Location constraints in digital rights management
Muhlbauer, Adam, Salim, Farzad, Safavi-Naini, Reihaneh, Sheppard, Nicholas P., & Surminen, Martin (2008) Location constraints in digital rights management. Computer Communications, 31(6), pp. 1173-1180.
Digital rights management allows information owners to control the use and dissemination of electronic documents via a machine-readable licence. This paper describes the design and implementation of a system for creating and enforcing licences containing location constraints that can be used to restrict access to sensitive documents to a defined area. Documents can be loaded onto a portable device and used in the approved areas, but cannot be used if the device moves to another area. Our contribution includes a taxonomy for access control in the presence of requests to perform non-instantaneous controlled actions.
