UTD Anonymization Toolbox

  • Description: “In an effort to promote our research in the area of privacy preserving data analysis, at UT Dallas Data Security and Privacy Lab, we compiled our implementation of various anonymization methods into a toolbox for public use by researchers. The algorithms can either be applied directly to a dataset or can be used as library functions inside other applications. The toolbox currently contains 6 different anonymization methods over 3 different privacy definitions: Datafly, Mondrian Multidimensional k-Anonymity, Incognito, Incognito with l-diversity, Incognito with t-closeness, Anatomy.” (Source: Website)
