Title

Access Control in the MSF Security Framework

Presenter

Janne Karhunen, Nokia

Abstract

Ideal access control framework does not require any administration from the end user or the system administrator. While trying to reach this noble goal Maemo/Meego security framework has taken the approach where access policy is not best defined by the system administrators, but by the people who design the applications. Thus, goal of the framework has been to provide applications enough means to conveniently implement the access policy with minimal changes to the application and the system surrounding it.
