Currently, the rapid development of information technology requires also the additional features for access control domain. The information is more and more distributed through the networks or federation of numerous information systems located in different places in a country or on the globe. In order to meet the requirements and problems of modern access control, a new implementation of access control model, called implementation of Role-based Usage Control (iRBUC) model is proposed. Proposed iRBUC assures the usage control in accessing data, which is very important especially in distributed information systems, and assures the organization of access control strategies well-described in RBAC (Role-Based Access Control) model or its extensions.
