Legal compliance-by-design is the process of developing a software system that processes personal data in such a way that its ability to meet specific legal provisions is ascertained. In this paper, we describe techniques to automatically check the compliance of the security policies of a system against formal rules derived from legal provisions by re-using available tools for security policy verification.

Abstract

Legal compliance-by-design is the process of developing a software system that processes personal data in such a way that its ability to meet specific legal provisions is ascertained. In this paper, we describe techniques to automatically check the compliance of the security policies of a system against formal rules derived from legal provisions by re-using available tools for security policy verification. We also show the practical viability of our approach by reporting the experimental results of a prototype for checking compliance of realistic and synthetic policies against the European Data Protection Directive (EU DPD).
