I'm pleased to announce that our paper entitled 'Blockchain based resource governance for decentralized web environments', which was co-authored by Davide Basile, Claudio Di Ciccio, Valerio Goretti, has been published in Frontiers in Blockchain, Volume 6.
In this paper, we extend the state of the art by proposing a resource governance conceptual framework, entitled ReGov, that facilitates usage control in decentralized web environments. We subsequently demonstrate how our framework can be instantiated by combining blockchain and trusted execution environments. Through blockchain technologies, we record policies expressing the usage conditions associated with resources and monitor their compliance. Our instantiation employs trusted execution environments to enforce said policies, inside data consumers’ devices. We evaluate the framework instantiation through a detailed analysis of requirments derived from a data market motivating scenario, as well as an assessment of the security, privacy, and affordability aspects of our proposal.
