Companies and individuals have natural concerns about the security of their data. The term “security” is rather ambiguous, in that it can mean “confidentiality,” “authenticity” “timeliness,” “availability” or many other definitions. We use the term “security” to mean ensuring that the data can be accessed only by authorized entities and that the data is confidential, authentic, up-to-date, and exists.
