The paper titled Exploring the Enforcement of Private, Dynamic Policies on Medical Workflow Execution by Christopher A. Esterhuyse, Tim Muller, Thomas van Binsbergen, and Adam S. Z. Belloum was accepted at 18th IEEE eScience Conference 2022: Democratizing Science.
We report on the ideas and experiences of adapting Brane, a workflow execution framework, for use cases involving medical data exchange and processing. These use cases impose new requirements on the system to enforce policies encoding safety properties, ranging from access control to legal regulations pertaining to data privacy. Our approach emphasizes users' control over the extent to which they cooperate in distributed execution, at the cost of revealing information about their policies.
