Title

Privately Updating Suppression and Generalization based k-Anonymous Databases

Abstract

Alice, owner of a k-anonymous database, needs to determine whether her database, when inserted with a tuple owned by Bob, is still k-anonymous. Suppose that Bob is not allowed to access to the database because of data confidentiality and that Alice is not allowed to read Bob's tuple due to Bob's privacy concern. Under these assumptions, this paper proposes two protocols to check whether the database inserted with a tuple is still k-anonymous, without letting Alice and Bob know the contents of the tuple and the database respectively
