Resolving Conflicting Privacy Policies in M-health based on Prioritization

Souad Sadki, Hanan El Bakkali
2016 Scalable Computing : Practice and Experience  
Thus, we present in this paper an approach to resolve the problem of conflicting privacy policies in e-health/m-health environments using AHP (Analytic Hierarchy Process) prioritization technique.  ...  However, due to multiplicity of mobile applications and the heterogeneity of actors involved in patient's care, conflicts among the privacy policies defined by the different actors can take place.  ...  User preferences Service Policy Permissions May-assertions: User gives permissions May-queries : Service asks for permissions Promises Will-queries: User asks for promises Will-assertions: Service  ...
