PPContactTracing: A Privacy-Preserving Contact Tracing Protocol for COVID-19 Pandemic

by   Priyanka Singh, et al.

Several contact tracing solutions have been proposed and implemented all around the globe to combat the spread of COVID-19 pandemic. But, most of these solutions endanger the privacy rights of the individuals and hinder their widespread adoption. We propose a privacy-preserving contact tracing protocol for the efficient tracing of the spread of the global pandemic. It is based on the private set intersection (PSI) protocol and utilizes the homomorphic properties to preserve the privacy at the individual level. A hierarchical model for the representation of landscapes and rate-limiting factor on the number of queries have been adopted to maintain the efficiency of the protocol.
