This has trig er ed the de- velopment of

many privacy-pr eserving data mining tec h- niques. lar fr action of them use andomized data dis- tortion tec hniques to mask the data for pr eserving the pri- vacy of sensitive data. This methodolo gy attempts to hide the sensitive data by andomly modifying the data values of- ten using additive noise This paper questions the utility of the andom value distortion tec hnique in privacy pr eserva- tion. The paper notes that andom objects (particularly an- dom matrices) have “pr edictable structur es in the spectr al domain and it de velops andom matrix-based spectr al fil- tering tec

hnique to etrie ve original data fr om the dataset distorted by adding andom values. The paper pr esents the theor etical foundation of this filtering method and xtensive xperimental esults to demonstr ate that in many cases an- dom data distortion pr eserve very little data privacy 1. Intr oduction Man data mining applications deal with pri ac y- sensiti data. Financial transactions, health-care records, and netw ork communication traf fic are some xam- ples. Data mining in such pri ac y-sensiti domains is ac- ing gro wing concerns. Therefore, we need to de elop data mining

techniques that are sensiti to the pri ac is- sue. This has fostered the de elopment of class of data mining algorithms [2 9] that try to xtract the data pat- terns without directly accessing the original data and guarantees that the mining process does not get suf fi- cient information to reconstruct the original data. This paper considers class of techniques for pri ac y- preserving data mining by randomly perturbing the data while preserving the underlying probabilistic properties. It xplores the random alue perturbation-based approach [2 ], well-kno wn technique for masking the data

using ran- dom noise. This approach tries to preserv data pri ac by adding random noise, while making sure that the random noise still preserv es the “signal from the data so that the patterns can still be accurately estimated. This paper ques- tions the pri ac y-preserving capability of the random alue perturbation-based approach. It sho ws that in man cases, the original data (sometimes called “signal in this paper) can be accurately estimated from the perturbed data using spectral filter that xploits some theoretical properties of random matrices. It presents the theoretical

foundation and pro vides xperimental results to support this claim. Section of fers an ervie of the related literature on pri ac preserving data mining.

Related ork There xists gro wing body of literature on pri ac y- sensiti data mining. These algorithms can be di vided into se eral dif ferent groups. One approach adopts dis- trib uted frame ork. This approach supports computation of data mining models and xtraction of “patterns at gi en node by xchanging only the minimal necessary informa- tion among the participating nodes without transmitting the ra data. Pri ac preserving association rule mining from homogeneous [9

and heterogeneous [19 distrib uted data sets are fe xamples. The second approach is based on

data-sw apping which orks by sw apping data alues within same feature [3 ]. There is also an approach which orks by adding ran- dom noise to the data in such ay that the indi vidual data alues are distorted preserving the underlying distrib ution properties at macroscopic le el. The algorithms belong- ing to this group orks by first perturbing the data using randomized techniques. The perturbed data is then used to xtract the patterns and models. The randomized alue dis- tortion

technique for learning decision trees [2 and associ- ation rule learning [6 are xamples of this approach. Ad- ditional ork on randomized masking of data can be found else where [18 ]. This paper xplores the third approach [2 ]. It points out that in man cases the noise can be separated from the per turbed data by studying the spectral properties of the data and as result its pri ac can be seriously compromised. Agra al and Aggarw al [1 ha also considered the ap- proach in [2 and ha pro vided xpectation-maximization (EM) algorithm for reconstructing the distrib ution of the original data from

perturbed observ ations. The also pro- vide information theoretic measures (mutual information) to quantify the amount of pri ac pro vided by randomiza- tion approach. Agra al and Aggarw al [1 remark that the method suggested in [2 does not tak into account the dis- trib ution of the original data (which could be used to guess the data alue to higher le el of accurac y). Ho we er [1] pro vides no xplicit procedure to reconstruct the original data alues. Evfimie vski et al. [5 and Rizvi [15 ha also considered the approach in [2 in the conte xt of asso- ciation rule mining and suggest

techniques for limiting pri- ac breaches. Our primary contrib ution is to pro vide an xplicit filtering procedure, based on random matrix theory that can be used to estimate the original data alues. 3. Moti ation As noted in the pre vious section, gro wing body of pri- ac preserving data mining techniques are adopting ran- domization as primary tool to “hide information. While randomization is an important tool, it must be used ery carefully in pri ac y-preserving application. Randomness may not necessarily imply uncertainty Random ents can often be analyzed and their prop- erties can be

xplained using probabilistic frame orks. Statistics, randomized computation, and man other re- lated fields are full of theorems, la ws, and algorithms that rely on probabilistic characterization of random pro- cesses that often ork quite accurately The signal pro- cessing literature [12 of fers man filters to remo white noise from data and the often ork reasonably well. Ran- domly generated structures lik graphs demonstrate inter esting properties [7 ]. In short, randomness does seem to ha “structure and this structure may be used to com- promise pri ac issues unless we pay

careful attention. The rest of this paper illustrates this challenge in the con- te xt of well-kno wn pri ac preserving technique that orks using random additi noise. 4. Random alue erturbation echnique: Brief Re view or the sak of completeness, we no briefly re vie the random data perturbation method suggested in [2 for hid- ing the data (i.e. guaranteeing protection against the recon- struction of the data) while still being able to estimate the underlying distrib ution. 4.1. erturbing the Data The random alue perturbation method attempts to pre- serv pri ac of the data by modifying

alues of the sensi- ti attrib utes using randomized process [2 ]. The authors xplore tw possible approaches alue-Class Member ship and alue Distortion and emphasize the alue Dis- tortion approach. In this approach, the wner of dataset re- turns alue  where  is the original data, and is random alue dra wn from certain distrib ution. Most com- monly used distrib utions are the uniform distrib ution er an interv al     and Gaussian distrib ution with mean  and standard de viation The original data al- ues    !" are vie wed as realizations of indepen- dent and

identically distrib uted (i.i.d.) random ariables &% (')  ! each with the same distrib ution as that of random ariable In order to perturb the data, inde- pendent samples !   are dra wn from distrib u- tion The wner of the data pro vides the perturbed alues + ! ,   + and the cumulati distri- ution function -/.103254 of The reconstruction problem is to estimate the distrib ution -7680394 of the original data, from the perturbed data. 4.2.

