Competing technologies address the challenge to provide dynamic multi-stakeholder access tailored to fit the context of the request for data and the identity of the requester. This so-called fine-grained-access control can be utilised for disruptive governance technology allowing for low-level access to governance data. The objective of this study is to identify the most suiting technology for this context.
The study will compare the features and provide a SWOT analysis of different technologies providing fine grained control of access to data stored in relational databases. The context of the evaluation is self-service access to governance data, as described in e.g. . The technologies to be compared are the Oracle Virtual Private Database (VPD) and the in-house developed Secure SQL Server (SecSQL) system.
