A Framework for Flexible Access Control in Digital Library Systems
Traditional access control models are often found to be inadequate for digital libraries. This is because the user population for digital libraries is very dynamic and not completely known in advance. In addition, the objects stored in a digital library are characterized by fine-grained behavioral interfaces and highly-contextualized access restrictions that require a user's access privileges to be updated dynamically. These motivate us to propose a trust-based authorization model for digital libraries. Access privileges can be associated with both objects and content classes. Trust levels associated with these specify the minimum acceptable level of trust needed of a user to allow access to the objects. We use a vector trust model to calculate the system's trust about a user. The model uses a number of different types of information about a user, for example, prior usage history, credentials, recommendations etc., to calculate the trust level in a dynamic manner and thus ach...
