—We introduce PSCEL, a new language for developing autonomic software components capable of adapting their behaviour to react to external stimuli and environment changes. The application logic generating the computational behaviour of systems components is defined in a procedural style, by the programming constructs, while the adaptation logic is defined in(More)
The importance of the exchange of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) between hospitals has been recognized by governments and institutions. Due to the sensitivity of data exchanged, only mature standards and implementations can be chosen to operate. This exchange process is of course under the control of the patient, who decides who has the rights to access(More)
The advent of large-scale, complex computing systems has dramatically increased the difficulties of securing accesses to systems' resources. To ensure confidentiality and integrity, the exploitation of access control mechanisms has thus become a crucial issue in the design of modern computing systems. Among the different access control approaches proposed(More)
To tackle the complexity of autonomic computing systems it is crucial to provide methods supporting their systematic and princi-pled development. Using the PSCEL language, autonomic systems can be described in terms of the constituent components and their reciprocal interactions. The computational behaviour of components is defined in a procedural style, by(More)
Policy-based software architectures are nowadays widely exploited to regulate different aspects of systems' behavior, such as access control, resource usage, and adaptation. Several languages and technologies have been proposed as, e.g., the standard XACML. However, developing real-world systems using such approaches is still a tricky task, being them(More)
