Safeguarding Personal Data using Rights Management in Distributed Applications

  title={Safeguarding Personal Data using Rights Management in Distributed Applications},
  author={Adolf Hohl and Alf Zugenmaier},
Privacy includes the right to determine the use of personal information after it has been released. Some compliance solutions have been proposed already. However, they are usually monolithic systems operating only within one database system or requiring a customized infrastructure. This paper explores the possibility to use an off-the-shelf document rights management platform to enable enforcement of usage policies. First experiences from a building a demonstration application are encouraging.

Security in Pervasive Computing Calling for new Security Principles
The paper argues that the continuation of current security practices is not possible and sketches an ideal state in which security is not achieved by prohibiting everything not explicitly allowed, but by monitoring, evidence gathering and reconciliation.
