Confidentiality-Preserving Publishing of EDPs for Credulous and Skeptical Users

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7773)


Publishing private data on external servers incurs the problem of how to avoid unwanted disclosure of confidential data. We study the problem of confidentiality-preservation when publishing extended disjunctive logic programs and show how it can be solved by extended abduction. In particular, we analyze how the differences between users who employ either credulous or skeptical non-monotonic reasoning affect confidentiality.
