It describes the architecture components, the proposed extensions to RBAC that facilitate context-aware access control policy, details of the prototyped implementation, and a number of performance results.

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.
