Abstract

The widespread use of eXtensible Markup Language (XML) for data representation and exchange has led to increasing research interest in methods for XML content searching, presentation, and access control. This paper presents an XML repository searcher-browser application with a declarative role-based access control framework; the proposed access control model allows the definition of a finegrained access policy to be applied to the underlay data content. The auto-generated user interface for the accessing of XML content provides a light-weight application that, while taking into account the access control policy, is also suitable for distributed mobile applications.
