Abstract: Privacy-preserving data analysis has been put on a firm mathematical foundation since the introduction of differential privacy (DP) in 2006. This privacy definition, however, has some well-known weaknesses: notably, it does not tightly handle composition. This weakness has inspired several recent relaxations of differential privacy based on the Renyi divergences. We propose an alternative relaxation we term “f-DP”, which has a number of nice properties and avoids some of the difficulties associated with divergence based relaxations. First, f-DP preserves…
