The problem of migrating sensitive information between systems in dynamic environments is increasingly important as distributed computing expands. A proposed policy-based approach provides controlled and secure transfer of user credentials and data across platforms. We propose a policy-driven data-protection system to address the inadequacies of current technological solutions in preserving the confidentiality and privacy of data while it migrates between platforms. More specifically, we describe our solution for securing credential migration that we're developing for productization.
