The URA97 Model for Role-Based User-Role Assignment

  author={Ravi S. Sandhu and Venkata Bhamidipati},
In role-based access control (RBAC) permissions are associated with roles, and users are made members of appropriate roles thereby acquiring the roles' permissions. The principal motivation behind RBAC is to simplify administration. An appealing possibility is to use RBAC itself to manage RBAC, to further provide administrative convenience. In this paper we introduce a role-based administrative model, called URA97 (user-role assignment '97), for assignment of users to roles.
