This paper describes security issues for federated database management systems set up for managing distributed, heterogeneous and autonomous multilevel databases. It builds on our previous work in multilevel secure distributed database management systems and on the results of others’ work in federated database systems. In particular, we define a multilevel secure federated database system and discuss issues on heterogeneity, autonomy, security policy and architecture.
