Authorization Framework for Medical Data

  title={Authorization Framework for Medical Data},
  author={Geetha Madadevaiah and Prasad Rv and Amogh Hiremath and Michel Dumontier and Andre Dekker},
  journal={International Journal of Database Management Systems},
In this paper, the authors describe an approach for sharing sensitive medical data with the consent of the data owner. The framework builds on the advantages of the Semantic Web technologies and makes it secure and robust for sharing sensitive information in a controlled environment. The framework uses a combination of Role-Based and Rule-Based Access Policies to provide security to a medical data repository as per the FAIR guidelines. A lightweight ontologywas developed, to collect consent…

Towards knowledge level privacy and security using RDF/RDFS and RBAC

This paper presents a model, to enforce knowledge security/access by leveraging knowledge sources (currently focused on RDF) with the RBAC model, and filters out knowledge by means of binary permissions on the knowledge source, providing each user with a different view of the knowledge sources.

RDF metadata for XML access control

An access control framework that provides flexible security granularity for XML documents and allows to express and enforce access control on XML trees and their associations is presented.

A Privacy Preference Ontology (PPO) for Linked Data

This paper proposes a lightweight vocabulary — on top of WAC — called the Privacy Preference Ontology (PPO) that enables users to create fine-grained privacy preferences for their data.

A View Based Access Control Model for SPARQL

A new security model is defined which follows the traditional approach of creating security views, which has long been used by SQL database administrators and first logically distributes RDF data into SParQL views and then it defines security rules regulating SPARQL access to views.

SWRL-based Access Policies for Linked Data

This work describes the concept of a Policy-enabled Linked Data Server (PeLDS) obeying user-defined access policies for the stored information, which supports configurationfree distributed authentication and a newly developed compact notation for the Semantic Web Rule Language.

From XML to RDF: Syntax, Semantics, Security, and Integrity (Invited Paper)

This paper evaluates security methods for eXtensible Markup Language (XML) and the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and identifies two promising research directions to extend the XML model with semantics, which aims to associate XML documents with metadata supporting Web-based applications.

Interoperability and FAIRness through a novel combination of Web technologies

A set of resource-oriented Web design patterns for data discovery, accessibility, transformation, and integration that can be implemented by any general- or special-purpose repository as a means to assist users in finding and reusing their data holdings are explored.

Ontology based Access Control Model for Healthcare System in Cloud Computing

This paper proposes an Ontology Based Access Control (OBAC) Model that can address the permitted access control among the service providers and users.

Framework for the Semantic Web: An RDF Tutorial

The Resource Description Framework (RDF) provides a data model that supports fast integration of data sources by bridging semantic differences and can be used as a general framework for data exchange on the Web.

Querying semantic web data with SPARQL

Some of the main results about the theory of RDF and SPARQL are surveyed putting emphasis on some research opportunities for the database community.
