What is the provenance-based proof layer in the Semantic Web? How should people represent, propagate, and integrate provenance knowledge? This column studies recent notions of provenance from closely related communities (including database systems, workflow management, and service-oriented computing), defines the notion of provenance for the Semantic Web's proof layer, and identifies promising open questions and research directions for further research.
