Extending Private Information Retrieval (PIR) for Privacy Enabling Personalisation

Thesis type

Advisor(s)

PIR is an approach for database queries in which the database can neither see the query nor the result, yet it can trust that constraints such as access control are followed. Can this be extended to enable personalisation if the query represents a user profile, and the constraints represent the logic/rules of the recommender system?

The main task of this thesis is to investigate approaches for extending the private information retrieval paradigm and implementing and evaluating an implementation of such an extension.

Prerequisites

good knowledge of Java and/or C++, some knowledge of cryptography, willingness to engage with an active research topic.
