Updatable Security Views

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Security views are a flexible and effective mechanism for controlling access to confidential information. Rather than allowing untrusted users to access source data directly, they are instead provided with a restricted view, from which all confidential information has been removed. The program that generates the view effectively embodies a confidentiality policy for the underlying source data. However, this approach has a significant drawback: it prevents users from updating the data in the view. To address the "View update problem" in general, a number of bidirectional languages have been proposed.
