Analysis of Privacy-Enhancing ProtocolsBased on Anonymity Networks
2012 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, we analyze privacy-enhancing protocolsfor Smart Grids that are based on anonymity networks. Theunderlying idea behind such protocols is attributing two distinctpartial identities for each consumer. One is used to send realtimeinformation about the power consumption, and the otherfor transmitting the billing information. Such protocols providesender-anonymity for the real-time information, while consolidateddata is sent for billing. In this work, the privacy propertiesof such protocols are analyzed, and their computational efficiencyis evaluated and compared using simulation to other solutionsbased on homomorphic encryption.
