Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.
Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Data Privacy and Anonymization of Simulated Health-Care Dataset using the ARX Open-Source Tool by Yogesh Beeharry, N.Y. Fakeeroodeen, T.P. Fowdur Abstract: Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data Analytics fields have been adopted in many practical applications geared towards the concept of smart cities and smart world. One critical aspect of these concepts is that of Smart-Health where private health information has to be transmitted over networks. The main concern arising in this scenario is that of data privacy and anonymity. Various open source tools and algorithms have been developed along this line. In this work, an analysis of the K-anonymity and differential privacy alongside t-closeness for sensitive attributes, algorithms have been performed on a simulated health-care dataset using the ARX open-source tool. The results demonstrate that the two models with t-closeness provided similar output results in relation to risk analysis, utility statistics and output data indicating equal appropriateness for both models. However, their property of transformation differed from each other. Keywords: Data Anonymization; privacy; K-Anonymity; Differential Privacy; ARX open-source tool.
