Privacy-preserving data publishing has received much attention in recent years. Prior studies have developed various algorithms such as generalization, anatomy, and L-diversity slicing to protect individuals’ privacy when transactional data are published for public use. These existing algorithms, however, all have certain limitations. For instance, generalization protects identity privacy well but loses a considerable amount of information. Anatomy prevents attribute disclosure and lowers information loss, but fails to protect membership privacy. The more recent probability L-diversity slicing algorithm overcomes some shortcomings of generalization and anatomy, but cannot shield data from more subtle types of attacks such as skewness attack and similarity attack. To meet the demand of data owners with high privacy-preserving requirement, this study develops a novel method named t-closeness slicing (TCS) to better protect transactional data against various attacks. The time complexity of TCS is log-linear,...
