An accountable system is defined as a system that makes information usage transparent so that it can be determined later whether the use of such information is appropriate or not under a given set of rules. Weitzner et al. have argued that provenance could be used in the creation of accountable systems helping users to answer questions related to the processing of information. Provenance consists of causal dependencies between data and events explaining what contributed to a result in a specific state. If provenance of data is available, processing becomes transparent since the provenance of data can be analysed against usage rules to decide whether processing was performed in compliance with such rules.
