Abstract

As organizations implement information strategies that call for sharing access to resources in the networked environment, mechanisms must be provided to protect the resources from adversaries. The proposed delegation framework addresses the issue of how to advocate selective information sharing in role-based systems while minimizing the risks of unauthorized access. We introduce a systematic approach to specify delegation and revocation policies using a set of rules. We demonstrate the feasibility of our framework through policy specification, enforcement, and a proof-of-concept implementation on specific domains, e.g. the healthcare environment. We believe that our work can be applied to organizations that rely heavily on collaborative tasks.
