Abstract

Enterprises operate in a global economy with their operations dispersed across internal processes and external partners. Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems play a significant role in modern product development and management. There are multiple stages in product lifecycle that streamline by sharing data among PLM entities. Shared data may contain highly sensitive information such as trade secrets, intellectual property, private organizational or personal information. In large enterprise systems, it is difficult to understand and track data dissemination. Data sharing across global partners complicates and magnifies the problem further. The effect of shared data being leaked is one of the key risks. Existing approaches ensure security within the domain of an organization and don’t address protection in a decentralized environment. We propose an approach for secure data dissemination using the Active Bundle scheme. This approach enables organizations to securely share information in their PLM steps and protects it throughout the product lifecycle.
