2009 (English)In: International Conference for Internet Technology and Secured Transactions, ICITST 2009, 2009, 5402600- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
One approach to authorization of mobile agents is to use XACML policies by assigning roles to agents and then enforcing role-based authorization. In this paper we show how traditional XACML polices, used for user access control in distributed environments, can be used for mobile agents' access control. We use such polices to manage delegation of access rights from users to agents while at the same time following the core principles of the XACML standard. We also propose a combination of policies that map users to their mobile agents and make access control decisions for mobile agents by evaluating complex policy sets.
