In general, designing reasonable metrics for privacy quantification is an approach of several disciplines. This section focuses on technical and formal metrics. They can be distinguished depending on purposes or use-cases, available data, and the way results can be interpreted.

The purpose of a privacy metric for protocols or communication systems is to measure the degree of privacy which it can provide to its users. A purpose of a privacy metric for an individual user is to inform her about the privacy she may actually expect with respect to her situation, that is, for instance, her previous actions.
