Title: Privacy models and disclosure risk: integral privacy

Abstract: The literature offers a set of privacy models which can be used to specify what kind of inference are we interested to avoid. Reidentification, k-anonymity and differential privacy are well known examples of these privacy models. Most of them can be classified according to the two dimensions: attribute and identity disclosure.
In this talk we will give an overview of the privacy models and describe some of our work on evaluating the worst-case scenario for some masking methods, and discuss the privacy model of integral privacy.
