Abstract – In data mining the high utility item sets is an emerging topic, which refers to discovering all item sets having a utility meeting a user-specified minimum utility threshold. But the setting of minimum utility threshold value is a tedious process. Difficulty arises in discovering all item sets having a utility, meeting a user specified minimum utility threshold. In order to overcome these problems the proposed method utilizes frequent item sets mining which finds sets of items that frequently appear together in a database. A variety of algorithms have been proposed for mining frequent item sets. The proposed method implements PFP growth algorithm, which performs pre-processing to improve the utility and privacy trade-off and novel splitting algorithm, to support transformation in the database. To improve the utility-privacy tradeoffs, here implemented that long transactions should be split rather than truncated. That is, the database gets transformed by dividing long transactions into multiple subsets each of which meets the maximal length constraint. This method supports high time efficiency, high data utility and degree of privacy.
