Abstract: Traditional role-based access control models(RBAC) are restricted in certain domains and difficult toextend for other applications. The problem is exacerbated with the need to use different RBAC models to manage a variety of resources. Rather than changing the entire RBAC,we propose a generic access control model that takes the advantage of RBAC’s reasoning capability and then extends it by adding attributes which significantly improve the inference process. An algorithmic framework is depicted with customizable interfaces that adapts to the requirements of the users. The generic access control model potentially can be adapted to a broader range of user requirements.
