Data encoding because of security reasons
There are simple ways how to "hide" your actual data so that they can not be misused even if they would come in hands of unauthorized persons. The suggested transforms are:
- Use coded attribute names (A001, A002 ...)
- Instead of the example names, use numbers
- Replace nominal attribute values with simple strings like str01, str02, ...
- Normalize continuous attribute values by max. values or standard deviations of the data set
