PhD Research

As part of the PhD research I am investigating the creation, standardization and formalization of models of Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC). Additionally, I am investigating the integration of delegation, user groups and hierarchical concepts into these models.

Updates about the progress of my PhD research will be posted here as they happen.
