City on the Sky: Flexible, Secure Data Sharing on the Cloud

Sharing data from various sources and of diverse kinds, and fusing them together for sophisticated analytics and mash-up applications are emerging trends, and are prerequisites for grand visions such as that of cyber-physical systems enabled smart cities. Cloud infrastructure can enable such data sharing both because it can scale easily to an arbitrary volume of data and computation needs on demand, as well as because of natural collocation of diverse such data sets within the infrastructure. However, in order to convince data owners that their data are well protected while being shared among cloud users, the cloud platform needs to provide flexible mechanisms for the users to express the constraints (access rules) subject to which the data should be shared, and likewise, enforce them effectively.
