Abstract

We propose access to data and knowledge to be controlled through fine-grained, user-specified explicitly represented policies. Fine-grained policies allow stakeholders to have a more precise level of control over who, when, and how their data is accessed. We propose a representation for policies and a mech- anism to control data access within a fully distributed system, creating a secure environment for data sharing. Our proposal provides guarantees against standard attacks, and ensures data-security across the network. We present and justify the goals, requirements, and a reference architecture for our proposal. We illustrate through an intuitive example how our proposal supports a typical data-sharing transaction. We also perform an analysis of the various potential attacks against this system, and how they are countered. In addition to this, we provide details of a proof-of-concept prototype which we used to refine our mechanism.
