Policy Management, Transparency and Compliance
Policy Language – First version (D2.1) 31 MAR 2021
This report introduces the first version of the policy language of TRAPEZE, called PLinst, and– in preparation for the next version of the language – it proposes policy histories as an efficient way to support negation in consent policies.
Sticky Policies – First version (D2.2) 30 AUG 2021
A sticky policy is a machine-readable policy that accompanies the data, regulating its usage and specifying the applicable obligations and organizational constraints as the data migrates across multiple recipients. All kinds of TRAPEZE’s policies can be sticky policies.
Transparency and compliance checking – First version (D2.3) 27 AUG 2021
This first report on reasoning algorithms introduces correct and complete algorithms that support compliance checking for two of the planned new features of TRAPEZE’s policy language, namely instances and negation.
Compliance and explanation engines – First version (D2.4) 27 AUG 2021
The first version of TRAPEZE’s engine can check the compliance and the consistency of policies written in PLinst (see also TRAPEZE deliverable D2.1).
Engine scalability properties – First version (D2.5) 11 AUG 2022
This deliverable reports the result of a systematic performance analysis of TRAPEZE’s reasoner for PLinst (i.e. version 1 of TRAPEZE’s policy language, which extends SPECIAL’s language with instances). The data and code used for the experiments can be found here.
Policy Language – Second version (D2.6) 31 AUG 2022
This report introduces the second version of the policy language of TRAPEZE, called PLT2, which extends SPECIAL’s policy language with instance-valued properties and exceptions in data subject policies.
Sticky Policies – Second version (D2.7) 31 AUG 2022
This report is an update of D2.2 and describes an implementation of a blockchain-based solution on how to make sticky policies (and their evolution) tamper-proof and how to make the connection between the sticky policy and the data tamper-proof.
Transparency and compliance checking algorithms – Second version (D2.8) 31 AUG 2022
This second report on reasoning algorithms introduces correct and complete algorithms for flexible sticky policies, the new feature of TRAPEZE’s policy language.

The second part focuses on the implementation of a broader approach to sticky policies based on previous work in D2.8. The report concludes with a summary and final remarks.
Engine scalability properties – Second Version (2.10) 31. AUG 2023
This report contains a systematic performance analysis of the second version of the Java compliance
engine, which supports instances, negation (more precisely, exceptions to a general
policy), and a selected range of sticky policies of practical interest.
TRAPEZE Platform, Integration and Components
Securing citizens’ smart terminals and online communication – First version (D3.3) 27 AUG 2021
This deliverable identifies the interactions between the TRAPEZE platform and the citizens via their personal smartphones or tablets and the best ways to protect them through the Kaspersky Mobile Security SDK (KMS-SDK), a multi-layered security framework for building online protection directly into mobile applications.
TRAPEZE Platform – First version (D3.4) 28 FEB 2022
This report describes the interim implementation of the TRAPEZE platform. The interim implementation does not include all components and it is not expected to cover all functionality needed.

Securing citizens smart terminals and online communication – Second Version (D3.7) 29.APR 2023
This deliverable focuses on the interactions between the TRAPEZE platform and citizens using their personal smartphones or tablets. It emphasizes the use of the Kaspersky Mobile Security SDK (KMS-SDK), a comprehensive security framework integrated into mobile applications to protect users. The TRAPEZE Mobile app, designed for Android devices, leverages KMS-SDK features tailored to citizens’ needs. It offers security against various threats, alerts users about malicious websites, and ensures the safety of online communications.
TRAPEZE platform – Second version (D3.8) 30 AUG 2023
This report details the implementation of the TRAPEZE platform, which followed an iterative approach to integrate technical developments from various work packages. As the project evolved, additional components and functionalities were incorporated into the platform.
