  • There is an increasing concern about the protection of anony- mity and privacy in electronic services. Many web sites store and process personal data of users in order to provide a better service. Users prefer not to give away personal information if this can be avoided. This paper introduces a model, based on Shannon's deflnition of entropy, with which the degree of anonymity of a set of users grouped in several subsets can be quantifled in an objective way. This model is applied to a… CONTINUE READING
