Coco Cloud aims at allowing the cloud users to securely and privately share their data in the cloud. This will increase the trust of users in the cloud services and thus increase their widespread adoption with consequent benefits for the users and in general for digital economy.
To facilitate the writing, understanding, analysis, management, enforcement and dissolution of data sharing agreements; going from high level descriptions (close to natural language) to system enforceable data usage policies.
To consider the most appropriate enforcing mechanisms depending on the underlying infrastructure and context for enforcing data usage policies.
To address key challenges for legally compliant data sharing in the cloud. By taking a “compliance by design” approach, the project places an early emphasis on understanding and incorporating legal and regulatory requirements into the data sharing agreements.
