Preserving privacy in shared provenance data

Lookup NU author(s): Professor Paolo MissierORCiD, Dr Jeremy Bryans



Provenance management still lacks robust models for shar- ing provenance data between multiple parties while keeping parts of it private to the owner. This limits the potential for provenance dissemination, which is a critical step in enabling data sharing amongst partners with limited a priori mutual trust. In turn, this has a negative impact on data-intensive science and its associated research publication repositories, on audit tasks, as well as on increasingly common collabora- tive dynamic coalitions scenarios. We propose a method for preserving privacy by creating abstractions over provenance graphs, we apply it to provenance sharing, and illustrate it on a health care case study.
