  • Project title: Optimal Mechanisms for Privacy Protection

  • Funded by: DigiCosme

  • Duration: September 2016 - August 2019

  • Coordinator: Catuscia Palamidessi, Inria Saclay, EPI Comète

  • Other PI's: Serge Haddadm ENS Cachan.

  • Abstract: In this project we plan to investigate classes of utility and privacy measures, and to devise methods to obtain optimal mechanisms with respect to the trade-off between utility and privacy. In order to represent the probabilistic knowledge of the adversary and of the user, and the fact that mechanisms themselves can be randomized, we will consider a probabilistic setting. We will focus, in particular, on measures that are expressible as linear functions of the probabilities.
