"User privacy in web search"

 

Abstract:
We will review the various ways for the user of a search engine or a database to preserve her privacy. We will cover private information retrieval and anonymous keyword search, both standalone and peer-to-peer. We will also sketch the notion of coprivacy, whereby peers in a network are interested in helping each other to preserve their privacy.
