Enforcing controlled access to resources in cancer research systems, while facilitating resource sharing among collaborators, is a challenging problem. This is especially challenging when resources are distributed across organizational boundaries and researchers from a distributed set of organizations require access to them. In this chapter, we will present motivating use cases, a software solution, and policies for enforcing access control in large distributed cancer research systems.
