“Confidentiality Protection and Physical Safeguards: A Review”
Lars Vilhuber, PhD
Confidentiality protection is a multi-layered concept, involving statistical (cryptographic) methods and physical safeguards. When providing access to researchers (both internal to the agency and external academic), a tension arises between the level of trust vis-à-vis the researcher, the statistical disclosure limitation applied to the data visible to the researcher; and the physical access mechanisms used by the researcher. This presentation will review systems used by national and private research organizations around the world, putting them into the relevant legal and societal context.
