Privacy-preserving model-based recommendation methods are preferable over privacy-preserving memory-based schemes due to their online efficiency. Model-based prediction algorithms without privacy concerns have been investigated with respect to shilling attacks. Similarly, various privacy-preserving model-based recommendation techniques have been proposed to handle privacy issues. However, privacy-preserving model-based collaborative filtering schemes might be subjected to shilling or profile injection attacks. Therefore, their robustness against such attacks should be scrutinized.
