Abstract:

The Enterprise Access Control EDAC represents an access control model that adheres to the basic principles of Role-Based Access Control RBAC standard published by the National Institute of Standards and Technology NIST. The EDAC accommodates complex and scalable access control situations many government agencies and civilian organizations are experiencing when managing resource access. Access control is the process that evaluates resource access. Resources can represent software applications, web services and even facility access. An effective access control model should be capable of evaluating resource access based on user characteristics and environmentals. Currently Access Control Lists ACL and groups represent static listings of individual names allowed access to resources.
