- Description: Abstract—Preserving privacy in participatory sensing systems has recently gained research interest as voluntary contribution in such systems is not worthy if the privacy of the participants is not protected. On the other hand, data integrity is desired imperatively to make the service trustworthy and user-friendly. In this paper, we have proposed an adaptive location anonymization technique, which is capable of retaining an acceptable level of data integrity while keeping its vulnerability to eavesdropping adversaries low. Experimental results establish the proposed concept as a superior approach in balancing, somehow orthogonal, user privacy and data integrity.
