<p>Tracking and tracing individual items is a new and emerging trend in many industries. Driven by matur- ing technologies such as Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) and upcoming standards such as the Electronic Product Code (EPC), a rapidly increasing number of enter- prises are collecting vast amounts of tracking data. To en- able traceability over the entire life-cycle of items data has to be shared across independent and possibly competing en- terprises. The need to simultaneously compete and cooper- ate requires a traceability system design that allows compa- nies to share their traceability data while maintaining com- plete sovereignty over what is shared and with whom.</p> <p>Based on an extensive study of traceability applications, we introduce the formal concept of traceability networks and highlight the technical challenges involved in shar- ing data in such a network. To address these challenges, we present an innovative combination of query process- ing techniques from P2P networks and distributed as well as parallel databases with confidentiality enforcement tech- niques.</p>
