Real-Time Privacy-Preserving Data Release for Smart Meters


Smart Meters (SMs) are a fundamental component of smart grids, but they carry sensitive information about users such as occupancy status of houses and therefore, they have raised serious concerns about leakage of consumers private information. In particular, we focus on real-time privacy threats, i.e., potential attackers that try to infer sensitive data from SMs reported data in an online fashion. We adopt an information-theoretic privacy measure and show that it effectively limits the performance of any real-time attacker. Using this privacy measure, we propose a general formulation to design a privatization mechanism that can provide a target level of privacy by adding a minimal amount of distortion to the SMs measurements. On the other hand, to cope with different applications, a flexible distortion measure is considered. This formulation leads to a general loss function, which is optimized using a deep learning adversarial framework, where two neural networks-referred to as the releaser and the adversary-are trained with opposite goals. An exhaustive empirical study is then performed to validate the performances of the proposed approach for the occupancy detection privacy problem, assuming the attacker disposes of either limited or full access to the training dataset.
