Abstract

Trajectory datasets are becoming,popular,due,to the massive,usage,of GPS and,location- based services. In this paper, we address privacy issues regarding the identification of individuals in static trajectory datasets. We first adopt the notion of k-anonymity,to trajectories and propose,a novel generalization-based approach,for anonymization,of trajectories. We further show,that releasing anonymized,trajectories may,still have,some,privacy,leaks. Therefore we propose,a randomization based,reconstruction,algorithm,for releasing anonymized,trajectory data and,also present how,the underlying,techniques,can be adapted,to other anonymity,standards. The experimental,results on real and,synthetic trajectory datasets show,the effectiveness of the proposed,techniques.
