Abstract

With the rapid development of information techniques, data mining approaches have become one of the most important tools to discover the in-deep associations of tuples in large-scale database. Hence how to protect the private information is quite a huge challenge, especially during the data mining procedure. In this paper, a new method is proposed for privacy protection which is based on fuzzy theory. The traditional fuzzy approach in this area will apply fuzzification to the data without considering its readability. A new style of obscured data expression is introduced to provide more details of the subsets without reducing the readability. Also we adopt a balance approach between the privacy level and utility when to achieve the suitable subgroups. An experiment is provided to show that this approach is suitable for the classification without a lower accuracy. In the future, this approach can be adapted to the data stream as the low computation complexity of the fuzzy function with a suitable modification.
