Recording Provenance for SQL Queries and Updates
Knowing the origin of data (i.e., where the data was copied or created from)—its provenance—is vital for assessing the trustworthiness of contemporary scientific databases such as UniProt [16] and SWISSPROT [14]. Unfortunately, provenance information must currently be recorded manually, by added effort of the database maintainer. Since such maintenance is tedious and error-prone, it is desirable to provide support for recording provenance in the database system itself. We review a recent proposal for incorporating such support, as well as its theoretical properties.
