Automated fixing of access policy implementation in Industrial Networked Systems [pdf]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
Access control (AC) is the core of every architectural solution for information security. Indeed, no effective protection scheme can abstract from the careful design of access control policies, and infrastructures underlying modern Industrial Networked Systems (INSs) are not exceptions from this point of view. This paper presents a comprehensive framework for INS access control. The proposed approach enables the description of both positive and negative AC policies, by applying the Role Based Access Control (RBAC) paradigm to typical INS implementations, while taking into account different levels of abstraction. Suitable techniques are adopted to check whether or not policies are correctly implemented in the system (verification). When conflicts are detected, possible (re)assignments of credentials to the system users are automatically computed, that can be adopted to correct anomalies (conflict resolution). © 2017 IEEE.
