SEMANTICS-BASED ACCESS CONTROL - Ontologies and Feasibility Study of Policy Enforcement Function

Anton Naumenko

Abstract

The current Web evolves to the Web 2.0 that is an intermediate step towards Semantic Web. Conventional security measures fall short to serve both, emerging technologies and innovative web-based information systems. The paper presents our research and development results towards adoption Semantic Web standards for the creation of unified view on the access control area that enables flexible, collaborative and distributed management of access control based on semantic relations amongst relating concepts. The integration of Semantic Web and access control disciplines leads to the elaboration of new more intelligent, flexible and reusable access control mechanisms and tools. The paper has practical orientation, evaluating research results and ideas with the development and testing of the prototype for the enforcement of access control policies based on the ontologies.
