Abstract

The machine learning community has focused on confidentiality problems associated with statistical analyses that “integrate” data stored in multiple, distributed databases where there are barriers to simply integrating the databases. This paper discusses various techniques which can be used to perform statistical analysis for categorical data, especially in the form of log-linear analysis and logistic regression over partitioned databases, while limiting confidentiality concerns. We show how ideas from the current literature that focus on “secure” summations and secure regression analysis can be adapted or generalized to the categorical data setting.
