FLAIM (Framework for Log Anonymization and
Information Management) addresses two important needs
not well addressed by current log anonymizers. First, it is extremely
modular and not tied to the specific log being anonymized. Second, it
supports multi-level anonymization, allowing system administrators to
make fine-grained trade-offs between information loss and
privacy/security concerns. In this paper, we examine anonymization
solutions to date and note the above limitations in each. We further
describe how FLAIM addresses these problems, and we describe FLAIM's
architecture and features in detail.
