We have recently submitted a new version of the privacy and identity management terminology document:
The full document titel is “Terminology for Talking about Privacy by Data Minimization: Anonymity, Unlinkability, Undetectability, Unobservability, Pseudonymity, and Identity Management” and here is the abstract:
This document is an attempt to consolidate terminology in the field
privacy by data minimization. It motivates and develops definitions
for anonymity/identifiability, (un)linkability, (un)detectability,
(un)observability, pseudonymity, identity, partial identity, digital
identity and identity management. Starting the definitions from the
anonymity and unlinkability perspective and not from a definition of
identity (the latter is the obvious approach to some people) reveals
some deeper structures in this field.
Please let us know whether the terminology is useful and complete. Your input is highly appreciated!
