  • Paper: Access Control on Shared Ontologies
  • Authors: Georgi PAVLOV
  • Publication: IBIS Interoperability in Business Information Systems (ISSN:1862-6378)
  • Date published: August 2009


Ontologies formalize knowledge from different domains. It is a common technique to align ontologies using mappings to common or reference ontologies to produce a federated ontology network.

Federated knowledge means sharing and as knowledge is the most valuable property, sharing it also raises the question of the ability to introduce some constraints on its usage.

Some ontology languages have built-in mechanisms to integrate knowledge from other ontologies by means of the World Wide Web and thus leverage on the security mechanisms that can be setup in the network. However some recent research and development activities reveal the opportunity of more fine-grained modularity of the managed ontology knowledge and thus present different challenges to the security aspect of the knowledge sharing.

This paper explores the new dimension of security management techniques in the perspective of knowledge sharing and presents a proposed approach in the context of a concrete case study.


This paper was presented during the "Papers and Contributions" parallel session, at Semantic Week 2009.
