Understanding differential privacy and why it matters for digital rights

In a three-part series, we’ll describe the way private companies, like Apple, both properly and improperly use differential privacy tools. In a globally private system, one trusted party, whom we’ll call the curator — like Alice, above — has access to raw, private data from lots of different people.

We will use RSA for this and the inputs to it will be the Public key of Bob and SecretKey. The outputs of steps 6 and 7 are now appended and sent as the final message to Bob.
