Chapter 18

Data Privacy and Privacy-Preserving Data Publishing

Abstract

This chapter discusses “the other side of the coin” to data mining—which is not often dealt with in data mining books—namely, data privacy and privacy-preserving data publishing. The chapter first considers how some popular Internet applications deal with data privacy, followed by a brief look at some of the legal aspects. Then it looks at “privacy-preserving data publishing,” which is perhaps the area of most concern for data miners: concepts, anonymization techniques, and document sanitization.
