Semantic access control for cloud computing based on e-healthcare

Sun, Lili and Wang, Hua and Yong, Jianming and Wu, Guoxin (2012) Semantic access control for cloud computing based on e-healthcare. In: CSCWD 2012: 16th International Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work in Design, 23-25 May 2012, Wuhan, China.


With the increased development of cloud computing, access control policies have become an important issue in the security filed of cloud computing. Semantic web is the extension of current Web which aims at automation, integration and reuse of data among different web applications such as clouding computing. However, Semantic web applications pose some new requirements for security mechanisms especially in the access control models. In this paper, we analyse existing access control methods and present a semantic based access control model which considers semantic relations among different entities in cloud computing environment. We have enriched the research for semantic web technology with role-based access control that is able to be applied in the field of medical information system or e-Healthcare system. This work demonstrates how the semantic web technology provides efficient solutions for the management of complex and distributed data in heterogeneous systems, and it can be used in the medical information systems as well.
