This page is intended to provide a focal point for the 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 to on this page and stored on GForge or other wikis. This page will provide sufficient content for project and document organization.
The scope of the project was defined by the answers to a set of scoping questions.
An introduction to Description Language, OWL and Protege: OWL, Protege and Security-Privacy Ontology
May 2011 Status Report: Security and Privacy Ontology: HL7 Working Group Meeting; May 2011
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.
This project uses the Protégé-OWL Editor for ontology editing and the Ontology Browser for Web-based ontology review.
The Protégé-OWL Editor operates on OWL 2 ontologies. It also handles SWRL. The Security and Privacy Ontology is currently edited with the Protégé 4.1 Release version.
The Ontology Browser provides read-only access to OWL 2 ontologies.
The current published draft of the Security and Privacy ontology will be available for download and hosted browsing as follows.
The Security and Privacy Ontology is distributed as a zip file containing an Ontologies directory, a set of OWL files representing the sub-ontologies, and an XML Catalog. The catalog supports redirection of ontology IRIs to the local file system. For example, http://www.hl7.org/ontologies/SecurityAndPrivacy.owl, which does not yet exist on the Web, is redirected to the SecurityAndPrivacy.owl file.
Current published draft of the Security-Privacy Ontology for peer review: [TBD Posted - November 1, 2011]
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:
- Visit the hosted Ontology Browser: Ontology Browser
- Optionally (but recommended), to view the Ontology as enriched by an OWL reasoner:
- Click Options (on the right, towards the top of the page).
- Select HermiT from the pulldown list labelled Reasoner (under Model on the right).
- Click Ontology Browser at the top left.
- 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.
- Click load.
- The brief usage guide may be helpful: Getting Started
|Sub-ontology||URL for hosted Ontology Browser||Notes|
The base HL7 Security and Privacy Ontology.
Intended to be normative once approved.
Represents ASTM example roles. Presently includes all ASTM structural roles. A representative subset will be selected and retained as discussed at the Orlando WGM.
Represents clinical conditions, starting with samples taken from the CSP-DAM.
Represents the HL7 RBAC Permission Catalog.
Represents obligations, starting with samples taken from the CSP-DAM.
Represents purposes of use, starting with samples taken from the CSP-DAM.
Imports all of the preceding sub-ontologies. Thus, enables browsing them together.
Represents an interrelated set of individuals collectively representing an access control request.
To support SWRL rules, adds several classes (whose names begin with *; note that the SWRL rules are not accessible via the Ontology Browser).
- 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://www.hl7.org/ontologies/ (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).
