A metadata model for data centric security

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Data-sharing agreements across organisations are often used to derive security policies to enforce the access, usage and routing or data across different trust and administrative domains. The data exchanged is usually annotated with metadata to describe its meaning in different applications and contexts, which may be used by the enforcement points of such data-sharing policies. In this paper, we present a metadata model for describing data-centric security, i.e. any security information that may be used to annotate data. Such metadata may be used to describe attributes of the data as well as their security requirements. We demonstrate an applicability scenario of our model in the context of organisations sharing scientific data.
