An initial roadmap towards the holistic protection of intellectual property (IP) in collaborative modeling scenarios based on the adaptation of Cryptography, Access-control and Digital Rights Management mechanisms
We present a novel robust hashing mechanism for models. Robust hashing algorithms (i.e. hashing algorithms that generate similar outputs from similar input data) are useful as a key building block in intellectual property protection, authenticity assessment and fast comparison and retrieval solutions
Read about our access-control mechanisms for models. We rely on a new domain-specific language tailored to the definition of RBAC rules on models and on its enforcement thanks to the automatic generation of security compliant (virtual) views.
We propose the integration of digital watermarking techniques in the model-driven engineering development lifecycle as way to protect the intellectual property of your modeling artefacts in collaborative modeling scenarios
