Research on a New Access Control Technology
The term usage control (UCON) is a generalization of access control to cover obligations, conditions, continuity (ongoing controls) and mutability. Traditionally, access control has dealt only with authorization decisions on a subject's access to target resources, and as a consequence of access have not been systematically studied. In this paper we motivate the need for usage control, study a family of ABC models as a core model for usage control and show how it encompasses traditional access control, such as mandatory, discretionary and role-based access control,. In addition, we also discuss architectures that introduce a new reference monitor for usage control and some variations.
