Title: Enabling an Enterprise-wide, Data-centric Operating Environment
Published: June 21, 2013
Abstract: Although access control (AC) currently plays an important role in securing DSs, if properly envisaged and designed, access control can serve a more vital role in computing than one might expect. The Policy Machine (PM), a framework for AC developed at NIST, was designed with this goal in mind. The PM has evolved beyond just a concept to a prototype implementation and is now being directed toward an open source project.
