2013 Proceedings of the 2013 ACM SIGSAC conference on Computer & communications security - CCS '13  
In this paper we study geo-indistinguishability, a formal notion of privacy for location-based systems that protects the user's exact location, while allowing approximate information - typically needed  ...  Furthermore, we present a perturbation technique for achieving geo-indistinguishability by adding controlled random noise to the user's location.  ...  GEO-INDISTINGUISHABILITY In this section, we define geo-indistinguishability, a formal definition of privacy which expresses a user's expected privacy requirement when using a location-based system.  ...

Optimal Geo-Indistinguishable Mechanisms for Location Privacy

Nicolás E. Bordenabe, Konstantinos Chatzikokolakis, Catuscia Palamidessi
2014 Proceedings of the 2014 ACM SIGSAC Conference on Computer and Communications Security - CCS '14  
We consider the geo-indistinguishability approach to location privacy, and the trade-off with respect to utility.  ...  This reduces considerably the time required to solve the linear program, thus enlarging significantly the location sets for which the optimal mechanisms can be computed.  ...  Geo-indistinguishability In the context of location based systems the secrets X are locations, and we can obtain a useful notion of location privacy by naturally using the Euclidean distance d2, scaled  ...

Nearby Friend Discovery with Geo-indistinguishability to Stalkers

Changsha Ma, Chang Wen Chen
2014 Procedia Computer Science  
The main privacy threat of this service is that the disclosure of locations leaves opportunities for stalkers.  ...  Nearby friend discovery is a popular location based service (LBS), which allows you to discover nearby like-minded people, and make friends with them.  ...  Geo-Indistinguishability Geo-indistinguishability is a variation of differential privacy proposed to provide a formal location privacy protection for the LBS users.  ...

Preserving Geo-Indistinguishability of the Emergency Scene to Predict Ambulance Response Time

Héber H. Arcolezi, Selene Cerna, Christophe Guyeux, Jean-François Couchot
2021 Mathematical and Computational Applications  
In this paper, geo-indistinguishability was applied to sanitize each emergency location data, which is a state-of-the-art formal notion based on differential privacy.  ...  However, one well-known predictor of ART is the location of the emergency (e.g., if it is urban or rural areas), which is sensitive data because it can reveal who received care and for which reason.  ...  Geo-Indistinguishability Differential privacy [16] has been accepted as the de facto standard for data privacy.  ...