The authors suggest an iterati procedure where at each step G% ('>  the posterior density  0:4 estimated at step 7 is used in the right-hand side of equation 1. The uniform density is used to initialize the iterations. The iter ations are carried out until the dif ference between succes- si estimates becomes

small. In order to speed up compu- tations, the authors also discuss approximations to the abo procedure using partitioning of the domain of data alues. 5. Randomness and atter ns The random perturbation technique “apparently distorts the sensiti attrib ute alues and still allo ws estimation of the underlying distrib ution information. Ho we er does this apparent distortion fundamentally prohibit us from xtract- ing the hidden information? This section presents dis- cussion on the properties of random matrices and presents some results that will be used later in this paper Random matrices [13

xhibit man interesting proper ties that are often xploited in high ener gy physics [13 ], sig- nal processing [16 ], and en data mining [10 ]. The random noise added to the data can be vie wed as random matrix and therefore its properties can be understood by studying the properties of random matrices. In this paper we shall de- elop spectral filter designed based on random matrix the- ory for xtracting the hidden data from the data perturbed by random noise. or our approach, we are mainly concerned about distri- ution of eigen alues of the sample co ariance matrix ob- tained from random

Ho we er in practice, one can design filter based on this approxima- tion to filter out the perturbation from the data. Experimen- tal results presented in the follo wing sections indicate that this pro vides good reco ery of the data. 7. Random Matrix-Based Data Filtering This section describes the proposed filter

for xtracting the original data from the noisy perturbed data. Suppose ac- tual data is perturbed by randomly generated noise ma- trix in order to produce Let  >= 5 @?

The

perturbed data ector is then split into fix ed number of ectors with equal length and all of these ectors are ap- pended to form matrix.

As sho wn in Figure 3, the perturbed data is ery dif ferent from the actual

Comparison ith Results in [2 The proposed spectral filtering technique can estimate alues of indi vidual data-points from the perturbed dataset. This point-wise estimation can then be used to reconstruct the distrib ution of actual data as well. The methods sug- gested by [2 can only reconstruct the distrib ution of the original data from the data perturbed by random alue dis- tortion; ut it does not consider estimation of

the indi vidual alues of the data-points. The spectral filtering technique, on the other hand, is xplicitly designed to reconstruct the indi vidual data-points and hence, also the distrib ution of the actual dataset. tried to replicate the xperiment reported in [2 using our method to reco er the triangular distrib ution. used ector data of %S alues ha ving triangular distrib ution as sho wn in Figure in [2 ].

Figure sho ws portion of the actual data, their al- ues after distortion, and their estimated alues. Note that the estimated alues are ery close to the actual alues, com- pared to the perturbed alues. Using the estimate of indi- vidual data-points, we reconstruct the distrib ution of the ac- tual data. Figure sho ws estimation of the distrib ution from the estimated alue of indi vidual data-points. The distrib u- tion of the

perturbed data is ery dif ferent than the actual triangular distrib ution, ut the estimated distrib ution looks ery similar to the original distrib ution. This sho ws that our method reco ers the original distrib ution along with indi- vidual data-points, similar to the result reported in [2 ]. The estimation accurac is greater than  for all datapoints. Since spectral filtering can filter out the indi vidual alues of actual data and its distrib ution from perturbed represen- tation, it breaches the pri ac preserving protection of the randomized data perturbation technique [2].

8.3. Effect of erturbation ariance and the In- her ent Random Component of the Actual Data Quality of the data reco ery depends upon the rela- ti noise content in the perturbed data. use the SNR (see equation (10) to quantify the relati amount of noise added to actual data to perturb it. As the noise added to the actual alue increases, the SNR decreases. Our xper iments sho that the proposed filtering method predicts the actual data reasonably well up to SNR alue of 1.0 (i.e. %  noise). The results sho wn in Figure corresponds to an SNR alue nearly 2, i.e. noise content is about 

Fig- ure sho ws data-block where the SNR is As the SNR goes belo 1, the estimation becomes too erroneous. Fig- ure sho ws the dif ference in estimation accurac as the SNR increases from 1. The dataset used here has sinu- soidal trend in its alues. The top graph corresponds to  noise (SNR 4.3), whereas the bottom graph corresponds to %  noise (SNR 1.0). Another important actor that af fects the quality of re- co ery of the actual data is the inherent noise in the actual dataset (apart from the perturbation noise added intention- ally). If the actual dataset has random component in it,

and random noise is added to perturb it, spectral filtering method does not filter the actual data accurately Our x- periments with some inherently noisy real life dataset sho that the eigen alues of signal and noise no longer remains clearly separable since the their eigen alues may not be dis- trib uted er tw non-o erlapping re gimes an longer 50 100 150 200 250 300 −2 −1 Variation of Estimation Accuracy with SNR −−Value of Feature−−> Estimated data Actual data 50 100 150 200 250 300 −10 −5 10 Plot of Sinusoidal Feature,Estimated vs

Ho we er this opens up dif ferent question: Is the ran- dom component of the original data set really important as ar as data mining is concerned? One may ar gue that most data mining techniques xploit only the non-random struc- tured patterns of the data. Therefore, losing the

inherent ran- dom component of the original data may not be important in pri ac preserving data mining application. 9.
