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.
A common problem when modeling software systems is the lack of support to specify how to enforce privacy concerns in data models. In this post, we propose a profile to define and enforce privacy concerns in UML class diagrams. Models annotated with our profile can be used in model-driven methodologies to generate privacy-aware applications.
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
