Abstract

Role-Based Access Control is an access control scheme born to accommodate organizational access control policies. Despite RBAC is widely used, it presents some handicaps when accommodating the natural user progression within a system: from low access privileges, when the user is new in the system, to higher access privileges as the user experience grows. In this paper, we build on FRBAC to propose an RBAC-like intra-role user progression scheme inspired in role playing games. User progression will result in progressive abilities acquisition and enhancing, enhancing RBAC with more expressive access control policies.
