MPI-SWS releases the first data anonymization tool as part of the Open Diffix project.
Open Diffix is an MPI-SWS-supported open software project to develop strong but usable data anonymization. Open Diffix is built on the data anonymization technology Diffix, which has been developed in a research partnership between the group of Paul Francis and Aircloak GmbH. Open Diffix recently released its first tool, „Diffix for Desktop“. Designed with extreme ease-of-use in mind, Diffix for Desktop can be used by non-experts to safely release sensitive data to the public. Diffix for Desktop frees users from concerns about anonymity, allowing them to focus on data quality.
