Provenance

Provenance is metadata describing the origin, derivation or history of some data. Pervasive support for provenance is being proposed in several contexts, ranging from databases and scientific workflows to system configurations to intelligence gathering and analysis. Provenance has been a major research interest in Edinburgh over the past 10 years. This page collects summaries and links to our work.

Provenance and Security

 

Provenance may enable interesting new capabilities, such as making the impact of changes to critical system configurations explicit, or support new kinds of history- or provenance-conscious security policies. However, pervasive collection of provenance also introduces new risks to security and privacy of users of such systems. Our research aims to understand the benefits and tame the risks, so that provenance can be used safely without compromising security or privacy.
