A model for constraint and delegation management

Pham, Quan, Reid, Jason F., & Dawson, Edward (2011) A model for constraint and delegation management. In The 7th Information Security Practice and Experience Conference (ISPEC 2011), 30th May - 1st June 2011, Guangzhou, China.


This paper introduces a model to facilitate delegation, including ad-hoc delegation, in cross security domain activities. Specifically, this paper proposes a novel delegation constraint management model to manage and track delegation constraints across security domains. An algorithm to trace the authority of delegation constraints is introduced as well as an algorithm to form a delegation constraint set and detect/prevent potential conflicts. The algorithms and the management model are built upon a set of formal definitions of delegation constraints.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
