The iKaaS (intelligent Knowledge-as-a-Service) platform integrates the data on multiple local clouds organically and provides the data to various types of applications as knowledge while taking security and privacy fully into account. However, access control on the iKaaS platform is not without complications because the application may access personal data in different countries from the one where the application exists. We thus design a security gateway that is set at the entrance of each local cloud and can control access while interpreting the differences in regulations and guidelines between countries.
