Abstract

This chapter discusses the integration of access control in the development process of hypermedia applications. Two key ideas are proposed: the use of high level, abstract access control models and the inclusion of access control in the whole life cycle of hypermedia applications. Authors present an access control model for hypermedia that makes it possible to formalize access policies using elements of the hypermedia domain, those used to specify structure and navigation services. Abstract models are not enoughto assist developers in dealing with security in a systematic way. Thus, authors describe how high-level access rules can be specified following the Ariadne Development Method (ADM). The ARCE project is used as example of development.
