To encourage data providers to publish a maximum of data on the Web, we propose a mechanism to define lightweight access control policies for graph stores. Influenced by the steep growth of the mobile web, our Linked Data access control framework features context-aware control policies. The proposed framework is exclusively grounded on standard Semantic Web(More)
Access control is a recognized open issue when interacting with RDF using HTTP methods. In literature, authentication and authorization mechanisms either introduce undesired complexity such as SPARQL and ad-hoc policy languages, or rely on basic access control lists, thus resulting in limited policy expressiveness. In this paper we show how the Shi3ld(More)
In the Social Web, the users are invited to publish a lot of personal information. These data can be easily retrieved, and sometimes reused, without providing the users with fine-grained access control mechanisms able to restrict the access to their profiles, and data. In this paper, we present an access control model for the Social Semantic Web. Our model(More)
The rapidly growing commercial interest in Linked Data raises the prospect of “Linked Data spam”, which we define as “deliberately misleading information (data and links) published as Linked Data, with the goal of creating financial gain for the publisher”. Compared to conventional technologies affected by spamming, e.g. email and blogs, spammers targeting(More)
Shi3ld is a context-aware authorization framework for protecting SPARQL endpoints. It assumes the definition of access policies using RDF and SPARQL, and the specification of named graphs to identify the protected resources. These assumptions lead to the incapability for users who are not familiar with such languages and technologies to use the(More)
The Mobile Web is evolving fast and mobile access to the Web of Data is gaining momentum. Interlinked RDF resources consumed from portable devices need proper adaptation to the context in which the action is performed. This paper introduces PRISSMA (Presentation of Resources for Interoperable Semantic and Shareable Mobile Adaptability), a domain-independent(More)
We present PRISSMA, a context-aware presentation layer for Linked Data. PRISSMA extends the Fresnel vocabulary with the notion of mobile context. Besides, it includes an algorithm that determines whether the sensed context is compatible with some context declarations. The algorithm finds optimal error-tolerant subgraph isomorphisms between RDF graphs using(More)
