On May 1–2, 2008, the National Center for Health Statistics/CDC (NCHS) and the National Institute of Statistical Sciences (NISS) co-sponsored a workshop “Data Confi- dentiality: The Next Five Years,” which was held at NCHS’ headquarters in Hyattsville, MD. The purpose of the workshop was to bring together the academic and federal data confidentiality research communities, including mathematicians, mathematical statisticians, statisticians, computer scientists, cryptographers, and federal agency “owners” of data confidentiality problems in order to:
- Identify important unsolved research problems associated with data confidentiality;
- Articulate a research agenda that both addresses those problems and responds to current and emerging needs among federal statistical agencies;
- Discuss and catalyze the kinds of collaborations among mathematicians, mathematical statisticians, statisticians, computer scientists, cryptographers, domain scientists, and data-owning agencies that are needed to pursue the research agenda.
