Differentially-Private Kth Ranked Element Protocol

This is an implementation of the Leaky Kth Ranked Element Protocol (KRE) as described in [1] with differential privacy.

Getting Started

You first need to install the dependencies. This can be done by running the following command:

cargo build

Additionally, you need some Python packages to create the plots used for the accuracy tests. These can be installed by running:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Running the Protocol

Now, you can run the tests which execute the original kth-ranked element protocol. The test file is located in src/test.rs, there you can adapt parameters like the database size or the number of parties. To run the tests, execute the following command:

cargo test --lib test::tests

Or, if you only want to run the multi-party test, use --lib test::tests::test_multi_party instead.

Accuracy Tests

The accuracy tests for the original and the DP protocol can be run by executing the following command:

Hint: You can adapt all parameters such as the database size, the number of parties, number of runs, etc. in the src/dp_test.rs file.

cargo test --lib dp_test::dp_test::test_dp

The results for the different noise levels are saved as different plots in the accuracy_results directory.

accuracy_results/
├── high noise - The results for the high noise level.
│   ├── bar_plot_max ----> The histogram plot for searching for the maximum.
│   ├── bar_plot_median ----> The histogram plot for searching for the median.
│   ├── bar_plot_min ----> The histogram plot for searching for the minimum.
│   ├── noise_plot_max ----> The noise plot for searching for the maximum.
│   ├── noise_plot_median ----> The noise plot for searching for the median.
│   └── noise_plot_min ----> The noise plot for searching for the minimum.
│   
├── low noise - The results for the low noise level.
├── medium noise - The results for the low noise level.
│   
└───scatter - The scatter plots for the different noise levels.
    ├── scatter_plot_max ----> The scatter plot for searching for the maximum.
    ├── scatter_plot_median ----> The scatter plot for searching for the median.
    └── scatter_plot_min ----> The scatter plot for searching for the minimum.

Benchmarks

The benchmarks for the original and the DP protocol can be run by executing the following command:

cargo bench

You will find the results in the bench_results directory:

bench_results/
├── Protocol DP ----> Contains the benchmarks for the DP protocol for the different noise levels.
├── Protocol Leakage ---> Contains the benchmarks for the original protocol.

To view the generated plots all in one, you can open the respective report/index.html file in your browser.
