Trust-based access control and RBAC integration

This result describes a simple generic policy language for reasoning about risk in applications, particularly suited to resource-constrained devices common in ubiquitous computing environments. The policy language is based on a decision-theoretic view of risk taken from economics that enables us to quantify the uncertainty of global computing environments as risk.

The ability to transform uncertain decision-making into risk-based decision-making within a trust-based access control policy is the primary innovation of this result. This result is of use to the trust management scientific community as a way of quantifying the uncertainty involved in interactions with little known or unknown principals. It is currently too early to estimate its commercial potential. As a result, no specific steps have been taken at this stage in order to protect any IPR emanating from it.
