Policy Language: Enhancing JACIE for Data Ownership
Preserving data security is critical in collaborative world. Incorporating element such as control access policies in the applications themselves is one of the ways of hindering misconduct activities especially in data sharing applications. This paper proposes and approach of allowing data owners to set their own data access policies before sharing the data with others. This work involves the study on policy languages, event-condition-action (ECA) paradigm and data handling access policies. Then, the access control policies which commonly written separately from the implementation code using ECA paradigm are designed as a set of language constructs. In order to realize the existence of such a policy language, an existing scripting language, JACIE (Java-based Authoring language for Collaborative Interactive Environments) is chosen since it can support ECA paradigm with its template style and event-based programming features. Enhancing JACIE will involve a major extension to its back-end compiler code, but it allows non-expert users to express the common access control policy idioms.
