Abstract

In this paper, we describe a language based approach to the specification of authorisation policies that can be used to support the range of access control policies in commercial object systems. We discuss the issues involved in the design of a language for role based access control systems. The notion of roles is used as a primitive construct within the language. This paper describes the basic constructs of the language and the language is used to specify several access control policies such as role based access control, static and dynamic separation of duty, delegation as well as joint action based access policies. The language is flexible and is able to capture meta-level operations and it is often these features which are significant when it comes to the applicability of an access control system to practical real situations.
