Xie Receives Research Award to Study Access Control

Dr. Tao Xie, assistant professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $50,000 by the National Institute of Standards and Technology to support his research proposal titled “Access Control Policy Tool for Privilege Management and Data-Level Access Control Pilot.”


The award will run from March 31, 2010 to March 30, 2011.


Abstract - This project develops the Access Control Policy Testing (ACPT) tool to support information sharing between affiliated organizations. The sharing of information should comply with security and privacy policies from federal, state, local or tribal security and privacy status. ACPT allows policy authors to compose and combine policies based on predefined templates of practical policy models. ACPT converts resulting models with user-provided attributes to machine-readable XACML representation, which can be directly enforced by information sharing entities.
