Access Control Models and Mechanisms
In today's generation of information technology, it is critical to manage large-scale networks and distributed systems efficiently and securely. We are motivated to provide novel access control solutions that fulfill the needs of heterogeneous applications and environments. Our research and development focus on leading edge issues of access control, including generic access control models, methodologies, mechanisms, security policies, and innovative access control applications.
