Provenance determines the origin of the data by tracing and recording the actions that are performed on the data. Therefore, provenance is used in many fields to ensure the reliability and quality of data. In this work, provenance information is used to meet the security needs in information systems. For this purpose, a domain-independent provenance model is proposed. The proposed provenance model is based on the Open Provenance Model and Semantic Web technologies. The goal of the proposed provenance model is to integrate the provenance and security concepts in order to detect privacy violations by querying the provenance data. In order to evaluate the proposed provenance model, we illustrated our domain-independent model by integrating it with an infectious disease domain and implemented the Healthcare Provenance Information System.
