Individuals are continually observed and monitored by many location-based services, such as social networks, telecommunication companies, mobile networks, etc. The resulting streams of data, which are usually analyzed in real time, can reveal sensitive information about individuals, e.g. home/work location or private mobility patterns. Therefore, there is a need for stream processing algorithms able to anonymize datasets in real time to ensure certain privacy guarantees, but at the same time keeping a low error. In this paper, we describe how statistical disclosure control (SDC) methods can be applied to a Call Detail Record (CDR) database in a stream fashion to mask location information efficiently. Besides, we also provide some experimental results over a real database.
