A survey on privacy preserving data mining

A survey on privacy preserving data mining The field of privacy pursues rapid advances in recent years because of the increases in the ability to store data. One of the most important topics in research community is Privacy preserving data mining(PPDM). Privacy preserving data mining has become increasingly popular because it allows sharing of privacy sensitive data for analysis purposes. People today have become well aware of the privacy intrusions of their sensitive data and are very reluctant to share their information. The major area of concern is that non-sensitive data even may deliver sensitive information, including personal information, facts or patterns. This paper provides a wide survey of different privacy preserving datamining algorithms and analyses the representative techniques for privacy preserving data mining, and points out their merits and demerits.
