Abstract

This book documents the findings and recommendations of research into the question of how IT laws should develop on the understanding that today’s information and communication technology is shaped by cloud computing, which lies at the foundations of contemporary and future IT as its most widespread enabler. In particular, this study develops on both a comparative and an interdisciplinary axis, i.e. comparatively by examining EU and US law, and on an interdisciplinary level by dealing with law and IT. Focusing on the study of data protection and privacy in cloud environments, the book examines three main challenges on the road towards more efficient cloud computing regulation: understanding the reasons behind the development of diverging legal structures and schools of thought on IT law; ensuring privacy and security in digital clouds; converging regulatory approaches to digital clouds in the hope of more harmonised IT laws in the future.Der Band dokumentiert die Ergebnisse und Empfehlungen einer Analyse zur Frage, wie sich IT-Gesetze entwickeln sollten, unter der Prämisse, dass die heutige und zukünftige Informations- und Kommunikationstechnologie durch Cloud Computing geprägt ist. Insbesondere entwickelt sich diese Untersuchung auf einer vergleichenden und einer interdisziplinären Achse, d.h. als Rechtsvergleich zwischen EU und US-Recht und interdisziplinär zwischen Recht und IT. Die Arbeit konzentriert sich auf den Schwerpunkt vom Datenschutz und Datensicherheit in Cloud-Umgebungen und analysiert drei Hauptherausforderungen auf dem Weg zu einer effizienteren Cloud-Computing-Regulierung: Verständnis der Gründe für die Entwicklung divergierender Rechtsordnungen und Denkschulen zum IT-Recht; Gewährleistung der Privatsphäre und Datenschutz in der Cloud; konvergierende Regulierungsansätze für die Cloud in der Hoffnung auf eine harmonisierte Landschaft von IT-Gesetzen in der Zukunft.

Abstract

It is investigated how biologically-inspired optimisation methods can be used to compute alignments between ontologies. Independent of particular similarity metrics, the developed techniques demonstrate anytime behaviour and high scalability. Due to the inherent parallelisability of these population-based algorithms it is possible to exploit dynamically scalable cloud infrastructures - a step towards the provisioning of Alignment-as-a-Service solutions for future semantic applications.

Abstract

Providers and consumers have to deal with variants of software services, which are alternative instances of a services design, implementation, deployment, or operation. This work develops the service feature modeling language to represent software service variants and a suite of methods to select variants for development or delivery. An evaluation describes the systems implemented to make use of service feature modeling and its application to two real-world use cases.

Abstract

This book therefore proposes a new philosophy of Grid usage: provide virtual computing environments for Grid users. The new methodology could solve the problems currently encountered by Grid computing. It supports desired computing environments for users, which provide customized hardware/software configuration, QoS assurance and manageable functionality. This philosophy also liberates resource providers from the various onerous tasks of resource management.

Abstract

Small and Medium size Companies (SME) are facing threats on a daily basis. Even if 94% of German SMEs are regularly backing up their data, only 50% use a different datacenter provider for protecting critical business processes with a disaster recovery system. The goal of this thesis is it to describe a new method for providing a disaster recovery system within the Cloud.

Abstract

Zunehmend greift medizinische Forschung auf Daten aus der Versorgung zurück. Diese ‚Sekundärnutzung‘ von Behandlungsdaten bringt jedoch zahlreiche Rechtsfragen mit sich. Sozial- und Gesundheitsdaten gehören zu den intimsten Informationen über einen Menschen. Mit dem vorliegenden Rechtsgutachten steht erstmals eine detaillierte Übersicht über die spezifischen rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen für die Sekundärnutzung medizinischer Daten in den einzelnen Bundesländern zur Verfügung, die auch jeweils die unterschiedliche Trägerschaft und Rechtsform der behandelnden Institution berücksichtigt. Die Analyse gibt Forschern und anderen Akteuren im Gesundheitsbereich Orientierung beim rechtskonformen Umgang mit medizinischen Behandlungsdaten. Das Buch enthält darüber hinaus ein ergänzendes Gutachten, das die rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen für die Sekundärnutzung der über die elektronische Gesundheitskarte nach § 291a SGB V verwalteten Daten darstellt.

Abstract

This work addresses the inherent lack of control and trust in Multi-Party Systems at the examples of the Database-as-a-Service (DaaS) scenario and public Distributed Hash Tables (DHTs). In the DaaS field, it is shown how confidential information in a database can be protected while still allowing the external storage provider to process incoming queries. For public DHTs, it is shown how these highly dynamic systems can be managed by facilitating monitoring, simulation, and self-adaptation.

Abstract

research agenda for e-Government. When e-Government was first conceived, it was designed upon basic technologies where the emphasis was only on the simple display of government information for citizens to read. Nowadays, e-Government design comprises many complicated modules such as upload and download consoles, two-way interaction consoles between citizens and government agents, integrated government business processes presenting the whole of government, and it does not depend solely on technology. The complexity of e-Government has now evolved to include political, cultural, economic, social and technical dimensions. Bringing all these difficult aspects together is so complicated that it needs carefully planned strategies informed by local contextual characteristics. Rather than giving formulaic definitions and conceptual standpoints on many aspects of e-Government, as is the case in many e-Government publications, this book will explore the frontiers of global knowledge value chains by discussing current and future dimensions of e-Government. For example, the book discusses the concept of data governance by exploring how actual opening up of government data can be achieved, especially in a developing world context. Further, the book posits that opening government data should be followed by the opening up of government business processes in order to peddle the concept of accountability and responsiveness. Much text on data governance has concentrated on articulating the basic definitions surrounding this concept. Another very important topic explored in this book is regarding how the concept of decolonisation can be extended to e-Government by providing practical examples as to how researchers in the developing world can contribute to the advancement of e-Government as a scientific field of enquiry and guide its implementation, thereof. Decolonisation is advocated for in e-Government research so that there is a balance in the inclusion of the Afrocentric knowledge into e-Government advancement other than over-reliance on the Euro-, Asia- and America-centric knowledge value chains (Mbembe 2015). As e-Government is a very expensive undertaking, the issue of funding has excluded African countries and a majority of the developing world from implementing e-Government. Despite funding being a critical cornerstone of e-Government development, there is a dearth of information on this topic. Therefore, this book provides a chapter which discusses traditional and innovative ways of funding e-Government design and implementation which can go a long way in improving e-Government penetration into the developing world. Further, the book explores how intelligent e-Government applications can be designed, especially in resource-constrained countries. A couple of emerging technology innovations such as fog computing and intelligent information technology are explored within the realm of e-Government design.

Abstract

Two aspects of anthropogenic impacts on the atmosphere are investigated using means of numerical weather prediction. A case study is conducted to estimate the impact of such artificial clouds on the incoming solar radiation at the Earth's surface with special regard to photovoltaic power production. Furthermore, simulations are performed to assess the efficacy of injecting particles into the Arctic troposphere with the aim of modifying cirrus clouds for counteracting global warming.
