Privacy preserving encrypted phonetic search of speech data

Glackin, C., Chollet, G., Dugan, N. , Cannings, N., Wall, J., Tahir, S. F., Ray, I. G. & Rajarajan, M. (2017). Privacy preserving encrypted phonetic search of speech data. 2017 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing - Proceedings, pp. 6414-6418. doi: 10.1109/icassp.2017.7953391


This paper presents a strategy for enabling speech recognition to be performed in the cloud whilst preserving the privacy of users. The approach advocates a demarcation of responsibilities between the client and server-side components for performing the speech recognition task. On the client-side resides the acoustic model, which symbolically encodes the audio and encrypts the data before uploading to the server. The server-side then employs searchable encryption to enable the phonetic search of the speech content. Some preliminary results for speech encoding and searchable encryption are presented.
