“Semantic Web technology will be a key tool in the development of a standard policy language for sharing information between agencies, countries, and organizations. Research conducted by a team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) will help the U.S. Air Force exchange resources and data securely, as well as adapt to new or changed policy dynamically without modifying code. “We are creating for the first time a policy interchange language or Interlingua grounded in Semantic Web technologies that will enable a secure exchange of information between entities using different languages to express their security constraints,” says MIT’s Lalana Kagal. Interlingua will use translations to capture key functions and characteristics, and facilitate translations of commonly used policy languages. “We would like to see the interchange language become standardized so that there would be widespread use, development of more tools and protocols around it,” Kagal says.”
