National actions

Lise (ANR )

Participants : Daniel Le Métayer, Eduardo Mazza, Manuel Maarek.

The Lise ( ) project started in 2008 and is funded by the ANR sesur programme. Lise is coordinated by Licit and invloves the Amazones and Pop Art Inria project-teams, the Law Faculty of Versailles Saint-Quentin, the Law Faculty of Caen, Verimag and Supelec .

One of the motivations of the Lise project is the fact that, as observed by several authors, software quality and patterns of security frauds are directly related to legal liability patterns. But the precise definition of the expected functionalities of software systems is quite a challenge, not to mention the use of such definition as a basis for a liability agreement. Taking up this challenge is precisely the objective of Lise . To achieve this goal, the project studies liability issues both from the legal and the technical points of view with the aim to put forward methods (1) to define liability in a precise and unambiguous way and (2) to establish liability in case of disagreement.

Fluor (ANR )

Participants : Daniel Le Métayer, Guillaume Piolle.

The Fluor ( ) project started in 2008 and is funded by the ANR sesur programme. Fluor is coordinated by ENSTB and involves the CNRS (IODE ), Inria (Licit ), the LIUPPA (University of Pau), SWID and the University of Polynésie Française.

The Fluor project aims at protecting corporate documents circulating within companies. More precisely, the objective of the project is to unify information flow models and usage control models and to analyse the legal issues raised by the use of these documents. Emphasis will be put by Licit on the specification of obligations within organizations and the associated risk analysis.

Persopolis (Competitivity poles Systematic and TES )

Participants : Daniel Le Métayer, Julien Le Clainche.

Persopolis (2008-2010) is a project funded by the Competitivity poles Systematic and TES . The coordinator is OCS (Oberthur Card Systems) and the other partners of the project are CEV , ENSI Caen, IAE Caen, the Law Faculty of Caen, Inria (Licit ), NBSTech and Trusted Logic .

The smart card life cycle includes, before delivery to the end-user, a personalization phase which consists in loading on the memory of the card data which is specific to the user (typically name, credentials, cetificates...). This personalization phase, which is highly critical, is generally conducted in the secured premises of the card manufacturer or subcontracted to a third party (“personalizer”) offering high security guarantees. In order to favour the deployment of service cards managed by local authorities (e.g. city council, social services, employment agencies...) it is necessary to reconsider this centralized personalization process while maintaining the required security guarantees. The objective of the Persopolis project is to define the technical and legal requirements for the personalization of smart cards in such “open” contexts. Emphasis is put on the management of personal data and the associated liability issues.
