Customized Views on Profiles in WebID-based Distributed Social Networks
Proceedings of 13th International Conference on Web Engineering Companion (ICWE2013 Companion)
WebID as an extensible and distributed identification approach enables users to globally authenticate themselves, connect to each other and manage their identity data at a self-defined place. Identity data stored in WebID profile documents can be protected from unauthorized access using appropriate access control methods. While existing methods are primarily about securing resources, they lack providing adequate mechanisms for controlling access to specific data within profiles. This paper presents our approach to create customized views on profiles in WebID-based distributed social networks. We introduce fine-grained personalized filters based on SPARQL templates and demonstrate their integration into an existing identity management platform.
