An introduction to information-theoretic approaches to differential privacy

Unsal, Ayse ; Önen, Melek
Report

This tutorial studies relationships between differential privacy and various information-theoretic measures. In particular, we present how these relationships can provide new interpretations for the privacy guarantee in systems that deploy differential privacy. This tutorial offers an extensive summary on the existing literature that makes use of information-theoretic measures and notions such as mutual information, relative entropy, rate-distortion function for quantifying differential privacy in various settings.
