Seminar abstract

Privately Answer Count-Queries on Periodical Datasets

Gang Li
senior lecturer
Deakin University

Abstract: Most privacy-preserving studies focus on static dataset releases or queries. However, in practice, people usually release these datasets periodically. Differential privacy provides a possible way to deal with continual releases by simplifying the continual dataset release to a bit stream release. This method does not consider the coupling between events and records. In fact, the coupled information might reveal more private information than expected. This work proposes a privacy-preserving mechanism that explicitly deals with the coupled information in the periodically generated datasets. It decomposes the coupled information into intra-coupled information and inter-coupled information, and proposes the notion of coupled sensitivity. A mechanism, CCR, is developed for privately answering a large set of count query. The initial performance outperforms the naive differential privacy mechanism when answering a large set of queries.
