Zhou, Xin and Liu, Ying (2010): Toward proactive knowledge protection in community-based software development. In: Proceedings of the 2010 International Workshop on Cooperative and Human Aspects of Software Engineering 2010. pp. 76-83. http://dx.doi.org/10.1145/1833310.1833323

Leveraging the abundant community resources, e.g. campus students, programming fans, software amateurs, is promising to be a flexible and effective approach for relieving the enterprise's IT resource shortage. However, the concern about confidential knowledge exposure makes most enterprises hesitate to outsource software development to community resources. Unlike the traditional legal protection mechanism that prevents community resources from exposing the already known confidential knowledge, this paper presents a proactive confidential knowledge protection technology, which prevents the community resources from learning the confidential knowledge in software development activities. First, the client is facilitated on identifying confidential knowledge involved in the software development activity. Then, the risky software design elements that might expose confidential knowledge are identified in both qualitative and quantitative way. Based on the identification result, a holistic proactive protection solution is presented by orchestrating task reservation, task pretending and task partition activities. Finally, the processed software development tasks are dispatched to community developers without worrying about the confidential knowledge exposure. The technology has been preliminarily validated in two community-based software development cases.
