LSD-ABAC: Lightweight Static and Dynamic Attributes Based Access Control Scheme for Secure Data Access in Mobile Environment

Li, F., Rahulamathavan, Y. & Rajarajan, M. (2014). LSD-ABAC: Lightweight Static and Dynamic Attributes Based Access Control Scheme for Secure Data Access in Mobile Environment. 2014 IEEE 39th Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN), pp. 354-361. doi: 10.1109/lcn.2014.6925791


Technology advancements in smart mobile devices empower mobile users by enhancing mobility, customizability and adaptability of computing environments. Mobile devices are now intelligent enough to capture dynamic attributes such as unlock failures, application usage, location and proximity of devices in and around its surrounding environment. Different users will have different set of values for these dynamic attributes. In traditional attribute based access control, users are authenticated to access restricted data using long term static attributes such as password, roles, and physical location. In this paper, in order to allow secure data access in mobile environment, we securely combine both the dynamic and static attributes and develop novel access control technique. Security and performance analyse show that the proposed scheme substantially reduces the computational complexity while enhances the security compare to the conventional schemes.
