@reillyeon Sounds good, i've gone back to the paper authors to see if they can give guidance on how much precision would need to be reduced to reduce identifiability.  I expect it'll just be precision / bits-of-identification trade off, but there might be some sig threshold they can point to where the attack becomes infeasible, or more likely, as precision increases linearly, identification should (might?) increase exponentially, so there should be a useful / beneficial tradeoff to be made.

Either way, I'm speculating; i'll circle back in a few days or when i hear back from the researchers.  Thanks!
