Abstract Abstract—As web-based technologies mature, dynamic graphs of interlinked resources are replacing hierarchical catalogs as means for storing and organizing information. Such graphs, or semantic networks, often span multiple static and dynamic resources from a variety of sources. It is often highly desirable to give users access only to parts of the semantic network without breaking its logical continuity or consistency. Traditional access control models, such as mandatory, discretionary and role-based access controls, are ill-suited for these new resource structures. New models that allow users to specify access rights in terms of semantic relationships between various objects within semantic networks are needed. In this paper we discuss requirements for an access control model for semantic networks and present our approach and an initial implementation. We also describe end user tools for policy specification and assessment. I.
