⚠️ The deidentify.org proof of concept is no longer active. A more secure redevelopment of the system is needed before launching publicly.


deidentify.org is a cloud platform for data custodians to share data with researchers in a way that meets Victorian privacy legislation and Australian human research ethics guidelines for non-identifiable data. Unlike existing methods in which the data custodian substitutes names with anonymous identifiers then hands over the full ‘de-identified’ dataset to researchers — which may still lead to re-identification or permit unethical uses if the dataset contains quasi-identifiers such as times, dates, or locations — deidentify.org encourages researchers to write analysis programs that extract just the data they need, and gives the data custodian control over which analyses can run.
