Privacy in mobile phone trajectory data: indistinguishability and uninformativeness



Mobile network operators collect information about the movements of their subscribers via passive or active monitoring of mobile device locations. The recorded trajectories offer an unprecedented outlook on the activities of large user populations, which enables developing new networking solutions and services, and scaling up studies in multiple research disciplines. Yet, the disclosure of individual trajectories raises significant privacy concerns that personal data protection regulations are translating into legal requirements. Meeting such requirements creates a need for solutions that anonymise mobile phone trajectories while preserving data quality. In this talk, I will present contributions to the design of such solutions, discussing the implementation of two important privacy principles, indistinguishability and uninformativeness, in mobile phone trajectory data.
