Abstract: This study proposes a framework called C-SKAR which supports interaction and collaboration between two or more knowledge sharing systems in a secure fashion. The security architecture deployed within C-SKAR is capable of protecting collaborative knowledge acquisition and retrieval through the enforcement of site authenticity, access entitlements, dynamic constraints and access rules. Using this approach, existing online knowledge sharing systems can leverage on the knowledge accumulated by other knowledge sharing systems and therefore increase their local content efficiently and systematically. This would contribute to a healthy growth of collaborative knowledge sharing on the Internet that could in turn result in broad positive impacts on overall knowledge transfer between humans and the society.
