Abstract: The present age of internet and the rising of business have resulted into many folds of increase in the volume of data which are to be used for various applications on a day to day basis. Therefore, it is an obvious challenge to reduce the dataset and find useful information pertaining to the interest of the organisation. But another challenge lies in hiding sensitive information in order to provide privacy. Thus, attribute reduction and privacy preservation are two major challenges in privacy preserving data mining. In this paper, we propose a sensitive rule hiding model to hide sensitive fuzzy association rules. Proposed model uses rough set on intuitionistic fuzzy approximation spaces with ordering to reduce the dataset dimensionality. We use triangular and trapezoidal membership function to get the fuzzified information system. Finally, decreasing the support of right hand side of the rule is used to hide sensitive fuzzy association rules.

Keywords: almost indiscernibility; intuitionistic fuzzy proximity relations; ordering rules; intuitionistic fuzzy sets; rough sets; DSR; privacy preservation; privacy protection; fuzzy association rules; intuitionistic fuzzy approximation spaces.
