Deriving authority from security policy
This webpage has been archived. Its content will not be updated.
Integrating the authorization of access to national services with the constantly changing requirements for access and resource management within institutions leads to a very complex network of constraints, and will lead to high operational costs and barriers to uptake.
This project will study the potential of the recent research work on policy driven management to provide more effective solutions to the integrated management of security. It will use an extended scenario to estimate the complexity involved and the benefits of a policy-based approach in overcoming it. It will deliver a review of how these techniques can be applied to the national academic infrastructure over a five year period and identify the actions needed to realise the benefits.
