A market for secrets

Eytan Adar, Bernardo A. Huberman

Abstract


We propose an electronic market system for private data that guarantees levels of privacy, anonymity and control to individuals while maintaining the ability of other entities to mine their information and automatically pay individuals for their data. We also describe a novel procedure that allows data miners to anonymously contact the creators of the information in case their profiles are needed for future research.
