Two or more parties typically establish a business relationship using a contract, but a large gap still exists between the provisions of contracts produced by lawyers and the details of computer security and performance addressed by technologists. Some contractual clauses address legal issues that technology can manage as well - the TrustCoM framework(More)
The paper makes two main contributions: (1) It presents experiences from using the CORAS language for security threat modelling to specify legal risk scenarios. These experiences are summarised in the form of requirements to a more expressive language providing specific support for the legal domain. (2) Its second main contribution is to present ideas(More)
To respond to market opportunities enterprises must interoperate with each other within dynamic virtual organizations (VO) when they do not control the required resources themselves. The TrustCoM project is developing a framework for trust, security and contract management for dynamic VO. The core contribution of the TrustCoM framework is its ability to(More)
Data protection legislation was originally defined for a context where personal information is mostly stored on centralized servers with limited connectivity or openness to 3rd party access. Currently, servers are connected to the Internet, where large amounts of personal information are continuously being exchanged as part of application transactions. This(More)
Radar is an essential element of state of the art advanced driver assistance systems. In the foreseeable future, radar will be an indispensable sensor for the use in affordable, automated driven cars. Simulation tools are the key for an efficient development process and hence will lower the price of sophisticated driver assistance systems. Therefore, the(More)
This work presents a pattern reconfigurable automotive antenna optimized for the 2.6GHz band reserved in Europe for the use of the Long Term Evolution (LTE) communication standard. Pattern reconfiguration is the ability of an antenna to switch between at least two fixed radiation patterns (states). In this work a special feeding network utilizing PIN diodes(More)
This paper presents an integrated method for risk and compliance assessment and its evaluation in a case study. The sophistication with which modern business is carried out and the unprecedented access to a global market means that businesses are exposed to diverse regulatory requirements in and across jurisdictions. Compliance with such requirements is(More)
This paper presents a compact pattern reconfigurable antenna for automotive mobile systems. The presented antenna operates in the 2.6 GHz LTE band in Europe and is capable of switching between four different directivity patterns. The generated main beams for these four states are shifted by 90° in azimuth in respect to one another. The antenna(More)
Since the recent introduction of new generic top-level domains (TLDs), a variety of new Internet domain names have become available for registration. These include new domain endings such as <.berlin>, <.club> or <.global>, which anyone can purchase. At the same time, an entire class of new TLD applications has arguably failed. Several well-known(More)
Many new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) are currently being added to the internet’s domain name system. It is, therefore, important to ask how we should conceptualize the legal aspects of this expansion. This article focuses on the legal position acquired by a successful applicant for a new gTLD. It examines several possible concepts and proposes a ‘gTLD(More)
