    In order to provide secure healthcare informatics systems, three different security levels need to be considered: 1) secure healthcare applications to provide user authentication and access control mechanism to healthcare applications, components, and objects.; 2) secure database to provide the protection of the database against unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or distinction of healthcare inf...

  • Questionnaires: a framework using mobile code for component-based tele-exams

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):144 - 149
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (160 KB)

    Applications for computer supported cooperative work can gain from component models and frameworks. The framework for “questionnaires”, which is described in the paper offers a pattern to distribute artifacts to a group of receivers. We use mobile code to ensure highest flexibility and provide hooks to be able to collaborate with local applications on the receiver side. The questionnai... View full abstract»

  • More than shared artifacts: collaboration via shared presence in MUDs

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):182 - 189
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    The paper argues that MUDs (multi-user domains) and the Web have complementary strengths, and that limiting our support of collaboration to either one by itself is simply wrong. The Web is about sharing artifacts, passing them around, and sometimes working together on them simultaneously. The MUDs are about shared presence, with people interacting with each other and their tools, in a common envir... View full abstract»

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):118 - 125
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (64 KB)

    We describe our concept of an active Web, namely how we design the software architecture of interactive cooperative applications based on the WWW. An active Web includes agents able to use the services offered by WWW clients and servers. In an active Web, both users and agents can interoperate using a set of basic services for communication and synchronization. The active Web we describe here is b... View full abstract»

    A growing share of all software development project work is being done by geographically distributed teams. To satisfy, shorter product design cycles, expert team members for a development project may need to be recruited globally. Yet to avoid extensive travelling or replacement costs, distributed project work is preferred. Current generation software engineering tools and associated systems, pro... View full abstract»

    The paper describes the architecture and concept of operation of a Framework for Adaptive Process Modeling and Execution (FAME). The research addresses the absence of robust methods for supporting the software process management life cycle. FAME employs a novel, model based approach in providing automated support for different activities in the software development life cycle, including project de... View full abstract»

    Proposals for multicast security that have been published so far are complex, often require trust in network components or are inefficient. We propose a series of novel approaches for achieving scalable security in IP multicast, providing privacy and authentication on a group-wide basis. They can be employed to efficiently secure multi party applications where members of highly dynamic groups of a... View full abstract»

    This paper proposes a new model of a distributed DBMS based on the mobile agent programming paradigm instead of the client/server one. The paper investigates the suitability of the mobile agents approach to the problem of integrating a collection of local DBMS into a single heterogeneous large-scale distributed DBMS and it presents a model of distributed transactions as a set of mobile agents, ill...

    The paper surveys the possible coordination models for mobile agent applications and evaluates them in the context of a widely distributed application in the area of WWW information retrieval. The analysis outlines the advantages and the drawbacks of each coordination model and shows how reactivity of the coordination media can provide the degree of flexibility and adaptability required by mobile ...

  • A component approach to embedding awareness and conversation

    Publication Year: 1998, Page(s):82 - 89
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (72 KB)

    Most approaches to real time collaboration and awareness involve the use of special applications to connect users to each other either peer-to-peer or via a central server. At Lotus we have built a toolkit of small components-Java applets based on NSTP-that can be embedded in Web pages or Lotus Notes documents. While each small component incorporates just one aspect of collaboration, they can be w... View full abstract»

    Mobility is a mechanism to manage accessibility dependencies. As such, it is a coordination mechanism in the interaction of agents, users, and information. The Linda-like coordination language, Mobile Object Spaces, is used to express coordination of entities. Its primitives support the basic operations for coordination by mobility. Higher order coordination structures can be captured as coordinat... View full abstract»

    Mobile agents have attracted wide interest in distributed applications because of their flexibility and capacity of adapting to very different scenarios, a common situation over the Internet. The rapid growth of this area has forced to focus more on rapid prototyping than on other aspects that are still only partially faced. The paper addresses two main concepts connected with mobile agents: local... View full abstract»

    Difficulties with Web based full text information retrieval (IR) systems include spurious matches, manually intensive document sifting, and the absence of communication or coordination between users. To address these difficulties, we introduce the Annotate! system which enables document annotations, and captures global usage history. Annotate! provides improved data and metadata clues to guide the... View full abstract»

    Companies that operate in extremely volatile markets are often confronted with the challenge of a very narrow window of opportunity for developing and commercializing new products. Not only must these companies have a very short time-to-market, but they must also utilize all available information to create and maintain a competitive advantage. Today, success in gaining and maintaining a competitiv... View full abstract»

    With the current proliferation of the net based infrastructure, electronic commerce is becoming more and more a type of collaborative work. Net persistent objects can be created and used. We provide a proposal for an architecture where participants (partners) are able to create, work with and store objects on the net. They are enabled to define partner specific business rules with respect to a wel... View full abstract»

    Coordinating distributed processes, especially engineering and software design processes, has been a research topic for some time now. Several approaches have been published that aim at coordinating large projects in general, and large software development processes specifically. However most of these approaches focus on the technical part of the design process and omit management activities like ... View full abstract»

    Coordinating distributed software development projects becomes more difficult, as software becomes more complex, team sizes and organisational overheads increase, and software components are sourced from disparate places. We describe the development of a range of software tools to support coordination of such projects. Techniques we use include asynchronous and semi synchronous editing, software p...
