Generalized Temporal Role-Based Access Control Model

Mar 06, 2002

Abstract

In this talk, we present a generalized temporal role-based access control model that deals with temporal aspects of roles and trigger-based role enabling requirements. The model allows specification of periodic as well as duration constraints on roles, user-role assignments and role-permission assignments. In this model, temporal constraints on role enabling and role activation can be independently specified. A user-activated role can be restricted to various activation constraints such as cardinality constraint, maximum active duration constraint within a specified interval, etc. The model can be applied to several real-world applications including workflow systems.
