In intelligent ubiquitous home environments, access control should be able to accommodate dynamic mechanism that was considered various access control components including temporal and spatial information. In this paper, we propose dynamic role based access control model can support smart and secure services suitable for intelligent ubiquitous home. The proposed model is appropriate for user-oriented service based on ubiquitous computing. In the proposed model, a permission is assigned by context information. In addition, this paper observes detailed access control procedures for service in intelligent ubiquitous home, providing use case scenarios and prototype design.
