Local Differential Privacy Preserving in Social Networks

Online social networks often contain sensitive information about individuals. Therefore, de-anonymizing the graph before releasing becomes an important issue. We define the notion of group based local differential privacy. In particular, by resolving the network into 1-neighborhood graphs and applying HRG-based methods, local differential privacy reduces the noise scale. By grouping the HRGs’ output spaces with overlap together and sampling an outstanding HRG, we perturbed the subgraphs in a group to be extremely similar to enhance the privacy power beyond differential privacy..

Our annual information security symposium will take place on April 3rd and 4th, 2018.
