In this article we propose an approach which simplifies the task of DBAs in specifying the access constraints on a XML document. In the proposed methodology, for enforcing a security policy on a XML document, the DBA has to specify access constraints in terms of easy to understand Declarative Access Control Specification (DACS) language primitives. Once the constraints are specified, their corresponding security views are generated by the proposed implemented system. A working prototype based on above approach is also presented.
