Mitigating Anonymity Challenges in Automated Testing and Debugging Systems

  title={Mitigating Anonymity Challenges in Automated Testing and Debugging Systems},
  author={Silviu Andrica and George Candea},
Modern software often provides automated testing and bug reporting facilities that enable developers to improve the software after release. Alas, this comes at the cost of user anonymity: reported execution traces may identify users. We present a way to mitigate this inherent tension between developer utility and user anonymity: automatically transform execution traces in a way that preserves their utility for testing and debugging while, at the same time, providing k-anonymity to users, i.e… CONTINUE READING
