Security and privacy are key concerns on the Internet. Policies representing resource access based on knowledge-oriented descriptions have gained momentum with the emergence of semantic technologies.
Traditional access control frameworks were syntactic and error prone,
lacking the necessary expressivity and efficiency of a solution where
soundness and completeness of the underlying logics in access control
descriptions could be critical to harness their potential. In this
paper, SecurOntology is presented. SecurOntology encompasses a
three-fold strategy: an ontology for access control, a logical
declarative framework and a software architecture as a proof-of-concept
of the advantages of this solution.
