  4. Abstract:
  5. With the advance and growth of knowledge management in the past two decades, currently knowledge is regarded as one of the most significant organizational assets. Today the success of businesses is dependent on the value that they give to knowledge and how they attempt to manage it. Hence, in such conditions, knowledge as a valuable asset of the organization must be well-protected. What is managed in knowledge management in organizations is actually not knowledge. What are managed are the knowledge-related processes thru which knowledge workers interact with each other. Hence, organizational knowledge protection does not mean protecting knowledge, but securing the management of knowledge and making policies about knowledge processes. In this article, the dimensions that affect secure knowledge management is presented as well as a survey of ten approaches to secure knowledge management that have been presented in the literature in recent years. Also a secure knowledge flow model, based on different levels of knowledge confidentiality, process confidentiality, and knowledge worker trust is introduced. This model is presented by formal specification and implemented in an imaginary software organization. The model is then assessed based on a secure system knowledge management framework
