Definitions Edit

Inference is

the act or process of deriving logical conclusions from premises known or assumed to be true.
[i]nformation derived from analysis of information collected directly from communications by an eavesdropper or observer.[1]
refers to the ability to deduce the identity of a person associated with a set of data through "clues" contained in that information. This analysis permits determination of the individual's identity based on a combination of facts associated with that person even though specific identifiers have been removed, like name and social security number.[2]
