Introduction

This page provides a focal point for the HL7 Security and Privacy Ontology Project: a hub for connecting to its artifacts, discussions, status and links to related projects and work groups. Most of the technical content for this project will be contained within its artifacts which will be linked via this page and stored on GForge.

Standard

HL7 Version 3 Standard: Security and Privacy Ontology, Release 1

Scope

The scope of the project was defined by the answers to a set of scoping questions.

Project Documentation

Approved Project Scope Statement

Presentations

An introduction to Description Logic, OWL and Protégé:

Overview and Status:

Working Presentations:

Ontology Development Methodology

This methodology has been derived from a guideused by the Protégé team and demonstrates a basic model development process that shares some steps with HL7 HDF. The draft was written from the standpoint of developing an ontology from scratch.

Use Cases

Access Control Based on Category of Action

Access Control Based on Category of Object

Access Control Based on Category of Structural Role

Access Control Based on Category of Functional Role

Access Control Based on Multiple Role Values

Enable Design of Access Control System

Facilitate an Automated Decision Function

Tooling

This project uses the Protégé-OWL Editor for ontology editing and the Ontology Browser for Web-based ontology review.

Protégé-OWL Editor

The Protégé-OWL Editor operates on OWL 2 ontologies. It also handles SWRL. The Security and Privacy Ontology is currently edited with the Protégé 4.3 Release version.

Ontology Browser

The Ontology Browser provides read-only access to OWL 2 ontologies.

The Ontology

The current published version of the Security and Privacy Ontology will be available for download and hosted browsing as follows. When reviewing, please take note of explanatory comments among the annotations.

Downloads

HL7 Version 3 Standard: Security and Privacy Ontology, Release 1

The Ontologies zip file contains an Ontologies directory, which in turn contains a set of OWL files representing the sub-ontologies: Ontologies.zip

Hosted Browsing

Apelon is voluntarily hosting the Ontology Browser to facilitate peer review of the Security and Privacy Ontology. Please respect that purpose.

To browse the current published draft ontology using a Web browser:

  1. Visit the hosted Ontology Browser: Ontology Browser
  2. Optionally (but recommended), to view the Ontology as enriched by an OWL reasoner:
    1. Click Options (on the right, towards the top of the page).
    2. Select HermiT from the pulldown list labelled Reasoner (under Model on the right).
    3. Click Ontology Browser at the top left.
  3. Enter the URL for an OWL file in the box labeled Specify the physical location of your ontology. URLs for the Security and Privacy Ontology are shown in the table below. Suggested entries are highlighted in yellow and gold.
  4. Click load.

Hints:

  • Click Help (at top right) to for further details. See especially Getting started under Documentation.
  • The Ontology Browser generally works well when viewing ontology contents, but there are occasional glitches loading or switching ontologies. Try clearing and reloading ontologies (see below) or restarting your Web browser.
  • Click the red box with the white X (near top left) to clear all ontologies.
  • Click Ontology Browser (at top left) to return to the home page, where you can load ontologies.

Further instances to be developed.

To support SWRL rules, adds several classes (whose names begin with *; note that the SWRL rules are not accessible via the Ontology Browser).

Notes:

  • An Ontologies directory is hosted on the same virtual server as the Ontology Browser. The URLs in the preceding table will direct the hosted Ontology Browser to OWL files on its local host (not your local host).
  • Eventually, HL7 ontologies may be hosted at a well known location such as http://hl7.org/ontology/ (which doesn't currently exist). In anticipation, the IRIs for sub-ontologies and other elements of the Security and Privacy Ontology embody that location. Unlike Protégé, the current Ontology Browser software provides no way to redirect such IRIs. Therefore, we direct the Ontology Browser to the hosted files (having manually edited OWL imports accordingly within the hosted files).
