<div>Association rule mining is a well-known data mining technique used for extracting hidden correlations between data items in large databases. In the majority of the situations, data mining results contain sensitive information about individuals and publishing such data will violate individual secrecy. The challenge of association rule mining is to preserve the confidentiality of sensitive rules when releasing the database to external parties. The association rule hiding technique conceals

The main purpose of this approach is to conceal the sensitive rule set while maintaining the utility of the database and association rule mining results at the highest level. The performance of the algorithm in terms of the side effects is demonstrated using experiments conducted on two real datasets. The results show that the information loss is minimized without sacrificing the accuracy. </div>
