Information sharing has become eminent to supply chain management, as it allows supply chain partners to collaborate more closely. However, currently supply chain partners are often on disjoint information platforms, which prevent them from effectively sharing critical supply chain information. One of the main barriers of information sharing is revealing confidential information to unintended parties and thus the disclosure of privacy. Therefore the information sharing needs and characteristics of a supply chain has been analyzed and subsequently a cross platform privacy and security framework to allow safe information sharing has been proposed.
