Access control in open distributed systems


Udzir, Nur Izura and Wood, Alan and Muda, Zaiton and Dehghantanha, Ali and Abdullah @ Selimun, Mohd Taufik and Abdullah, Azizol (2012) Access control in open distributed systems. In: Workshop on Information Technology and Applications (WIT-A 2012), 4-5 June 2012, Istanbul, Turkey. (pp. 1-5).


The Linda model provides an alternative paradigm of coordination for open, distributed systems, where agents may communicate anonymously via shared data spaces called tuple spaces. Although it promotes flexibility and openness with its time-, space- and name-uncoupling properties, it raises issues with regard to the access control and protection, which may be vital in certain applications. In this paper, we discuss two conventional access control mechanisms-access control lists and capabilities-which can be incorporated in the Linda·model, and their suitability and implications on the flexibility of the model.
