The paper “Securing Access to Healthcare Data with Context-aware Policies” by Evgenia Psarra, Ioannis Patiniotakis, Yiannis Verginadis, Dimitris Apostolou and Gregoris Mentzas from ICCS was presented at the 11th International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications (IISA-2020). The paper focused on context-aware security of healthcare data. It reported on the development of a tool that enables a user to create and edit a context-aware security model for creating and enforcing access control policies for electronic health records (EHRs). Access control policies are to be enforced as part of two different sequential authorization paradigms that will be employed for achieving high levels of security controls. These paradigms are the Attribute-based Access Control (ABAC), which permits or denies access and/or grants or not editing rights to encrypted EHRs and the Attribute-based Encryption (ABE), which handles the way sensitive data should be decrypted, so as to edit functionalities for creating context-aware access policies (ABAC and ABE).
The 11th International Conference on Information, Intelligence, Systems and Applications (IISA-2020) was held virtually on 15th – 17th July 2020. IISA-2020 was technically co-sponsored by IEEE, the University of Piraeus and the University of Thessaly. IISA-2020 Proceedings will be published in IEEE Explore
