Oklahoma State University - VP for Research and Technology Transfer.
May  2008
Abstract: Data shuffling is a method developed by Sarathy that rearranges confidential information from data sets in a complex, coordinate fashion so that it maintains confidentiality. In this project, Sarathy will collaborate with researchers at the University of Kentucky to develop the data shuffling method into a marketable software program. The need for data masking methods has increased with the advent of technologies like the Internet and data mining tools that pose substantial threats to privacy, Sarathy said. Commercial organizations, government agencies and healthcare institutions need ways to analyze and/or disseminate confidential information in a safe way. Unlike adding “noise,” another method for masking, the shuffled data looks natural making it appear more reasonable to users. After development is complete, Sarathy plans to create a spin-off company housed in Stillwater to manufacture the software program.
