Performance analysis of perturbation-based privacy preserving techniques: an experimental perspective

Ritu Ratra, Preeti Gulia, Nasib Singh Gill


Nowadays, enormous amounts of data are produced every second. These data also contain private information from sources including media platforms, the banking sector, finance, healthcare, and criminal histories. Data mining is a method for looking through and analyzing massive volumes of data to find usable information. Preserving personal data during data mining has become difficult, thus privacy-preserving data mining (PPDM) is used to do so. Data perturbation is one of the several tactics used by the PPDM data privacy protection mechanism. In perturbation, datasets are perturbed in order to preserve personal information. Both data accuracy and data privacy are addressed by it. This paper will explore and compare several hybrid perturbation strategies that may be used to protect data privacy. For this, two perturbation-based techniques named improved random projection perturbation (IRPP) and enhanced principal component analysis-based technique (EPCAT) were used. These methods are employed to assess the precision, run time, and accuracy of the experimental results. This paper provides the impacts of perturbation-based privacy preserving techniques. It is observed that hybrid approaches are more efficient than the traditional approach.
