Xie Receives Award to Study Information Sharing Security

Dr. Tao Xie, associate professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded $30,000 by the National Institute of Standards & Technology to support his research proposal titled “Access Control Policy Tool (ACPT) Phase II Development.”
The award will run from March 19, 2012 through December 18, 2012.
Abstract:  This project enhances 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.
