WO/2016/153430 METHOD OF OBFUSCATING DATA||WO||29.09.2016|
||PCT/SG2016/050134||HUAWEI INTERNATIONAL PTE. LTD.||YUEN, Tsz Hon|
Embodiments of the invention provide system and method of obfuscating data. According to one embodiment, a plurality of random numbers is generated by applying a one-way compression function to a plurality of auxiliary inputs which may at least include a secret key and a data partner identifier. Iteratively, for each row of data to be obfuscated, the following is performed: a plurality of data blocks is constructed from the each row of data to be obfuscated, wherein the number (n) of the data blocks is predetermined; a dot product is generated which is obtained by: generating a plurality of products by multiplying each of the plurality of data blocks with an exclusive one of the plurality of random numbers and summing the plurality of products; and an obfuscated form of the each row of data to be obfuscated is generated by determining a remainder of a modulo operation which is performed using the dot product as dividend and a predetermined integer value as divisor.

There is provided a method of determining a location of a vehicle including obtaining a curve segment of a path navigated by the vehicle (estimated by an inertial navigation system), selecting one or more candidate curve segments from a road network database resembling the curve segment of the navigated path obtained, identifying one of the candidate curve segments as matching the curve segment of the navigated path, and determining the location of the vehicle based on the matching curve segment identified. The method includes comparing the curve segment of the navigated path with a curve segment from the road network database to determine whether the curve segment from the road network database qualifies as a candidate curve segment, and scaling at least one of the curve segment of the navigated path and the curve segment from the road network database to reduce a difference in length therebetween for the comparison.
