Abstract

[Abstract]: Role-based delegation model (RBDM) based on role-based access control (RBAC) has proven to be a flexible and useful access control model for information sharing on distributed collaborative environment. Authorization is an important functionality for RBDM in distributed environment where a conflicting problem may arise when one user grants permission of a role to a delegated user and another user grants the negative permission to the delegated user. This paper aims to analyse role-based group delegation features that has not studied before, and to provide an approach for the conflicting problem by adopting negative authorization. We present granting and revocation delegating models first, and then discuss user delegation authorization and the impact of negative authorization on role hierarchies.
