A Blockchain based Access Control Scheme

  title={A Blockchain based Access Control Scheme},
  author={Maryline Laurent-Maknavicius and Nesrine Kaaniche and Christian Le and Mathieu Vander Plaetse},
: Recent years have witnessed the trend of increasingly relying on remote and distributed infrastructures. This increased the number of reported incidents of security and privacy breaches, mainly due to the loss of data control. Towards these challenges, we propose a new access control scheme based on emerging blockchain infrastructures. Our approach relies on the use of smart auditable contracts deployed in blockchain infrastruc-tures. Thus, it offers transparent and controlled access to…

Prov-Trust: Towards a Trustworthy SGX-based Data Provenance System

Prov-Trust is proposed, a decentralized and auditable SGX-based data provenance system relying on highly distributed ledgers that allows anchored data to have public witness, providing tamper-proof provenance data, enabling the transparency of data accountability, and enhancing the secrecy and availability of theprovenance data.

Automatic Generation of XACML Code using Model-Driven Approach

A Domain-Specific Modeling Language (DSML) is proposed, called Dual-XACML that supports both Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and Attribute Based Access control (ABAC), and allows the user to create a model of access control policies for the target system.
