Hi all,

This group should be interested in this updated document about privacy &
identity management terminology:
The full document titel is "Terminology for Talking about Privacy by
Data Minimization: Anonymity, Unlinkability, Undetectability,
Unobservability, Pseudonymity, and Identity Management" and here is the

   This document is an attempt to consolidate terminology in the field
   privacy by data minimization. It motivates and develops definitions
   for anonymity/identifiability, (un)linkability, (un)detectability,
   (un)observability, pseudonymity, identity, partial identity, digital
   identity and identity management. Starting the definitions from the
   anonymity and unlinkability perspective and not from a definition of
   identity (the latter is the obvious approach to some people) reveals
   some deeper structures in this field.
I hope someone is able to provide some review comments.
