The prior probability of a property of a customer’s private information is the likelihood of the property in the absence of any knowledge about the customer’s private information.
A Framework for High-Accuracy Privacy-Preserving Mining
As discussed in , in order to preserve the privacy of some property of a customer’s private information, we desire that the posterior probability of that property should not be much higher than the prior probability of the property for the customer.

We show an analog of the composition property of differentially private procedures which applies to our new definition.
Random Differential Privacy
In this paper we introduce the concept of quantum private channel within the continuous variables framework (CVPQC) and investigate its properties.
Continuous variable private quantum channel
For the start we have restricted ourselves on coherent states which belong to the important class of states with the Gaussian distribution function. A particular continuous variable private quantum channel was proposed and we have studied its properties.
Continuous variable private quantum channel
Our approach relies on the well-known property that any post-processing of differentially private data remains differentially private; see [15, 14].
Differentially Private Publication of Sparse Data
In usual statistical settings h to do this it is necessary to find a differentially private version of (cid:98)h and then to employ the composition is a parameter that is tuned depending on the data (not simply set to the correct order of growth as a property of differential privacy (citation).
Differential Privacy for Functions and Functional Data
Given an algorithm A, we design a tester Atest with the following property: if the tester outputs Y ES , then Algorithm A is (α, γ , β )-generalized differentially private where the parameters β and γ can be made arbitrarily small (at the cost of increased running time).
