RAP: RDF Access-control Policiies

October 1, 2004 - June 1, 2005

Resource Description Format (RDF ) stores have been paving way for many semantic web application, but the current evolution of these stores primarily focus on efficient searching of triples and storing colossal number of triples. Little focus is given to the how triples would be maintained or how access to these triple would be controlled. In his project we prototype an RDF store interface with complete maintenance capabilities and access control. We also propose a policy based access control model for an RDF store, to provide control over the various actions possible on an RDF store. We also discuss on how the Hypertext Transport Protocol (HTTP) and its extensions can be used to provide communication with the store. The basic framework will allow an agent (person or program) to perform various actions inserting, deleting, searching on an RDF store and the policy is used to decide if the action is permitted or prohibited
