Health care and social inference systems: An unauthorized inference control based on fuzzy logic

Souhila Kaci, Abdeslam Ali-Laouar, Frédéric Cuppens

Abstract

In this paper, we address the problem of unauthorized inference of confidential information in the field of health care and social information systems. More precisely, we will focus on the problem of inference control of confidential information from statistical databases which contain information about patients and propopse a method based on fuzzy logic to avoid unauthorized inference. Information provided using our approach remains relevant because it is without loss of quality.
