs from the result of previous step

  • Assign the points to the nearest MBR

  • The Nearest-MBR-Group (NNG) Algorithm

  • For each point p, find the MBR which covers p and its k-1 nearest neighbors

  • Find a set of non-overlapping MBRs from the result of previous step

  • Assign the points to the nearest MBR

  • Hardness of the Problem

  • Finding the optimal partition is NP-hard (cannot be done within polynomial time).

  • Finding a partition with approximation ratio less than 5/4, i.e. the maximum perimeter is 5/4 of the maximum perimeter of the optimal partition, is also NP-hard.
