Privacy is an issue of increasing concern to the Inter- net user. To ensure the continued success of distributed information systems, a reliable information flow must be established in certified but immediately evident ways. We begin with basic consideration of the privacy problem in the general setting of database enquiries. From there, we develop a simple solution, which we illustrate with a simple implementation in the programming language Erlang. We first provide an informal security analysis that is then developed into a formal definition of a type system for noninterference.
