January 12 Formalizing Privacy Laws

Speaker: Eric Peifung Lam

Abstract: I will talk about our ongoing work on formalizing privacy laws such as HIPAA. For training purposes and to facilitate analysis of a privacy law, it is often desirable to set up a small model that exhibits most of the interesting features of the law. In our current work, we formalize the behavior of an organization operating under the privacy law using Datalog, a fragment of first-order logic language. We seek to understand if there exists a "minimal" model that characterizes the “interesting” behavior of an organization under the law, such as all the actions that are permitted or prohibited by the law. I will talk about our setup and some current results we have obtained.
