Abstract

Data collection, access and usage are essential for many forms of collaborative research. E-Health represents one area with much to gain by sharing of data across organisational boundaries. In such contexts, security and access control are essential to protect the often complex, privacy and information governance concerns of associated stakeholders. In this paper we argue that semantic technologies have unique benefits for specification and enforcement of security policies that cross organisation boundaries. We illustrate this through a case study based around the International Niemann-Pick Disease (NPD) Registry (www.inpdr.org) - which typifies many current e-Health security processes and policies. We show how approaches based upon ontology-based policy specification overcome many of the current security challenges facing the development of such systems and enhance access control by leveraging existing security information associated with clinical collaborators.
