An Audit Logic for Accountability

IEEE Computer Society Press
Publication Date


We describe a policy language and implement its associated proof checking system. In our system, agents can distribute data along with usage policies in a decentralized architecture. Our language supports the specification of conditions and obligations, and also the possibility to refine policies. In our framework, the compliance with usage policies is not actively enforced. However, agents are accountable for their actions, and may be audited by an authority requiring justifications.
