NIST Seeks Comments on De-identification Report

The National Institute of Standards and Technology has released a draft report on "De-Identification of Personally Identifiable Information." The agency is requesting comments by May 15. The NIST report reviews de-identification techniques and research, including work by EPIC Advisory Board members Cynthia Dwork and Latanya Sweeney. Last year, in response to a similar request for comments, EPIC recommended Privacy Enhancing Technologies that "minimize or eliminate the collection of personally identifiable information." EPIC also expressed support for Fair Information Practices and the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights.
