Policy Auditing in Data Exchange Systems.

Speakers: Paola Grosso, Xin Zhou, Reggie Cushing
Co-authors: Ralph Koning, Adam Belloum, Sander Klous, Tom van Engers, Cees de Laat

Abstract: Digital Data Marketplaces allow to securely share data between competing parties. To maintain data sovereignty in such environments we translate market transactions into audited, secure network connections which enforce policies and track data exchanges.
This challenge spans many layers from legal, where contracts about data sharing are formulated, down to network layers where fine-grained policy enforcement and tracking can take place. In this demo we focus on two aspects of the data market place:
  1. the network and its role in translating market transactions into secure network connections for data transactions, and
  2. the auditing plane that spans multiple domains and maintains an audit trail of the activities of the involved domains to validate the correct execution of the agreed upon transactions.
