Research for Implementation

There is one book http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1580533701/ FKC03 and a surprisingly large number of articles, papers, PhD theses, and web sites that touch on aspects of the design and implementation of role-based access control for ORBIT. Many of these sources are theoretical in nature, although some of the theoretical work includes implementation of tools to specify and check user-role assignments and constraints. Some of the papers address administrative issues. The following sources discuss RBAC implementation issues.

Ferraiolo, Barkley, and Kuhn's paper describes the features of RBAC including dynamic separation of duty and their implementation of the NIST RBAC model RBAC/Web NIST RBAC Software within a corporate intranet http://orbit-lab.org/attachment/wiki/Internal/Rbac/RbacResources/p34-ferraiolo.pdf FBK99.
